Overview

It is the year 1850. Santos Vega, a hard working mayor, is left murdered, hanging on a tree on the eve of All Saints' Day by a sadistic cult leader known as "The Coyote." The Coyote and his evil Witch sister, along with their followers have been killing and enslaving people across the New Mexico territories.

With Santos dead, and the madman in control, the cult makes plans for more converts using the dark magic of The Witch to aid their sinister cause during the town's celebration of Día de los Muertos.

Death itself however has plans for this recently deceased mayor. The Lady of Shadows, Santa Muerta, allows Santos to return from the land of the dead with the supernatural powers of the Day of The Dead. He is given forty-eight hours to save his wife, and the people of his village from the dark cult.

He returns to the land of the living to discover he is human by day but dies and transforms at moon's first light to become the living dead. His face changes to a decorated skull and his body becomes cold and pale like a corpse. Santos must free his people and destroy The Coyote, The Witch and their followers by the end of All Souls' Day and stop their horrors from spreading.

Armed with twin Walker Colts, a heart of vengeance and the power of Día de los Muertos, the last thing these evil men will see before they are sent to hell is his skull-like face.

Meet the Author

Mark Tarrant is a Loco Gringo who loves the history of the west, and the unexplained - monsters, rifles, cowboys, vampires, UFOs and things that go bump in the night.

Writing, creating and thinking of new ways to tell stories, he finds himself star gazing at the evening skies in New Mexico, smoking a good cigar and listening to classical Spanish guitar... or Pantera depending on the story he has running through his skull.

A recent transplant to the southwest, he enjoys taking in the cultures and historic sites here in New Mexico. He has become addicted to green chile and puts it on everything. A big fan of Clint Eastwood films and comic books with Stephen King, Robert E Howard and Phillip K Dick as his influencers.

He writes smash 'em up adventures for fun and entertainment. He enjoys time with his wife and daughter and hanging out with other creative types whether it's on the set being an extra in films and TV or hanging out at the local comic shop talking to fellow writers and artists.
Mark enjoys motivating others to write, draw and create. He is the last person to hold back his opinion, but the first person in line for seconds at a barbeque.

Anything else? Oh wait he's got another wild idea for a story... time for a cigar amigos!
