Alister Kunkle believes death is in love with him.  A simple smile from friend or stranger is all it takes to encourage death to kill.
      With his family deceased and a path of destruction behind him, Alister sits inside a mental institution, sworn to silence and separated from the rest of the world, haunted by his inability to escape death’s preferential treatment.
      But when a beautiful psychologist arrives at the institution and starts offering him care, Alister braces himself for more killings.  When none follow, he tries to figure out whether he truly is insane or if death has finally come to him in the form of a woman.


The Story Behind This Book
Keith Rommel delves much deeper than simple superstition in the “The Cursed Man”, a fast-paced novel of suspense injected with enough horror to keep you on the edge of your seat. Rommel takes you deep within the human psyche, and once you get inside, it’s impossible to get out. “There’s a part in the book that is disturbing to me,” said Rommel. “It is the moment in the book where you come to understand what Alister (hero) is really going through and why. The why is based off of a true event that is close to my family, and that is what inspired me to write The Cursed Man."
