A nominee for an International Horror Guild Award and the Horror Writers Association’s Bram Stoker Award, Desperadoes: Quiet of the Grave is a macabre supernatural western set in the Arizona territory during the late 1800s. On the run for accidentally shooting a sheriff’s wife, ex-Texas Ranger Gideon Brood and his three friends have become wanted outlaws. Looking to relax in the small town of Luttrell, the four desperadoes soon find themselves caught in an ingeniously manipulative trap. But after barely evading their relentless hunter, the heroic outlaws face an even greater horror when a young gunslinger seemingly returns from the grave to collect the bounties on their heads. This trade paperback collects all five issues of the Quiet of the Grave miniseries.

“If you like believable heroes, if you like horror that steps beyond the typical horror motifs, if you like westerns that gallop beyond the usual trails and valleys, then you’ll like Desperadoes: Quiet of the Grave.  This is the good stuff.”
–Tony Isabella
