Meet the Ushers. The parents, Ted and Biddy. Grandma Martha. The three kids, William, Amy and Sam. Just a normal, middle-class family gathered around the table on Christmas Day. Until they start dying. Violent deaths. One by one. Is there a curse on their house, as a recently unearthed history of witchcraft in the area would suggest? Or has one member of the Usher clan declared open season on the rest? As secrets and resentments boil to the surface, it becomes clear that more than one Usher has a motive for killing off the others. But in the end, the truth turns out to be far more shocking than anyone in this ill-fated family could have imagined.

Denise Mina is the author of Deception, the Garnethill trilogy, and Still Midnight. She has worked in healthcare and taught criminology and criminal law. She lives in Scotland. Antonio Fuso is an Italian left-handed comic book artist unconditionally acclaimed by his family, his girlfriend and some of his friends... his cat hates him.From Booklist:
Award-winning Scottish crime-novelist Mina (Still Midnight, 2010) has written comics before (Hellblazer), but this is her first stand-alone graphic novel. It’s about a family, the Ushers, who put the dys in dysfunctional: father Ted is ineffectual, mother Biddy is unfaithful, daughter Amy rages against unfairness, son William is a heroin addict, grandmother Martha is unloved, and no one will let the other son, Sam, forget he was adopted. The bickering is bearable—until a murder in the downstairs flat creates a hole, literally, at the center of this house of Usher. Paranormal suggestions and a mounting sense of dread will make readers wonder whether this mystery story has a supernatural solution; both the premise and Fuso’s kinetic black-and-white art suggest an unearthed gem from the EC Comics vault. But it’s Mina’s plotting and pacing that kick this into high gear. “It’s a war, family life,” says one of the characters, and if this family feud is fatal, it’s awfully entertaining, too. --Keir Graff
