- From John Heffernan (Snakes on a Plane) comes a dark tale of voodoo and myth, the world of the bayou and the world beyond.

mortuaries, and coroners offices across the Deep South, Graves chauffeurs hundreds of bodies to their final resting places. But now, Alabaster must cover the distance from Shreveport to New Orleans to retrieve the remains of Mose
Freeman, renown voodoo priest, with Freeman's sultry granddaughter riding shotgun. What he doesn't know is that he's being pursued by a resurrectionist named Fallow, a necromancer who gets his power from stealing body parts... and for whom the corpse of Mose Freeman would be the ultimate prize!
