Angel of Death: A Forensic Mystery by Alane Ferguson, is the second book of the series, The Christopher Killers. However, this book is so well written that when I first read it, I couldn't tell there were two. I started the series out with the second book instead of the first and was still able to understand the writing and the storyline. It is exciting and fun to read both books in the series, but not necessary to fully understand what is happening and to understand details. The story line starts out in a normal fashion but soon begins to make twists and turns that were not expected by the audience. This book will hook you within the first couple of pages. You will not be able to set it down. So, don't start to read this book unless you have time to read it and get sucked into its pages and its every detail. This book is an easy read but very entertaining and keeps your mind thinking and interested. This book intrigues you as the reader and will leave you wanting more. You think you know what will be the outcome but you will never guess the end to this mystery. Cameryn Mahoney is a high school student who is interested in her father's career. Her father is the medical examiner in the county in which they live. Cameryn is only seventeen but finds herself very interested in the forensic field. She has only grown up with her father and seems to be living a pretty regular life. What she doesn't know is that something will soon change, bringing excitement, sadness and mystery into her life. Alane Ferguson has written this book with much detail. She makes reading her books very enjoyable. They are easy to understand but she has a way with words that will hold your attention. Her writing style is such that you won't be able to guess what will happen next. Through her writing you can tell she has strength in disguising the next step the characters will take. Her enthusiasm for a good story and writing shows throughout her novel.

Alane Furguson has done it again, Angel of Death was great. It started off a little slow, but proggesed so much toward the end leaving the reader questioning. The ending was a complete shocker, and I can't wait to find out what happens to Camryn, Kyle, and her mother. Along with the other main characters. I highly recomend you read the entire series.

Alane Ferguson's The Angel of Death is the best, well-written mystery novel I have ever read. I say this because the end has such a surprising, unexpected twist, that it blows your mind. Not only the end, but through-out the whole book, the gears in the reader's head will be frantically turning, trying to contemplate this illogical murder in the tiny town of Silverton, Colorado. * * * The author understands balance, so the main character and coroner's assistant, Cameryn Mahoney, is not only dealing with what seems to be the most difficult case ever, but her mom coming back into her life, and her blossoming relationship with Kyle O'Neil. * * * As I was reading this book I was trying to figure out who did it. But Ferguson always "turns the table" on you, so you change your mind again, only to find yourself coming back to that person later on. The clues that are given to the reader don't seem to make any sense at first, like puzzle pieces that don't seem to fit together at all. But as the reader gets deeper into the story, the more the seemingly random clues come together, forming a magnificent mystery and the perfect ending to an almost unsolvable murder.

I am a big fan of forensic science mysteries so thought I'd try out this young adult series about a 17 year old girl who is an assistant to her father the coroner. There are a few leaps in plot that are probably there just because of the shortened format but otherwise this is an enjoyable read. I did find her first book [book: The Christopher Killer] to be the better of the series as there was a tad whiff of angst throughout this one where as in The Christopher Killer it only appeared at the end. There also the required "fat" happy best friend that is a tad clichéd but still it made for a good afternoon w/ a book.

Cameryn is a teenager who lives in a small town named Silverton. Her father is the town's coroner and she is his assistant. The Angel of Death is about what happens when Cameryn's dad gets a call about the death of her teacher, Mr. Oakes. But there's something strange about the condition of Mr. Oakes' and how he died. It looks as though his eyes were blown right out of their sockets, and no one can figure out how he died. Through questioning and autopsy reports Cameryn, her father, and the Sherrif try and figure out how Mr. Oakes died, and perhaps, who killed him.I really enjoyed reading The Angel of Death. It is a forensic mystery and a good one at that. Alane Ferguson makes the book very unpredictable and impossible to figure out. She gives just little clues so you can understand what's going on, but not enough to solve the mystery.

Cameron Mahoney is just 17 years old, but through her passion for forensics, she's earned a position helping her father, who is a coroner. In this book, Cameron's classmate, Kyle O'Neil, discovers the dead body of their teacher in his bed when he is sent to the teacher's house to find out why he's uncharacteristically late for a Scouting event. The condition of the body, and the way the teacher died is quite unusual, and Cameron finds herself involved in both the case and with Kyle. If you read her first book in the series, The Christopher Killer and liked it, you also like this one.

Really great forensic mystery. I dislike that it has such a similar cover to Stiff, but that's minor.

Cammie is back. When one of her teachers ends up mysteriously dead in his bed and the autopsy shows all his internal organs are burned, the coroners and sheriffs are working overtime to try to uncover what really happened. Meanwhile Cammie's mom is calling her and planning a visit, things between Cammie and Lyric are on the rocks, and Kyle O'Neill, local Mr. Wonderful, comes on to the scene as a love interest which is something Justin does not approve of. This book left me wanting to get my hands on book #3 in the series.

The novel, The Angel of Death, encompasses the theme of priority. You need to have a balance between your professional life and your social life. In the beginning, Camryn Mahoney (a 17-year-old high schooler who's the cornenr's assistant), struggles with maintaining focus on her job while dealing with typical teenage boy drama. Through out the book, Camryn didn't really learn anything from her situation yet. Even if she feels like she's changing in result of the relationship, she still acts the same. By the end he/she has learned ____. (232 pages/258 pages)

Cameryn (Cammie) Mahoney is like any seventeen year old girl in high school. She keeps secrets from her family, has some bumps in her relationship with her father and her best friend, and she is starting a new relationship, while someone is waiting in the wings for her. What makes Cammie unlike most seventeen year olds is she is a paid assistant to the county coroner, who just happens to be her father. In this sequel to the Christopher Killer, Cammie is once again involved with a murder. This time her English teacher, a scout leader is the victim. When Mr. Oakes didn¿t show up for a scout hike, Kyle O¿Neil goes to the scout leader¿s house and makes the gruesome discovery. In addition to the investigation, Cammie is having some hiccups with her best friend Lyric and she is beginning a relationship with Kyle . She is also keeping a secret from her family. She is awaiting the arrival of her mother whom she has not seen since she was four. The stress alone could kill her. The problem is she has so much on her plate she doesn¿t even realize she is a target of the killer until it is almost too late.

In novel, The Angel of Death, encompasses that you shouldnt judge a person until you get to know them. In the beginning, Camryn Mahoney, the protagonist, struggles with dealing with her emotions about an old teacher that gets murdered, and a new boy that comes into her life. Throughout the middle she perseveres and finds the murderer of her teacher, but to her surprise it is someone that she least expected. By the end of the novel, Camryn, yet again, escapes death, but isn't able to get the murderer.(258/258)
