Los Angeles PI Dexter Graves was pretty sure his life ended back in 1950, after a mysterious femme fatale shot him through the head. When Graves involuntarily rises from his grave sixty years later, he finds himself drawn to freelance sorceress Lia Flores, who introduces him to an underworld he never could've imagined. Lia sets out to discover the meaning behind Graves' unexpected intrusion into her enchanted life, but neither the witchgirl nor the skeletal detective has any idea they're being set up by an old-school player on the LA scene: mobster/monster Mickey Hardface, also known as Mictlantecuhtli, the ambitious king of the Aztec realm of the dead.
Funny and fast-paced, this genre-bending love letter to the City of Angels blends surreal magical fantasy with the narrative drive of a taut crime story. Epic in scope and rooted in California history, GRAVES' END adds a new chapter to the mythology of the post-Halloween holiday known as el Dia de los Muertos--the Day of the Dead.
