A young boy falls in love with his golden-haired brother. A jilted ghost with gallows humor plots the ultimate revenge of the dead. Jackie Traval finds the body of a murdered weather-girl, and for the first time is in love. And an ex-rentboy contemplates (im)mortality high above the seductive sea. In these twelve stories about death, Kirsty Machon writes of the darkness and sunlight, of gender and the flesh. The resonance of earthly and deathly desire are explored through the eyes of the victims, of those left behind, and a phantom victor from the other side.
