Overview

On the day Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated JFK in Dallas, illusionist Keane Crowley was preparing for a performance destined to change the course of his burgeoning career. And then, suddenly, he was dead, too.

More than thirty years later, teenager Casper Cole learns the truth about Keane Crowley’s mysterious life and death when he is taught the secret art of shuffling: the ability to use a deck of playing cards to time-travel. During his time-traveling expeditions to the past—which include face-to-face encounters with both Abraham Lincoln and Lee Harvey Oswald, as well as a harrowing escape from the battle of Gettysburg—Casper comes to realize that it was Crowley’s death, and not Kennedy’s, that changed the course of human history on November 22, 1963.

Reporter Finn Avery, meanwhile, stumbles upon Crowley’s story while working for a ragtag community newspaper, and, in her quest to learn more about him, finds herself confronting bludgeoned bodies, unmarked mass graves, and an enigmatic man who claims to be Crowley himself—alive and seemingly immortal some thirty-four years after his alleged death.

Zigzagging through more than one hundred years of American history, Graveyard Assassins challenges the notion of what it means to be alive when humanity’s every recorded memory can be revisited in the space between two playing cards.
