A hardboiled horror novel featuring two-fisted occult detective, Cal McDonald — a gumshoe with no love for ghosts and ghouls alike. Featuring illustrations by award-winning artist Ashley Wood, this high-caliber conjuring of classic detective fiction, horror, and comedy finds McDonald (a tough-as-nails private dick in the same vein as Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe) stumbling on a mystery in the nation's capital, where people are dropping dead all over the place — with all the brain matter missing from their skulls! What follows makes this novel a monster read.
