"A very disturbing read. McMahon seems intent on tearing down the walls between the living and the dead."
Christopher Fowler


Thomas Usher has a terrible gift. Following a car crash in which his wife and daughter are killed, he can see the recently departed, and it's not usually a pretty sight.

When he is called to investigate the violent death of the daughter of a prominent local gangster, Usher's world is torn apart once more. For the barriers between this world and the next are not as immutable as once he believed.

Gary McMahon's short fiction has appeared in numerous acclaimed magazines and anthologies in the UK and US and has been reprinted in yearly "Best of" collections. He is the multiple-award-nominated author of the novellas Rough Cut and All Your Gods Are Dead; the collections Dirty Prayers and How to Make Monsters and Pieces of Midnight; and the novels Rain Dogs and Hungry Hearts. He has been nominated for seven different British Fantasy Awards as both author and editor.
