Ashes to ashes, dust to dust...
What happens to us after we die? Does the soul live on? Is there a soul at all, or are we just electrical impulses walking upright? Poets and dreamers, prophets and madmen have failed to answer these questions. Maybe the only person who knows the answer is he who ushers us to our final resting place.
Adam is the gravedigger, a shadowy figure with a mysterious past, a reclusive landscaper who has given up the gardens of the living to tend to the dead. He lives a quiet and orderly existence until tragic echoes of the past invade his sanctuary and ancient ghosts threaten his sanity. Do the dead live on? Can decades-old heartbreak be overcome? This eerie and thrilling debut novel by Ilan Herman will leave you guessing until the very end...and beyond.
