Overview

"Tom Anders is a man going through the motions. Since the recent death of his wife, Janie, he listlessly teaches his folklore classes at Armfield University and makes a halfhearted pursuit of his urban legends research. All that changes when Janie returns from the dead one fine spring day for a serious heart to heart:

She put her left hand flat on the table. Tom recognized the wedding ring. Janie had been buried wearing it. "You didn't ask the question, but you do want it answered," she said. "Touch me."

Janie is real, Janie is back, and she’s not alone. All over the town of Canemill, the dead are rising. Not as shambling corpses or gossamer ghosts, but as solid, normal-seeming people with debts to collect, desires to realize, and old scores to settle. When Janie’s business with him is done, Tom follows her back to the cemetery and finds the cause of the dead’s restlessness—a creature, not human, but with the appearance of a young woman, a creature that the street people have named Graveyard Mariah. Something about her is maddeningly familiar, as is the red scarf she wears. Tom knows he’s seen both before, but unless he makes the connection, and soon, the dead will overwhelm the living all over the world, and Canemill will only be the first to go."
