Description

The corpses swayed where they stood, their bony arms outstretched before them and tattered sleeves hanging limply in the foggy air. Their sunken eyes bored into mine. I was surrounded. . . . Barnaby Grimes is a tick-tock lad, running errands in his city and high-stacking around the rooftops in search of new mysteries to solve. Gangland funerals and diving expeditions are hazardous enough, but when the graveyards begin to give up their dead, Barnaby is faced with his deadliest challenge yet.
