The Posthumous Man

The Posthumous Man

by Jake Hinkson




When Elliot Stilling killed himself, he thought his troubles were over. Then the ER doctors revived him. It's infatuation at first sight when he meets his nurse, Felicia Vogan, a lost soul with a "weakness for sad sacks and losers." She helps Elliot escape from the hospital, but once outside she leads him straight to a gang planning a million-dollar heist. Does Felicia really want Elliot to protect her from the outfit's psychotic leader, Stan the Man? Or is she just setting him up to take the hard fall? By the time this long night of deceit and murder is over, Elliot will have to finally face himself and come to terms with his own dark past.
