"A job well done! " --- Book Review by Cyrus A. Webb, Conversations Book Club President

"One thing I have come to believe with a book penned by author Darden North is that you should expect the unexpected. In Fresh Frozen he pushes the envelope further in his career with a novel that takes us into the most intimate experience a couple could experience together and shows what happens when the gifted hands of man try to replace the all-powerful hands of God. Rife with conflicts that cross moral decisions and emotional rollercosters that travel all imaginable feelings, this is one that will be read throughout the South with pride but across the world with respect and enjoyment. A job well done!" --- Cyrus A. Webb, Conversations Book Club President http://www.thebestbookclub.info

Conversations Reviews FRESH FROZEN by Bestselling Author Darden North

"One thing I have come to believe with a book penned by author Darden North is that you should expect the unexpected. In Fresh Frozen he pushes the envelope further in his career with a novel that takes us into the most intimate experience a couple could experience together and shows what happens when the gifted hands of man try to replace the all-powerful hands of God.

"Rife with conflicts that cross moral decisions and emotional rollercosters that travel all imaginable feelings, this is one that will be read throughout the South with pride but across the world with respect and enjoyment.

"Fresh Frozen succssfully blurs the line of what is considered right and wrong by some and puts the ability of free will into the hands and hearts of individuals. There is much in the book that can be dissected as to what dialogue the author is trying to encourage with his readers, but one thing is for certain and that is a dialogue will definitely be opened up.

"North's third title was chosen as one of Conversations Book Club's '25 Best Kept Literary Secrets of 2008.' Simply put, the book is a job well done from an author of whom nothing less is expected. Can't wait to read the next chapter in his literary career." --- Reviewed by Cyrus A. Webb, Conversations Book Club President

TERRIFIC REVIEW OF THE AUDIOBOOK VERSION: "THE 5 MANNERS OF DEATH"

Hi Readers (and Listeners):

I am happy to share reader and fellow author Michael Hartnett's review of the audiobook version of my latest thriller, "The 5 Manners of Death,"  narrarted by Steven Jay Cohen:

A Terrific Listen to a Memorable Mystery

"Boy, does Darden North have a way with the scene, whether in a drawing room, classroom, or operating room. Since the bodies keep dropping around our heroine, the surgeon Diana, in "The 5 Manners of Death," those scenes are physically and psychologically memorable. What a lively and satisfying listen. This foray is my first with an audio book. With a breathless intensity that captures the novel’s Southern flavor, narrator Steven Jay Cohen does justice to the fine writing, deftly capturing the eloquence, the snappy dialogue, and the building suspense.  As the title suggests, the victims are delivered in many forms of termination--all punctuated by those intermingled human dramas of stress, suspicion, and blame. All of t…

5 Star Review of "House Call" -- Michael Robbins' Narration of Audiobook Version

5 Star Review Published on Audible.com   "A Murder Mystery That Is So Much More"  Darden North’s "House Call" is a murder mystery, but it is so much more. The novel simultaneously tells tales of reverse discrimination, of the treacheries imbedded in diet/anti-depressant pharmaceuticals, of the financial intricacies of the new age of medicine, and of even the psycho-social legacies of Southern miscegenation. Grounded in and around the environs of the fictional Montclair, Mississippi, "House Call" presents a clever, smart depiction of modern life against the looming specter of a series of murders.
North has a sharp eye for characterization whether it’s the haughty Dr. Hawes or the amiable Dr. Gwinn. He deftly shifts perspective across a variety of intriguing storylines, all the while marking his prose with astute commentary (“Whether the body or their relationship was natural or unnatural did not seem to matter”). Centered on the young male OB-GYN, Knox Ch…
