The Dead Man

Matthew Cahill was a simple man leading a quiet life…until he was killed in an avalanche. Three months later his corpse was found and sent to the morgue, but something inexplicable happened: he awoke. Now he is a soldier in the unseen eternal battle between good and evil, between gifted mortals and dark entities only hinted about in lore, We all know the war is happening, but only Matt can see the people afflicted with evil and stop them before they strike. Only Matt can defeat Mr. Dark, a mysterious, supernatural figure who, with the help of his fearsome minions, spreads evil like a virus. But Mr. Dark also holds the secret to Matt's miraculous rebirth and is perhaps the only one who can tell him whether he is still a man or the walking dead. For Matthew Cahill, each day is a journey into a supernatural world he knows nothing about, a quest for the answers to a terrifying mystery, and a horrific fight to save us—and his soul—from the clutches of pure evil.
