The Viking Funeral: A Shane Scully Novel (Shane Scully Novels) by Stephen J. Riding the Snake by Stephen J. Detective Shane Scully and his wife, Alexa, are an unlikely but intriguing pair. She's not only drop dead gorgeous but also Director of Operations for the LAPD, and no one would call him good looking. It's best said in his own words: ""It's a miracle Alexa ever agreed to marry me. But then, if Julia Roberts could once marry Lyle Lovett, I guess anything is possible. How can you not like him?

Driving along the freeway, Shane Scully glances over and sees Jody Dean, his oldest friend and LAPD colleague, at the wheel of an adjacent car. Why is Scully so surprised? Because it's been two years since Jody committed suicide in the Rampart Division parking lot by blowing his brains out with a service revolver. Shane served as a pallbearer at the funeral. What Scully will discover is that Jody and five other cops who are supposed to be dead are anything but; originally sent deep undercover to bust an extremely violent criminal network, they have become the LAPD's worst nightmare.

The setup goes awry and Shane finds himself looking down at his future wife's body. He is soon driven into the corridors of near-madness and into the bed of an extremely beautiful and utterly ruthless corporate seductress who threatens to destroy his soul.Shane's desperate and deadly undercover journey takes him from the embrace of Alexa and his teenage son, Chooch, to the Caribbean island of Aruba--to the decadence of Columbia's opulent palaces and the desperation of its deadly streets. Sergeant Scully is driven to the psychological brink, his life in the hands of the most dangerous killer he's ever known-his closest childhood friend.

I might give this three and a half stars if pressed.

After watching one of the late Mr. Cannell's shows on latenight TV I decided to look him up on Wikipedia and discovered he had written a number of novels. So I decided to sample this one, since it had a catchy title.

This book is not a piece of literature. It's more like a treatment for a gory action flick. It's not historical fiction, but it's dated, taking place sometime in the early 2000s. The book keeps your attention, but the characterization of all is limited.

There's plenty of evidence of Mr. Cannell's knowledge of police department procedure, but that seems a bit antiquated, too. Nobody even carries cell phones.

These are the things that struck me. The story itself is about a convoluted money laundering plot. I liked the character of the police chief who hails from NYC. Most of the rest aren't too interesting, although they are supposed to be.

All in all, I would call this book mediocre. I wouldn't say it isn't worth reading, but keep your expectations level.

Stephen Cannell, having shown he was adept at writing and creating TV shows, turned to novel writing a few years ago and has produced a number of generally decent mysteries. In his last novel, The Tin Collectors, he introduced his first series character, Shane Scully, who reappears in this book.
One day while driving on the freeway, Shane notices his best friend and fellow cop driving nearby. The only problem is that his friend died three years ago by suicide. Already in trouble with his superiors, Shane knows that reopening this case based on a fleeting glance is dangerous, but he can't let things lie.
This premise, while not completely original, is at least executed well. In fact, the first half of this novel is pretty exciting. Unfortunately, the second half gets muddled with its complex plot involving the parallel market and the various shady characters involved in this market. In addition, Cannell recycles some ideas from his first novel, The Plan, which also deals with childhood friends who wind up being on opposing sides.
The balance of good first half and bad second half is roughly equal, meriting this book an even three stars. If you enjoy Cannell's other works, you should continue with this one, but otherwise, you might want to go elsewhere.

I suppose it had to happen. Stephen Cannell finally wrote a book that failed miserably in living up to our expectations of his story telling ability. The story is plodding and difficult to stay with, although I did finish it just to see if it would get better. Alas, no.
The central characters of Shane Scully and Alexa Hamilton fail to interest...the "Vikings" are an unbelieveable lot of misfits. The "scheme" that they are pursuing of making a killing, both literally and figuratively in the "parallel market" is hard to follow and equally difficult to believe.
The bodies are stacking up like cord wood as you work your way through the book, but you find yourself not caring that much and just waiting for the quite predictable ending. I hope this is the last book of the "Shane Scully genre and that Mr.Cannell can once again take us to more interesting scenarios in the future.

This book was the best book I have ever read. This is the second time I have read it and it just grabs my soul. I have read many, many books that were 5 star but for some reason I don't understand this book affected me deeply. It's just powerful!

I'm a big fan of Stephen J Cannell and his Shane Scully series. Re-read this (after 10 years) and enjoyed it as much as the first time.

I was introduced to the Shane Scully series and started with reading the tin collectors. I immediately took an interest in the Novels and have seen obtained all of the Scullys.
The Viking Funeral is a very gripping read and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Packed with suspense. If you like cop novels in the form of fiction this one makes a great read. Shane and his wife, who is also his boss, are at it again.

One fine and interesting Shane Scully Novel by one of the finest authors this world has been fortunate to have had and I have enjoyed all of Mr. Cannell 's books I have read and I recommend them to anyone who likes super excellent novels.
