Book Reviews: Everyone Dies in the End

“Part thriller, part mystery, part off-kilter romance, it’s definitely another winner from the always entertaining Brian Katcher!”Brent Hartinger, author of Geography Club (Lambda Award Winner)

“A breakneck thriller infused with a healthy dash of black humor. Part The Da Vinci Code, part Hold Me Closer, Necromancer, and totally awesome.”Antony John, author of Elemental, Thou Shalt Not Road Trip
“The dialogue is realistic and demonstrates the main character’s quick wit. There are gory descriptions of the victims, but they are appropriate for teens who love a good mystery.” —School Library Journal

“Katcher, author of Almost Perfect, captures the flawed but honest voice of a guy who’s driven to succeed in his career—and with a girl—and finds himself in over his head; plenty of pop culture references, hubris, and hormones add authenticity. The breathtaking pace is balanced with flashbacks to the minister and his posse’s parallel investigation of Saberhagen, and though the shift to supernatural (and even Christian mystic) elements in the thriller is a little abrupt, it’s not unpleasant. Romance? Check. Comedy? Sure. Overall, though, this is a grittier (and slimmer) contemporary version of Bray’s The Diviners, giving it reluctant reader appeal for the Stephen King crowd.” —Bulletin For the Center on Children’s Books
