Publisher's Summary

Matthew Cahill is a simple man leading a quiet life... until he is tragically killed in an avalanche at a ski resort. Three months later his corpse is found and sent to the morgue - but then something inexplicable happens. He wakes up. Now he can see evil... as a festering rot that eats people alive from the inside out.
And he can see Mr. Dark, the horrific figure who gleefully spreads it like a plague... and whois the only one who can tell Matt whether he is still a man... or the walking dead.For Matt, each day is a journey into a supernatural world he knows nothing about... a quest for the answers to who he is and what he has become... and a bloody fight to save us, and his soul, from the clutches of pure evil.
Here are the first three unforgettable novels in Lee Goldberg & William Rabkin’s The Dead Man– Face of Evil, Ring of Knives, and Hell in Heaven – a horrifying new series that Post-Modern Pulps hails as “a direct spiritual descendant of the sorts of awesome pulp action adventure tales that the greats like Robert E. Howard loved to write!”

I am not sure why this is buried so far in the back of the horror section? It is actually very well written, exciting and kind of Twilight Zone like. Our main character dies, but comes back to life. He sees evil in the faces of others. The evil faces appear to him to be rotting and festering with maggots. There are three stories all staring the same character. He is in a different location for each. In one he is in a mental hospital and in another he is in an isolated town with lots paranormal things happening. If your a paranormal fan, you want to give this a shot. I loved the first story, the second story was only above average and I really liked the last story.

Narrator does an excellent job.

- Jim "The Impatient" "My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books."

Interesting connected short horror stories...

When the body was first found in the snow, I kept waiting for it to pop up and bite/ attack/ eat somebody! (I had to share that;)
The stories don't have a ton of gore or monsters, but a supernatural foundation, and instead rely upon a mix of suspense and realistic fears / scary situations to create tension and "horror". Imagine seeing psychosis and evil represented as rot and decay in the people around you! Imagine a mental hospital where psychos and predator employees run the show - scary stuff. The third story was not as good as the first two, but I will still purchase volume 2.
Narration is very good, especially Luke Daniels who also does the Iron Druid Chronicles.
