    Mitul Patel Never trust a dead man review august 18,2009

    I really like this book because it has a suspenseful mystery about murder. The mystery about Farold being found dead with a knife in his back and it was Selwyn's dagger and Selwyn is blamed for the murder. The book was very good because I couldn,t put it down until I fell asleep. I recommend this book to book to anyone who is interested in mystery and medieval times.
    I wouldn,t say there is any other book I have in mind that it better than this one. If I had to chose between this book and another one I would chose never trust a dead man. My rateing for this book is Six out of ten. Maybe others think so too.

    A Mystery Treat

    Never Trust a Dead man is the story of a boy named Sewlyn, who is fighting against Farold (the town bully) for the attention and love of one girl. After being humiliated by the hands of Farold in front of the tevern, Sewlyn finds himself heart broken. But when Farold is found murdered everybody assumes Sewlyn is the guilty party. Basically thinking he did it out of a jealous rage. The town¿s people come together and convict Sewlyn of this crime. His punishment is to be placed in the tomb with the victim (Farold). While in the tomb, he recieves help form two unlikely people, a witch and the now resorrected Farold. With their assistance Sewlyn sets out to find the true killer. I really enjoyed this book because it kept me on my toes. The mystery was finding out who or what was next. Not only was it a mystery, but it had a lot of comic relief. Whenever Sewlyn, Farold and the with was together something funny was bound to happen. The best thing about the story was the fact that I felt like I was part of the story, therefore I didn¿t want to put the book down so that I could find out who the killer was.

    Never Trust a Dead Man

    Never Trust a Dead Man This book, Never Trust a Dead Man was very amazing and Very fantastic. If you check this book out it¿s mysterious Power will make you read it over and over again. I liked this book because it has a great plot the other thing I Liked about this book is how the Author wrote the book. Instead off writing this book like any other mystery book The Author wrote about a mystery-Horror-Comedy about Love and life after death. This book is about mystery Because it is a murder situation where a guy name Farold Is murdered the villagers accused one of his enemies Selwyn of killing him. This was because Selwyn¿s knife Was used to kill the victim. This book is about love Because Selwyn and farold loved the same girl name Anora. This book is also about life after death. Farold Was dead and brought back to life by a witch named Elswyth. If you are interested in mystery books, read Never Trust A Dead Man. Interested in finding out who the real killer is Read Never Trust A Dead Man.
