Near Dead issue # 1

Mayhew is a killer for hire who has seen the light, both literally and figuratively.  After a job goes south he turns to his friend and confidant to patch him up.  On the operating table his heart stops and he is visited by all of his past kills.  This spiritual intervention sends Mayhew on a new path but it’s not all that far of his original.  This book is fun and feels like throw back to a 70’s or 80’s tv show but with modern sensibility.
