Three stories of unspeakable evil make up The Dead Man Volume 1, an action adventure collection full of dark humor, surprising twists, and supernatural terror:

Matthew Cahill, dead and buried in an avalanche, wakes up in a morgue three months later in Face of Evil. But now he sees things no one else can and when his friend goes on a killing spree, he realizes the evil Mr. Dark has a plan for him.

In search of Mr. Dark, Matt finds himself in Heaven, Washington, a tiny hamlet in the Cascade Mountains embroiled in a four-family blood feud in Hell in Heaven. Only Matt can stop the bloodshed, but even he is going to have a hard time figuring out why Mr. Dark brought him here.

Matt believes a madman may hold the key to defeating Mr. Dark and his rotting touch. To find him, Matt must infiltrate a lunatic asylum in Ring of Knives—and his only chance of escaping alive is to face the unspeakable terror deep in the asylum’s woods.

Review:

"I don't like horror novels. I don't much care for the fantasy genre. And buckets of gore put me off. So how come I read two of these books? I'll be honest with you: I was sort of trapped into it (don't ask). And what do you know, I loved them, notwithstanding the above. First of all,, Goldberg and Rabkin are keen observers and fine writers. Exposition, dialogue, plotting, description . . . they're all first-rate: economical, coherent, and convincing. And Mathew Cahill is a genuinely intriguing character. And--to my surprise--darned if the books aren't funny. To put it in a nutshell, I simply couldn't put them down. No, really, I mean it. Literally. Once I started, I read each one through in a single night, which isn't usual for me. And now I'm hooked on the series. My God, what's happening to me? " -Aaron Elkins author of The Worst Thing, Uneasy Relations, and The Dark Place
