Pre-OrderTHE LONG-AWAITED TRANSLATION OF JAPAN’S BEST MYSTERY
"where the bonds of family continue even after death."
In the midst of the 1980s, an unexplained phenomenon has arisen to
terrify the United States: the dead are returning to life. In this chaos
and confusion, a family of funeral directors in a small town in New
England is locked in a struggle of succession to control the family
business. When several relatives mysteriously die and then resurrect,
the youngest member of the eccentric lot, a punk-rock teenager
named Grin, must take the lead and solve the case. Classic dilemmas
of mystery, from hidden motives to locked rooms, are given a ghoulish
twist when the dead refuse to stay deceased for long. What begins as a
puzzling mystery soon transforms into much more, with action,
suspense, and brain-tickling philosophizing on questions of life and
death. Aided by his companions and using his prodigious wits, will Grin
be able to deduce the answers to this most unusual mystery?
