One of the most celebrated writers in the history of comics teams up once again with one of the industry's most accomplished artists! Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell once again venture into the world of myth and angels. Constructing and maintaining all of heaven and earth is an immense task, which God has divided up amongst the various ranks and stations of angels. As with any such huge effort, there are bound to be casualties. This unique passion play sheds light on the hands behind creation, as well as one lonely man in Los Angeles who gets to hear the whole story of a most unspeakable crime: a murder in paradise! P. Craig Russell adapts Neil Gaiman's poignant short story with the subtlety and grace which earned him two Eisner Awards for his work on Dark Horse's Ring of the Nibelung series. The reunion of these two legendary comics creators is a guaranteed masterpiece.

Finding this graphic novel was like finding a rare coin amongst a handful of pennies. I have been a fan of Gaiman's since sophomore year of high school and have happily devoured every book, comic, or short story he has ever written. Nothing he has ever written has failed to delight, amaze, and/or frighten me. This graphic novel, Murder Mysteries, was no exception. I had already read the accompanying short story of the same name in Gaiman's short story collection, Smoke and Mirrors, over a year ago when I found this slim volume. The story is a matter of heavenly justice, universal construction, and angels in love. I found the book tucked between an X-Men trade paperback and an Akira collection, bought it immediately and, once I was home, took up residence on my sofa where I read the book, cover-to-cover. Every image on the page was as perfect and precise as I had imagined, in my mind, when I first read the short story. P.Craig Russell's drawings are beautiful and Gaiman's writing floats seamlessly in and out of them like one of the celestial beings in the story. I was overjoyed at finding this book.
