About this ebook

When the Change came, people stopped aging, the dead rose from their graves, it started raining and it’s been raining ever since. But a guy's still got to make a living doesn't he?

MURDER IS STILL MURDER IN GREASETOWN - A dead lawyer enters the office of Wildclown Investigations and hires the detective to find his killer. Wildclown and his dead sidekick Elmo soon find themselves entangled in a battle for control of a secret that offers either hope or doom for humanity. WHEN GRAVEYARDS YAWN takes the reader to a unique setting that mixes gothic horror with the two-fisted pragmatism of a hard-boiled detective novel.

The piece that changed my relationship with E-pubs, before I read this book I swore I would never pay for an e-book (oh how I hate paying for stuff I cannot hold in my hands), but this little piece left me wanting more so bad . About the book, Tommy Wildclown the main character is a quirky character if there is one, flawed and slowly losing grip on a reality no one would really want to keep its grip on, he evolves with his "zombie" sidekick Elmo trough a world where conspiracies seem to be at every corner and it makes for a story which is sometimes funny, sometimes scary but always captivating.

One of the best, and yet oddest, hard-boiled tales I've ever read. Very well written and definitely worth the read.
