They say that behind every comedian lurks a tortured soul…

Yet, comedian Henry Black finally has everything he’s always dreamed of: a thriving career, and a wife and daughter who he loves more than life itself. After years of struggle, he finally has it made.

Until three men force their way into his home, killing Henry and destroying the safe, comfortable world he has built for his family.

But that is only the beginning of his hellish torment. He wakes in purgatory, where he’s met by two men, both offering a choice. Randall offers a chance at heaven. Boothe, however, offers something far more tempting—a chance to go back to his life.

A chance to see if his family is okay.

For Henry, there is no choice. He accepts Boothe’s deal. But with every deal comes a price: his body is twisted to match his sins, and Henry is no longer the man his wife remembered—Henry is no longer a man at all.

He is monstrous.

Thrust into darkness and madness—unable to be with the people he loves—Henry embraces his new form, and his new supernatural abilities, and does the only thing he can: avenge his murder. But as Henry grows closer to the truth of what happened on that terrible night, he grows further from his humanity.

How far will he go to seek revenge?

And is he willing to sacrifice his soul?

From the authors who brought you Z 2134, Yesterday’s Gone, and ForNevermore, comes another dark tale sure to keep you waiting for the next episode.

Sean Platt spent his childhood dreaming up entrepreneurial endeavors, buying his first business at eighteen. He eventually discovered his gift for writing and, influenced by his love of film and television, he developed a highly visual style in his work. It was this passion for cinematic storytelling that drew him to David Wright and inspired their collaborations. David Wright’s lifelong serialized-fiction addiction started with comic books as a kid and continues today through shows such as The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad. This craving for compelling storytelling inspired David’s own work and eventually led to his co-author partnership with Sean Platt. Collective Inkwell is David and Sean’s indie publishing company, created to help revive serialized fiction in e-book form. Their ongoing efforts have established them as “Kings of the Serial,” with weekly story installments resulting in series such as Yesterday’s Gone, WhiteSpace, ForNevermore, Available Darkness, and Z 2134.
