The second adventure in THE DEAD MAN series that readers and book critics alike are already hailing as "an epic tale" that compares to the best of Stephen King and Dean Koontz....   Matthew Cahill is an ordinary man leading a simple life until a shocking accident changes everything. Now he can see a nightmarish netherworld that nobody else does. Now for him each day is a journey into a dark world he knows nothing about, a quest for the answers to who he is and what he has become...and a fight to save us, and his soul, from the clutches of pure evil. RING OF KNIVES
Matt believes a madman may hold the secret to defeating Mr. Dark, the horrific jester with the rotting touch. But to reach him, Matt must infiltrate a lunatic asylum, where he is soon caught up in a spiral of bloodshed and madness. His only chance of escaping with his life and sanity intact is to face the unspeakable terror that awaits him deep in the asylum's fog-shrouded woods...within the Ring of Knives.

William Rabkin is the author of the hugely successful PSYCH series of original mystery novels based on the hit TV series.


Daniels has added some genuine tension and blood-curdling passages. There is a torture scene in the story, that Ian Fleming would have been proud...Ring of Knives is very enjoyable, and suitably creepy. --Permission to Kill Blog

Now this is how a series should be handled. 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 --Bookgasm

 These books WILL kick you in the ass and make you sit gingerly on the edge of your seat before punching you in the gut with awesome bursts of horror! -- Tomb it May Concern

" Fans who like their psychological horror mixed in with supernatural elements will greatly enjoy this series," Hell Notes
