Alex Drummond has enough to deal with, really. His father was killed by a drunk driver a few years ago; his mother got remarried and moved them in with her new husband, who is a vicious alcoholic and beats Alex frequently to within an inch of his life; Alex's step-brother, Frank, is a layabout who also beats on him, and his two step-sisters are an annoyance to him; and he's an outsider at school, small and picked on by the larger kids. Now he's developed an alarming tendency - when he touches things that were somehow touching a person when they were murdered, he falls into a vision and relives their death. And the people whose deaths he is reliving expect him to do something about it. Partly a paranormal suspense book, partly a coming-of-age story, and even including a little bit of romance, "A Life of Death" is a completely amazing story! I won't lie to you, it is often very intense - the tension evinced by this book is amazingly well-done and I often felt my heart racing from the extremity of emotions that it raised. It is tightly plotted and suspenseful; the characters are well-developed and realistic - the whole thing just came to life in my mind while I was reading it, and the sudden silence whenever I would look up showed me just how much it filled my mind while I was reading it. The story is bracketed interestingly - the very beginning and very end are Alex as an older man, a police detective, helping his son with a project for school. The story itself is the tale he tells the boy. I thought this was a neat way to open and close the story and it left me with hopes that we might expect a series of Alex Drummond mystery novels in the future. I would certainly buy them! Fans of paranormal mystery and suspense stories should enjoy this book. Definitely give it a read as soon as you can!

A Life of Deat Alex Drummond has a rough life, he lives with a dysfunctional family and would like to live a normal life. But things are more crazy in his word when he discovers he has a special ability. When he touches an item from someone he an see, feel and experience what they went through right before they died. Yes, that is the frightening part he is experiencing the life of a murder victim.  I really Liked Alex, the story was very well written, I could feel Alex's emotions. I could understand why he felt and acted the way he did. The descriptive visions were also horrifying and I could feel the pain that Alex and his victims went through. I can not stress how much I enjoyed this read. I highly recommend "A Life of Death" to all.

The beginning was like any other, a kid questioning a father about his past story, except Alex Drummond is not ordinary for a cop. Alex's history is a sad one, an abusive stepfather and an equally abusive stepbrother. His step-sisters are a constant 'annoyance' while he barely knows his own mother anymore. Things change when he discovered a new friend and a new skill that no one has, now he has to decide what to do with. A coming of age story that shows how people make choices that affect their lives every day of their lives, so it is a great book for mystery buffs to read, young and old

The story starts at an older Alex is telling his son about his life. When Alex is a teenager, his dad is killed by a drunk driver and he goes to live with his mother and abusive step-father. If this isn’t hard enough, he develops the ability to touch an object that a person held in their final moments and experience what happened and the dead and he wants to do something about their deaths. But he struggles to help when he is all ready beaten and has to face unbelievers that are going to make this even harder. Wow, that’s all I can say. This book surprised me. I got sucked in and just had to find out how it ends. It’s now hard enough to go through the teen years without the abuse but to add a paranormal gift on top of that and you have a book with so much potential. I couldn’t do anything beyond read as fast as I could to find out what is going to happen next. This is a great story that anyone would like. I really hope there are more books about Alex Drummond to come. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

A LIFE OF DEATH opens with the adult Alex Drummond speaking with his son while working on a school project together. He’s telling his son about the year everything changed for him. Fade back and Alex Drummond is a high school senior stuck in a crappy situation. His father died, his mother remarried an abusive alcoholic, and he’s got three step-siblings. He’s also discovered a unique ability to see the final moments of those who have been murdered or died tragically by touching an object of theirs. Now Alex has to decide what to do with this ability – ignore it or learn to speak for the dead… A LIFE OF DEATH is a haunting coming of age story about a boy whose life has taken a turn for the worse after his father’s death. When he realizes his gift, it gives him choices he never realized he had before now. A LIFE OF DEATH is intense, fraught with emotion, and powerful. The characters are masterfully portrayed and the plot tight. I enjoyed A LIFE OF DEATH greatly and I think the author has a expressive voice which will make any story amazing.

your dad at a young age wasn't bad enough. Alex has to deal with a drunken, abusive step-father and to top it all off he's having 'visions' of the past. If you enjoyed Invisible Dawn (Altered Realities) you'll like Kincade's newest book about family, love, and a young man discovering himself. A well written story that just flows off the page.
