When a medical emergency causes a plane to make an emergency landing at an isolated northern Canadian airfield, a single survivor is left to piece together the events that found him unconscious and alone in the medical centre of a recently abandoned ghost town. Naked, sick and hungry, he must use his knowledge and skill to survive the sub-arctic winter and uncover the secrets of the town's final days. His revelations will lead him on a quest to seek redemption and help the scattered survivors of a terrible disaster.
Ain't No Grave is not your average zombie novel. Introspective and psychological, it is the story of a man coping with survival in a changed world. He will soon discover that he too, has changed and nothing will ever be the same. Quiet, dark and emotional yet with twists, turns and tense action, Ain't No Grave will thrill you and leave you waiting in anticipation for the next instalment. Inspired by apocalyptic, mythological and old western stories, "The Penance of Leather" Saga is a loose adaptation of the Labours of Heracles set in a modern world reeling from global disaster.
