I’d never heard of Michael Kimball until I saw his book Undone hiding next to the Stephen King books in my local bookstore. I picked it up, had a glance through it, and noticed a blurb written by Stephen King.

I’d never heard of Michael Kimball until I saw his book Undone hiding next to the Stephen King books in my local bookstore. He says some very positive things about the book and one of the words he uses is ‘moving. Now that I’ve read the book and am reading the words on the back cover for a second time, ‘moving’ is the word that stands out the most. Undone is an extremely moving book. It is also a very clever book with enough surprises and twist and turns in the tale to keep readers hooked all the way to the.

Bobby and Noel are planning the scam of the century-a metaculously crafted.

Great condition!

This guy must walk Stephen King's pets, or clean his chimneys, or drive him to the airport or something to have gotten such a good jacket blurb from him. Cardboard characters, silly plot, too many gimmicks, cliche cariacature characters. Omit.

Sal Erickson is awakened in the middle of the night by Bobby Swift, his lifelong friend. Bobby convinces Sal to take a walk by the river behind his house, where he begins to talk about their friendship. Bobby asks Sal who he trusts, completely, implicitly. Sal answers, "Myself." The conversation ends abruptly. Bobby dies suddenly the next day, leaving Sal to reflect on the strange conversation, little realizing that he will soon be forced to answer Bobby's question in order to save his own life.

You see, Bobby has been keeping secrets from Sal. Eight years ago, Bobby fraudulently obtained an illegal three million dollar business loan. A year later, he declared bankruptcy and defaulted on the loan. But Bobby didn't spend the money--he stashed it in a bank in the Cayman Islands. To get their hands on the money, he, his sultry wife, Noel, and the town undertaker, Elliot Wicker, concoct an elaborate scheme to fake his death. It seemed foolproof, if only he could trust his co-conspirators...

Undone is a solid tale of suspense, very much in the tradition of Double Indemnity or Body Heat. The reader, hip to most of what's going on, is forced to watch helplessly as Sal, a very likable protagonist, is sucked further into the vortex in each succeeding chapter. Kimball keeps the action intimate and unfurls his plot at a leisurely pace, increasing the reader's anxiety and frustration.

The novel contains a variety of pleasures, but the greatest is Kimball's rendering of the characters who inhabit the small town of Gravity, Maine. Like Stephen King (apparently a potent force in Kimball's career), Kimball really makes you care about the people who populate his novel. From Alston Bouchard, the Columbo-like town constable, to the less than savory Jerry Royal, Undone is full of memorable characters who threaten to take over the book at any given moment.

Maine writer Kimball's dark and riveting second novel is pure noir.

Bobby Swift has come up with the perfect plan to get his hands on the millions he's scammed from the government. He'll fake his death, his wife will dig him up, and off they'll go to the Cayman's.

But Noel Swift has a different plan. Hers doesn't involve Bobby.

Enter Sal Erickson, Bobby's best friend, and an earnest family man with a demon - alcohol. Sal thinks he's beaten it, but Bobby's sudden death has unnerved him. With a little nudge from Noel he takes a plunge that costs him his job and his marriage - and gains him Noel.

But strange things are happening in this small Maine town. The undertaker who schemed with Bobby is found dead in the grave and Bobby's coffin is empty.

Did Bobby escape? Is he watching Noel and Sal, biding his time for revenge?

Kimball ratchets up the psychological tension with terse byplay between the characters, all nurturing their own agendas, except for the hapless Sal and the canny town constable whose contributions are dismissed by the Staties.

And when the tension threatens to flag, Kimball pours on the action, raising the stakes with the knowledge that some people will go to any lengths, no matter how horrific, to get what they want.

Kimball's writing is charged with atmosphere and tension and his pacing is electric, right up the to explosive ending. A winner.

Imagine a combination of "The Premature Burial," "Double Indemnity," "The Postman Always Rings Twice" and "Body Heat"..that's what you get in this incredibly good thriller. Michael Kimball weaves a complex plot of betrayal, seduction, incest, murder and blackmail, and does so with such finesse one can hardly believe what they're reading.
Bobby Swift and his deliciously gorgeous wife, Noel, have a perfect plan: fake his death, bury him, dig him up and off they go to the Cayman Islands to spend the two million dollars he extorted from one of his associates. Add a wizened and weasly mortician named Wicker and you have a seemingly perfect plan. Enter Sal Erickson, Bobby's best friend, who becomes embroiled in the plot in the most despicable of ways. He's an alcoholic, who has tried to reform, but alas, can't stay away from the bottle. Sal is so bad that on many occasions, he has gotten so drunk that he can't remember what he did...hint, hint. Add his wife's sex-crazed brother, Jerry Royal; a couple of cops and detectives; Sal's wife who harbors a dark secret; and all hell breaks loose. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, Kimball adds another twist that keeps you guessing.
A tense, compelling and quite enjoyable thriller.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
