The Five Manners of Death, the latest thriller by nationally awarded novelist and physician Darden North, was released in print by WordCrafts Press. 

North’s fifth novel, The Five Manners of Death, is a taut, tense, and gripping tale about a long-buried secret, unleashed to begin the countdown of the five ways to die.  For Mississippi surgeon Diana Bratton, the novel’s protagonist, pages torn from a 1960s Ole Miss college yearbook reveal that murder is a family affair.  When a construction worker unearths a decades-old human skull on the campus of the University of Mississippi, he sets in motion a chain of events that leaves one woman desperate to rewrite history and another woman desperate to find the truth.
After the discovery of her Aunt Phoebe’s 50-year-old note detailing the five manners of death, surgeon Diana Bratton is surrounded by bodies.  Suicide, accident, natural cause, and one death classified undetermined are soon crossed off this grisly list—leaving Diana to believe that only homicide remains. But the police prove her wrong. Diana learns that murder is her family’s secret. Darden North has crafted a confident and chilling tale about lies, secrets, deception and the conflict that erupts when the past and present collide.  Meticulous plotting, richly-drawn, engaging characters and a shocking storyline combine to create an extraordinary thriller resplendent with twists, turns, and the unexpected.  A unique but realistic story teeming with the right mix of medical authenticity, The Five Manners of Death pushes readers deep into the minds of the characters as each learns that there is no one to trust and everyone has their own agenda. With this sensational, skillful and highly suspenseful tale, Darden North claims a solid spot among today’s finest thriller writers.  
According to Edgar Award nominee John M. Floyd, “If you like plot twists and surprises, you’ll love Darden North’s The Five Manners of Death, a fast-moving story of crime and deception in the modern South.

2018 MISSISSIPPI BOOK FESTIVAL

August 18, 2018, marked the fourth annual Mississippi Book Festival, an expanding and highly energetic literary lawn party gracing the beautiful, oak – draped grounds and surrounding buildings of the historic Mississippi State Capitol in downtown Jackson. The first two years of the festival, I worked as a volunteer in the Author Panelist room, having the opportunity to meet the visiting authors as well as local writers scheduled to present. In 2017 and again this year, I joined other writers outside in the Authors Alley tent on Mississippi Street, bordering the south lawn of the Capitol. This was an amazing opportunity to visit with many of my readers and to meet many new ones. Lots of signed books were discussed and placed in the hands of readers that Saturday in Authors Alley. Mid-August weather in Mississippi with its 90+ degree humidity will never dampen literary spirits, and fortunately we escaped the forecasted downpour! Thank you to Holly Lange and the other organizers and supp…
