Welcome to The Waiting Mortuary where embalming is free whether you're dead or alive.

Bash Trawler wants to find an easy summer job so he can get back to partying with his friends. When he discovers an advertisement in the local paper for night watch at a nearby funeral home he jumps at the chance to make quick money. But staying up all night watching corpses for an eccentric war vet turns into something out of his worst nightmares.

Casey McClair wants to make the tennis team. Popularity has never come easily to her and she's willing to practice into the late evening and follow all the rules of the game if it means she'll finally find acceptance. But when she's kidnapped, she'll have to fight to survive a harrowing ordeal with a cold and calculated serial killer.

Serial Killer X knows about pain. He's been through the worst of what humans do to each other. The thrill is in the fight and he'll make sure his victims know it.
