The incredible debut novel from exciting new author Simon Spurrier

Life becomes complicated when the dead won't stay dead, in this stunning debut by Simon Spurrier.

Michael Point doesn't seem anything special. He dresses conservatively, is thoughtful, methodical and well spoken. He also happens to kill people for a living. It's not about getting back at the world; for Michael it's much simpler than that: It's All About The Money.

But things are starting to get strange: his hits are coming back to life and trying to kill him. Is he losing his mind? Or is could it be that the things he sees aren't delusions at all, but hints of a divine conflict: a heavenly war, sucking him in...?

Simon Spurrier

Simon Spurrier was born in 1981. Since 2001 he's become a major writer for the UK's foremost adult comic 2000 AD, and in recent years has published multiple projects through U.S. giants such as Marvel (X-MEN, LEGACY, WOLVERINE), D.C., Avatar Press, Dark Horse and Image.

He began his career as a prose writer in 2003 with a novelisation of the videogame FIRE WARRIOR. He subsequently produced work-for-hire genre novels for BL Publishing and Abaddon Press. In late 2007 Spurrier published his first creator-owned novel, CONTRACT, through Hodder Headline. This was followed in 2011 by A SERPENT UNCOILED.

Spurrier was born in Somewhere-You've-Never-Heard-Of, grew up in the heartlands of Nowhere-Terribly-Interesting, and lives today in north London. He spends much of his time in quiet cafes and pubs, where he exerts an unwanted cosmic magnetism upon any loud or malodorous patrons who should enter.
