I disagree with Whemmer "billyjames". What makes Randall Silvis' writing so special is that unlike many other authors, he doesn't write the same storyline for the same genre over and over. Instead, Silvis is a masterful storyteller who is capable of writing for numerous genres with his lyrical language and magnificent storytelling. His writing is fresh, new, and different with each story he delivers. I enjoyed Mundomuerto because it is yet another example of how Silvis' storytelling captivates the reader and leaves him or her with a book they can't put down. It was no surprise to me why Mundomuerto was rated as one of the ten best books of the year by [...]! It's a wonderfully written story and I congratulate Silvis on another job well done!

After reading reading Silvis's two terrific Edgar Allen Poe thrillers, I was anticipating a great read. Oops! not Silvis's genre, I guess. The writing and the characters were flat. Real Writing 101 stuff.
Read the Edgar Allen Poe thrillers, then move on. That's my advice.
