Death explains the distinction between what people think about war—and about death—and the reality. To Death, war does not serve as a friend but an employer, and a demanding one at that. Death does not have a preference whether people live or die, he just deals with the aftermath—the gathering of souls—and that task multiplies during war. The View from a Hearse is Joe’s simple, helpful meditation on death and grieving. He wrote it for those facing the death of a loved one, those still in the throes of grief, and for those preparing to die.

Erasing Death: The Science That is Rewriting the Boundaries Between Life and Death by Sam Parnia, M.D. For those who are interested in pondering that line between death and irreversible death, this book by Sam Parnia, M.D., who focuses on resuscitation medicine, is a compelling read, particularly in its exploration of ways that we have been able to prolong the period when cell death becomes. As for the title of the movie itself, "A View To A Kill" is an abridged title derived from the Ian Fleming short story "From A View To A Kill". In , The "London Daily News" published an original Ian Fleming short story (conceived as a plot for an abandoned James Bond TV show) called "Murder Before Breakfast".

Death himself is the narrator of The Book Thief, and the setting is Nazi Germany during World War II, so there is a constant feeling of danger and suspense in the narrator also reveals the fates of most of the characters beforehand, particularly the details of their deaths. This creates a different kind of suspense, where the reader knows some of the story's end but still wants to. Naked in Death was the first of J.D. Robb’s “In Death” series, published in It wasn’t much of a hit back then, though received acclaim from the Gothic Journal. The term they used was “a unique blend of hardcore police drama, science fiction and passionate romance”. That is one heck of a review to receive for a first book.
