Now this is how a series should be handled: Keep putting them out with a variety of authors tackling the material. James Daniels comes to the literary plate of Lee Goldberg and William Rabkin’s THE DEAD MAN series and knocks it out of the park in RING OF KNIVES. ... The book goes into overdrive with creepy aspects, and there are plenty to go around. Cahill becomes the men’s-adventure hero that the book promises, more Penetrator then Executioner, in the sense of his action. It all builds to a fantastic fight sequence to close it all out. Daniels does some work to build upon the mythos of the series, providing readers with some information that will be explored more than likely as it progresses. I can’t stress how much fun the DEAD MAN books have been, especially since they are both under 100 pages and can be read in no time. Let’s hope the steak continues. —Bruce Grossman, Bookgasm
