Suspecting that something is amiss with their father's burial, teenager Kenneth Tyler and his sister Corrie venture to his gravesite and make a horrific discovery: their father, a whiskey bootlegger, was not actually buried inside the casket they bought for him. Worse, they learn that the undertaker, Fenton Breece, has been grotesquely violating the town's dead, enacting his perverse fantasies. But 1st he need to outrun Granville Sutter, a neighborhood strongman and convicted murderer hired by Fenton to destroy the evidence. With his poetic, haunting prose, William Gay rewrites the rules in the gothic fairytale while exploring the classic Southern themes of great and evil. What follows is an adventure through the Harrikin, an eerie backwoods filled with tangled roads, rusted machinery, and eccentric squatters— old men, witches, and households among them— who both shield and imperil Tyler as he runs for safety. Armed with incriminating photographs, Tyler becomes obsessed with bringing the perverse undertaker to justice.
