The newest release from my good friend Craig. He's a writer beyond my talents so please take the time to check out his work. You can buy it here in the UK or US
The dead rise, and only the dead can rock them back to sleep...but sometimes it falls to the living to do what the dead cannot.
Elton Burlock's done his time. Twenty-six years for a terrible murder. Some of those years were hard, some easy. On the outside, he takes the only job he can find - the custodian of a local cemetery. A simple job, keeping the grass tidy...giving the dead a haircut.
But there are three black angels in the cemetery: a little girl's ghost that roams the night...and two women, one a vision in white, one a nightmare in black.
When the killing starts, who can rock the restless dead back to sleep? Who but Elton? Elton, custodian of the dead, but the gatekeeper, too. The keeper of this world and the next.
The dead are awake. The little girl is free of the earth. But there are no lullabies for the dead and if he's going to live, Elton's going to have to give her what she wants.
Then, maybe, he can find peace for them both - in the grave or out.
"With A Stranger’s Grave, Saunders has written a truly dark, atmospheric and character driven tale, packed with page-turning mystery, sorrow, and a jaw-dropping reveal that will leave readers haunted long after they’ve gone to bed." —David Bernstein, author of Machines of the Dead and Amongst the Dead
