Zombies, werewolves, vampires, rival Bowie tribute bands, and conjoined twin mobsters…it's all in a day's work for Ace Stubble, a gritty lawyer whose clients are the undead and paranormal.
Ace should have learned a long time ago that "easy" jobs are never that easy, but how could this one go wrong? All he needs to do is find the right re-animator to put some life back into the dead man's hand that his friend Pixel Patterson has acquired. There could be a good deal of money in it–and it doesn't hurt that Pixel is easy on the eyes.
Unfortunately, re-animators aren't all that cooperative in this city, and before long Ace is calling in favors that lead to other favors. When a van-load of zombies goes missing, Ace realizes there's more to the dead man's hand than he'd thought, and there are people far more dangerous than Pixel Patterson trying to unlock the hand's secrets. But now it's too late for Ace to back out of the deal, and he has to rely on more than favors if he's going to come out of this one still in one piece.
