    1. Warning for those of you that don't have stomachs of steel. This could get messy.The Rest Stop Dentist aka Dane Peters is executed before his mother's eyes. She is the only person alive that gives a damn about him. After all he did kill all those people.Actually, he killed them and left trails of their teeth like Hansel and Gretel.After Dane's death Ella (Mama) returns to her home that she mortgaged to the hilt so that she could follow all the trials for her son's murders. Then we realize that D [...]


    2. Bah! I'm desperately searching for reasons not to give this book 5 stars because I'm GR friends with the author. And you know what? I just can't find any. Life After Dane is a very good book.Excuses never made were lies never told, I always said.The story centers Ella Peters, the mother of Dane Peters, also known as the Rest Stop Dentist. The serial killer is put to death, and Ella starts hallucinating about her dead son. The fact that she is shunned and harassed by those around does little help [...]


    3. This book grabbed me by the spectacles and held me captive for five days. I still had to follow my normal work routine, but as soon as I was finished each day, the book had its vice-like grip on me once again. In a whirlwind of events, I witnessed the brutal childhood of Dane, who grew up to become the Rest Stop Dentist. A serial killer, Dane was ultimately caught and executed, but that is just the beginning of the story. Because Dane comes back. He has a score to settle with his mother, and he' [...]


    4. Well, I guess I have to say I've already read the book in order to rate it. I guess I lied, but I'm thinking that this rating will remainif my stomach holds out.I've never started a review before I've finished the book, but I have to give this book5* for what I've read so fara HORROR of a book, with a very well written protagonist. She is just so real.Ok done, and I am impressed!! Edward Lorn has proven to me that he can give his readers nightmares, while at the same time tugging on their heart- [...]


    5. This is the story of the Rest Stop Dentist killer and how he came into being. Hard to decide who the biggest monster is in this tale of a life gone wrong. Lorn's dark humor is lurking around every corner toothily leering at us. The lines about the mustard/muster are priceless. I will be looking with suspicion at the next individual I hear cracking his knuckles. Nice touch. The teeth . . . the teeth. The horror.


    6. What starts out as a mother watching the execution of her only son--a convicted serial murderer--quickly morphs into depths of emotional upheaval, and guilt that take root in your very core! Through Edward Lorn's incredible skill, we are taken on a tumultuous journey , where the past takes turns tellings its tale, between the scenes of the present proceedings.I can't believe I'm saying this, but there are some scenes so disturbing to read, that I actually hoped for some form of redemption or ven [...]


    7. Horrible horrible horrible.Such a horrible mother. And don't even get me started on the father!This is a story about the mother of an executed serial killer Dane Peters, the so-called "Rest Stop Dentist". It is only after his death that things start to spiral out of control for Ella. Cause Dane's poor soul can't find the way to his final resting place and starts to haunt his Momma.I put off reading this book, cause I was a teeny tiny bit afraid of the horror. But once I started, it sucked me rig [...]


    8. Life After Dane by Edward LornBLURB FROM COVER: A mother’s love is undying… and so is Dane. After the state of Arkansas executes serial killer Dane Peters, the Rest Stop Dentist, his mother discovers that life is darker and more dangerous than she ever expected. The driving force behind his ghostly return lies buried in his family’s dark past. As Ella desperately seeks a way to lay her son’s troubled soul to rest, she comes face to face with her own failings. If Ella cannot learn why her [...]


    9. This is my second story by Edward Lorn and just like when reading Bay's End I was amazed by how good he writes. Dialog rings true, references and analogies work and the flow of the narrative is close to perfect. English not being my first language, this is highly appreciated and not always the case (and don't be fooled into believing it's anything "simple" about Lorn's language - oversimplifying can spoil the reading experience in itself - but it's rather so that nothing is awkward or cumbersome [...]


    10. “He’s not a monster. He’s my son.” Keep telling yourself that, lady. You helped make him that way. No worries though, the teeth will lead you home. Unfortunately for you…it may be Dane’s house now. FugD is classic E. Fast moving and brutal. I should have been able to see the ending coming, but I didn’t. That is a testament to Lorn’s ability to keep you off balance and entirely engaged in the story from beginning to end. Very well done. Emotionally violent and disturbing. 5 Stars [...]


    11. Some books grab me in the first few chapters or pages but this one had me in a couple sentences and held me until the end. My favorite so far from Mr. Lorn. Check it out.


    12. A novel that argues that sometimes a steady, life-long diet of Jesus doesn't let you off the hook for raising a serial killer. Life After Dane is a tale of supernatural revenge that takes the time to develop its characters: there's the chain-smoking Ella who mistakes cowardice for Christian piousness; her sadistic oaf of a husband, Phillip; and their bright-eyed baby boy, Dane, who grows up to be a demented tooth fairy of sorts, in life and after death. Following the execution of her son, Ella i [...]


    13. The start of this story sees the state of Arkansas execute serial killer Dane Peters, nicknamed the Rest Stop Dentist for the brutal way he loved to remove his victim’s teeth and leave a trail of them leading to the body. The story is told in first person through the eyes of Dane’s Mother, Ella and this is an extremely compelling tale, partly of abuse, the horrific repercussions and how easy it is to look the other way.Edward Lorn again uses multiple time lines to tell a horror story that ef [...]


    14. Edit #1: I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.What a terribly gruesome, horrifying ride into the broken psyche of a young man who grew up into a serial killer, as well as the mind of his mother who sat back and watched it happen.Character development in this book is simply outstanding. Ed Lorn is an outstanding writer, and his abilities really shine in this book. Ella, mother of the serial killer known as the “Rest Stop Dentist”, is the profoundly flawed narrator w [...]


    15. Let's just get this bit of business out of the way up front: Edward Lorn is one hell of a writer.And Life After Dane is one hell of a book.Keeping a reader engaged for the entire duration of a novel featuring a protagonist so unsympathetic (presented in first person, no less) would be a herculean task for even the most accomplished author, but Lorn pulls the trick off with panache. Ella, mother of the infamous and recently deceased serial killer Dane, stood idly by during his entire childhood wh [...]


    16. Great writing, scary, witty, superb. It was imposible to leave it before I finish with it completelyI've had the pleasure of reading some of Lorn's books since January, and I believe that, without a doubt he's the closest indie writer to Stephen King's grandeur.I am not going to go over the plot in detail since so many reviewers have already done so, and anyway I'm not a great storyteller! Edward Lorn starts out strong in 'Life After Dane' telling the story of a serial killer nicknamed Rest Stop [...]


    17. 4.5 freaking intense stars. Fantastic narration ! Get this on audio folks, you will love it.Now for a review. How am I supposed to review this Mr. Lorn ? If I talk about any of the parts it will open a window into the delicious wickedness that these pages slowly revealed in a soul screaming process that was always slightly out of reach. The answers that are there, but they aren't. Blurred lines with clattering teeth kidnapped my dreams and turned them to suspense filled nightmares. One word kept [...]


    18. Lorn is yet to disappoint and I'm a completist by nature. Serial killers aren't born it seems, they are made, usually by spectacularly crappy parenting. This is certainly the case here, the story told from a perspective of a mother (guilty of not heeding Edmund Burke's warning and doing nothing thus allowing evil to triumph), who ends up haunted both literally and figuratively by the memories and what they created. Honestly though, the supernatural/horror aspect of it seemed secondary, the best [...]


    19. 11/11/14: It's on sale for $0.99 today, and will then start slowly making it's way back to the $5.99 price. This one is worth more than $0.99. Go getcha some Ed Lorn!!!!Actual rating: 3.75 stars. No spoilers!Review:I will seriously never be able to look at dentists the same way after reading this book. We are immediately introduced to Dane, through the eyes of Ella, his mother. I developed a soft aching spot for Ella pretty early on. Thinking of what she must have gone through watching Dane go t [...]


    20. 4.5 stars! Rounded up because of the great ending I didn't see coming!Lorn's tale starts as a mother watches her serial killer son executed for a string of heinous murders carried out in the years prior. Lorn expertly creates a rather unsympathetic character to root for, as her journey turns from the navigation of grief over her son's death into a wild ride through supernatural territory. The story alternates between flashbacks of a Dane's abusive childhood from Ella's point of view and the pres [...]


    21. Characters are far more interesting to me than the stories they might be in. A good character can make any book worth reading, so long as sloppy writing doesn't get in the way. When I read a story told in first person, a character's voice is even more important to me. Without a good cadence and personality, a first person narrator can completely destroy a good story.Edward Lorn's "Life After Dane" has a compelling, empathetic first person narrator that has one hell of a voice. Ella Peters is an [...]


    22. I'm going to do it. I swear to God. I'm going to write an honest review of an author I follow on . *cracks knuckles* I follow and enjoy Edward Lorn's review's here on so I have been extremely curious to check out some of his writing. He is always sharp, witty, and entertaining so I had high hopes for this short thriller. My biggest complaint with this is, I wanted more. I really enjoyed this story and found it original, gripping, and very disturbing. The portrayal of child abuse and violence wa [...]


    23. Poor Ella Peters. A mother should never have to mourn the loss of her child. It's a nightmare that no parent on Earth wants to live through. For Ella though, it's so much worse than that. Not only is her child gone, he died a monster. A killer. Dane Peters, the Rest Stop Dentist. A criminal who has been laid to rest. Or has he?What is most heartbreaking about this story is that Dane wasn't born this way, he was made. Edward Lorn weaves a tale around the violent abuse of a young child, and the mo [...]


    24. *Book source ~ Many thanks to Red Adept for providing a review copy. Please see disclaimer page on my blog.Dane Peters was a serial killer known as the Rest Stop Dentist. Having killed 42 people he was finally caught, tried and sentenced to death. His mother, Ella, watched the execution of her only child then went back to her house in Colorado and attempted to move on. Life after Dane wasn’t easy for the mother of a serial killer, but it got even harder when Ella started seeing and hearing her [...]


    25. I’ve read several of Edward’s books and I have to say Life After Dane is his best work yet.I would call it a psychological thriller and horror story. But it’s more than that. You could also call it a ghost story but it isn’t a house that’s haunted.They say a serial killer can be born one or made into one. I’m not sure which it was for Dane, but he was prolific, killing 42 people. His moniker, The Rest Stop Dentist, was earned because he stalked and killed his victims at rest stops an [...]


    26. You know when you're reading a book and by the time you get to the end, everything is wrapped up all beautifully in a neat little package, almost a "happily ever after thing"? Yeah, that was what I thought was happening with this book and I have to admit I was a little cheesed off about it cause this book is amazing - like AMAZING - like I have only four books that I've read this year that I can HONESTLY say I would give more than 5 stars to if I could and this is one of them, so when it seemed [...]


    27. Dane Peters is a serial killer that is being executed by the state of Arkansas for his crimes. He was dubbed The Rest Stop Dentist due to the fact that all of his victims had their teeth removed before their death. Dane through all his trials and interviews almost bragged of what he'd done and said it made him happy. Ella is Dane's mother, she blames herself for Dane's crimes since she stood by while Dane was growing up as his father beat and punished him being scared for her own well being. She [...]


    28. The author gifted me with a copy of this book. That has not compromised my ability to write an honest and critical review of this book.2/2 - At the end of chapter two and I already feel like committing bloody violence. I was hoping, but knew it wasn't going to happen due to her earlier attempt to placate Phil, that Ella would pick up that damn broomstick and ram it down his throat. That kind of man, just makes me so angry I want to hit something IRL.I liked the little nod to the MasterCard ads, [...]


    29. Dane, known as the Rest Stop Dentist, was sentenced to death and executed for the deaths of 42 people. Dane's mother, Ella, is dealing with the fallout of being the mom of a serial killer.Ella, after returning home from following her son's trial progress in many different cities for the crimes he committed, tries to attend a church meeting when she's turned away. People don't know what to make of her and want to keep her at arm's length, blaming her for her son's deeds. How could she not know wh [...]


    30. I suppose the real problem I had with this story is that I read it immediately after the amazing "The Heart's Invisible Furies" by John Boyne which was a literary tour de force. To step down from that high and to read what is no more than an average tale is a bit of a disappointment. Serial Killer Dane Peters known as the Rest Stop Dentist has just been executed and his mother Ella May, who deeply loved her son, is trying to understand why his ghost will not leave her in peace. She starts on a j [...]
