My Review of Whispers Of Death by Ronald Kihali

Whispers Of DeathWhispers Of Death by Ronald Kihali
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

*A Quick Read for Poetry Lovers*
I enjoyed the complex emotions and thoughts in the poems. However, I would have had a greater enjoyment of the pictures painted by the words if the verses had been longer.
The poet's choice to used a blank verse style, sometimes with rhyming, gave it a lyrical sense. The rhetoric was impressive, adding strength to his voice. I found it reminiscent of piece I'd read while in high school - pieces that developed my love for poetry.
I liked Sonnet 17 (Peace). Ir really resonated with me. The strong themes in most of Ronald Kihali's work encouraged community and love. The contrast of light and dark... the desire to be better than we are and saved from the shadows of misery were nicely represented in The Arm That Ought to Rule.
If you love poetry, this is a book for you!

James J. Cudney's Protagonist, Kellan Michael Ayrwick


1.   Who are you?
o   What is your name?
·   Kellan Michael Ayrwick, but it seems I’ve got lots of nicknames from my friends, colleagues, and enemies.
o   Are you a fictional or historical character?
·   I’m definitely the one and only of my kind, and I was created less than a year ago. So, I’m fictional.
o   What should we know about you?
·   I’m a 32-year-old single father to a young girl, named Emma. My wife was killed in a drunk driving accident in Los Angeles.
·   I’m considering a move back to a small cozy town, named Braxton, in Pennsylvania where my family is from. My parents run Braxton College and want me to come back to teach.
·   I work in the TV/Film industry on someone else’s reality show, but I’d love to host my own murder mystery series.
2.   Tell us about your story:
o   When and where is your tale set?
·   The first book kicks off in current times, pretty much the here and now. Braxton is 1 of 4 villages in fictional Wharton County, which is in north central PA. It’s modeled after several different real-life towns and colleges.
o   What is your personal goal?  I mean, what do you ultimately want?
·   To find love again and get married. I’d like to have another kid or two, but I also want to publish a few books and mentor college students looking to work in television and movies.
·   Secretly, I think I want to be a detective as I seem to have a knack for finding dead bodies and solving crimes.
o   What is standing in your way?  What conflict(s) do you face?
·   The current sheriff, April Montague, loves to harass me. I am threatened weekly with time in a holding cell or being arrested.
·   My grandmother, Nana D, also asks me to help solve too many of her own small crimes, so I get stuck with way too many bosses. Let’s not even talk about my real boss, Dr. Myriam Castle. She’s a pain in the rear.
·   You’re probably seeing a theme in my life with the women I’m closest to… at least, I have a few that treat me fairly.
3.   How do I get a copy of your book?
o   What is the title or working title for this piece?
·   Academic Curveball followed by Broken Heart Attack were the first two books published. They are available on Amazon.
o   Is it available now or when can we expect to see it released?
·   The third one, Flower Power Trip, comes out in March 2019.

When an extra ticket becomes available to attend the dress rehearsal of Braxton's King Lear production, Kellan tags along with Nana D and her buddies, sisters-in-law Eustacia and Gwendolyn Paddington, to show support for the rest of the Paddington family. When one of them appears to have a heart attack in the middle of the second act, Nana D raises her suspicions and asks Kellan to investigate who killed her friend. Amidst family members suddenly in debt and a secret rendezvous between an unlikely pair, Kellan learns the Paddingtons might not be as clean-cut as everyone thinks. But did one of them commit murder for an inheritance?
Kellan's back in his second adventure since returning home to Pennsylvania. With his personal life in upheaval and his new boss, Myriam, making life difficult, will he be able to find a killer or will he get caught up in his own version of stage fright?
