Rick Evans doesn’t believe in ghosts. Everything changes when he learns, too late, to be careful about what he invites into the world of the living. Creatures from the netherworld are not always so easy to uninvite. He is soon flung into a labyrinth of family secrets, deceit, and a century-old mystery leading to something crawling out of an open grave in a moonlit cemetery, culminating in an encounter with the resurrected dead.
“I loved every word of Grave Events, and I’m betting you will too. This one is a must read!” — Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Dog Days and Plague of the Undead
