  • The plot was excellently crafted

    Steven Max Russo’s novel, The Dead Don’t Sleep, starts with a killer slitting the throat of a Viet Cong message courier in a jungle in Vietnam. The killer then shoots his killer partner in the back because he slits the throat of a six year old Vietnamese girl. The novel then moves to present day with Bill Thompson and his Uncle Frank on a skeet shooting range in New Jersey where they are confronted as they are leaving by a guy who knew Jack from Vietnam. We find out later that the man’s name is Jack Sprague and was also a killer in Vietnam. At four o’clock the next morning the windows are shot out of Bill’s house where Uncle Frank is visiting. The three shooters leave torn baseball cards of players from the 1969 All Stars as a clue to Frank of who was responsible for shooting out the windows. Frank was in Vietnam in 1969. A couple of days later, Frank leaves Bill’s family for his home near Boland, Maine where the real action starts. The action was a little hard to follow but was made clearer by repeating the action from the viewpoints of several participants. I do think the reason for shooting of one of the characters near the end should be better explained. The epilogue perfectly set up a follow up novel. The plot was excellently crafted. I did notice several typo errors. Bill was the only completely innocent character in the action. I think I figured out who the spook was near the end, but I ‘m not sure everyone will. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel. I do highly recommend it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
