Publisher's Summary

Matthew Cahill is a simple man leading a quiet life... until he is tragically killed in an avalanche at a ski resort. Three months later his corpse is found and sent to the morgue - but then something inexplicable happens. He wakes up. Now he can see evil... as a festering rot that eats people alive from the inside out.
And he can see Mr. Dark, the horrific figure who gleefully spreads it like a plague... and whois the only one who can tell Matt whether he is still a man... or the walking dead.For Matt, each day is a journey into a supernatural world he knows nothing about... a quest for the answers to who he is and what he has become... and a bloody fight to save us, and his soul, from the clutches of pure evil.
Here are the first three unforgettable novels in Lee Goldberg & William Rabkin’s The Dead Man– Face of Evil, Ring of Knives, and Hell in Heaven – a horrifying new series that Post-Modern Pulps hails as “a direct spiritual descendant of the sorts of awesome pulp action adventure tales that the greats like Robert E. Howard loved to write!”

Interesting connected short horror stories...

When the body was first found in the snow, I kept waiting for it to pop up and bite/ attack/ eat somebody! (I had to share that;)
The stories don't have a ton of gore or monsters, but a supernatural foundation, and instead rely upon a mix of suspense and realistic fears / scary situations to create tension and "horror". Imagine seeing psychosis and evil represented as rot and decay in the people around you! Imagine a mental hospital where psychos and predator employees run the show - scary stuff. The third story was not as good as the first two, but I will still purchase volume 2.
Narration is very good, especially Luke Daniels who also does the Iron Druid Chronicles.

- Mark "I enjoy, epic and modern fantasy, science fiction, business, historical mystery, and technology books. Fav. series: Game of Thrones, Vampire Earth, Dresden, Iron Druid, Falco mysteries, Chris Anderson titles, Peaceful Warrior, and the Way of Kings (and more, of course;)"

Suprisingly Good!

What did you love best about The Dead Man Vol 1?

I liked that the character built up over time. This is really more like three 'adventures' for the hero of the book, from the time he first gets his supernatural 'powers' to his knowing more about them and helping others.

What other book might you compare The Dead Man Vol 1 to and why?

Don't really know.

What does James Daniels and Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The readers were pretty good at changing their voices to match the characters, but I couldn't help thinking that one of the 'evil nurses' was a giant frog!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could enjoy it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Hope the series keeps going. I bought Volume 2 to listen to next.
