    When a dead body is found at the work camp, The skull mantra book investigates. The plot was good, the characterization done well, and the writing kept me interested until I finished. In his original mutant form Hioka closely resembles the designs of Kamen Riders ZO and J, and grows his antennas after a battle with Syndicate grunts; his upgraded form is based heavily on the designs of Kamen Rider 1, Hongo TakeshiHioka's Kamen Rider rides a motorcycle very much like the original Cyclone motorcycle, possesses a scarf around his neck, and his head appears to be a helmet instead of physically mutating into the grasshopper head. Main article: List of The Skull Man manga chapters The manga is a remake of the original manga. Very highly recommended.

    At times, the detail became overwhelming. Within a day or so there is a murder suspect brought The skull mantra book and imprisoned, but it is a monk who for reasons I won't say, could not have possibly been the killer. Most of the other prisoners are Tibetan monks incarcerated for resisting the invasion, and Shan has learned a deep reverence for the monks and their ways. Yet although you are left with a deep sympathy and anger, Pattison leaves you with a sense of hope in the Tibetans' struggle for autonomy. Her books mainly revolved around peoples who were supposed to be from a different planet than the one he lived on.

    I would recommend it if you have interest in any of those subjects. The tensions boil over and the monks threaten to stop working which will result in unnecessary bloodshed. Believe me, this author kept my attention! The corpse is missing its head and is dressed in American clothes.
