Keith Rommel ‘The Cursed Man’ Review


Written by: Vitina Molgaard

Cursed is the man who dies, but the evil done by him survives.    -Abu Bakr

Keith Rommel’s Cursed is an excellent story that grabs the reader from the beginning and holds the attention in a death grip right through the finale.

Our main character Alister Kunkle has spent the last 25 years inside the Sunnyvale Capable Care Mental Institution. He’s had himself admitted in order to protect others from being exposed to him and his curse. What’s this curse you ask? Anyone that communicates with him dies within that same day, and their deaths are not easily explained or understood. But Dr. Anna Lee has studied his case and believes him to be simply deranged, so she sets out to clarify his actual state of mind. She has a successful visit but no one expects to see her return. When she does return the next day things become further complicated for Alister and virtually everyone around him.

This begins an outstanding narrative that is told in the past and present as the journey through madness and suspense keeps us – the readers – wondering. Is this man actually cursed or is he deranged and mentally ill?

The Cursed Man is the first book of Keith Rommel’s Thanatology Series and after reading this one and finding myself so pleased I’m very interested in reading the two others in the Series, The Sinful Man and The Lurking Man. Those who favor big screen chills over the eeriness of a novel can rest comfortably, the cinematic adaptation of The Cursed Man is currently in production.

Don‘t let this one get by you. It’s a genuine page turner.

Order it here.
