"Best described as Stephen King on acid, this flashback-laden thriller has a paisley sense of humor and a grow-your-own sensibility. Our hero is an aging freelance journalist (played realistically by author Robinson) who is saved from the brink of suicide when an old college roommate suddenly bursts into his life. Quicker than you can fire one up, we are embroiled in a stream-of-consciousness battle between a highly sensitive psychic (the roommate) and a serial killer, clumsily assisted by the narrator. An inside-out crime tale with a warm and friendly aura provided by its author, VERY BAD DEATHS is humanistic entertainment. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
