After a construction worker unearths a human skull on a university campus dating to the 1960s, an older woman’s desperate attempt to erase history counts down the five ways to die in Darden North’s new thriller, The Five Manners of Death. The woman is the niece of Dr. Diana Bratton, a surgeon surrounded by bodies after the discovery of her Aunt Phoebe’s 50-year-old note detailing the manners of death. Suicide, accident, natural causes, and one death classified undetermined are soon crossed off this list—leaving Diana to believe that only murder remains. However, the police prove her wrong. Of the five ways to die, murder is her family secret.
