at least not for one without a car.

18-year-old high school dropout, Beaumont Benning, has been working a dead-end job transporting cadaver heads by messenger bag for the last three years. As a human working for the local ghoul cartel, there isn’t much in the way of promotion potential. So when a dodgy-sounding job opportunity comes Beau’s way, who is he to say no? Especially to people who might eat him for saying no.

Beau soon finds himself caught in an undead conspiracy involving espionage, murder, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and his high school crush. With only the help of his bonded spirit-animal, Paddy, will Beau be able to outwit ghouls, vampires, and federal agents, all while battling intermittent icicle impotence, Paddy’s fearsome stuffed animal addiction, and a murderous ex-best friend?
