Description

“See you on the other side, Preacher Man.”

These are the last words of Joseph Hickey, a psychopath executed at Sing Sing prison for the murder of the Howell family in New York State.

After giving the last rites and watching Hickey die, troubled prison chaplain John Henry Beauregard quits his job to start a new life in the Appalachian Mountains.

Hickey’s death should have been the end of the nightmare, but then another family is murdered in identical circumstances, and John Henry is called back to New York to give the last rites to the killer.

As the killings continue, John Henry is drawn into a mystery with devastating consequences.

Is it possible to commit murder from beyond the grave?

Can John Henry stop the endless cycle of torment and solve the mystery before it is too late?
