RELIC OF DEATH by David Bernstein begins with two mobsters who find a briefcase locked up in an old safe. When they open the case, they see what they think will solve all their problems. As with any cursed object, they end up dead, with the briefcase beginning a journey from one desperate person to another.
Each character sees what they need, but the price is always their life. At the very end, the story circles back around to the beginning. While the story is entertaining, I wish the author had included more of a backstory for the case.
Maybe a sequel could be written for the new Keeper, and offer readers the origin of the briefcase.
