Can a haunted man help the dead find peace?

Markhat is a Finder, charged with the post-war task of tracking down sons and fathers gone suddenly missing when an outbreak of peace left the army abandoned where they stood. But now it’s ten years on after the war, and about all he’s finding is trouble.

This time, trouble comes in the form of a rich widow with a problem. Her dearly departed husband, Ebed Merlat, keeps ambling back from the grave for nocturnal visits. Markhat saw a lot during the war, but he’s never seen anyone, rich or poor, rise from the grave and go tromping around the landscape. But for the right price, he’s willing to look into it.

As a storm gathers and night falls, Markhat finds darker things than even murder lurk amid the shadows of House Merlat.

Dead Man's Rain
Average rating
5 / 5
February 2nd, 2014
These Markhat books are some of the best urban fantasy going--they have dark elements without wallowing in it, they have great mysteries and the characters are second to none--this includes a growing and wonderful cast of characters with each book. None of the characters are stagnant either--they change, age, have relationships (and those ever oddball relatives pop up now and then...) If you like paranormal mysteries or urban fantasy this series is not to be missed. The first two (Dead Man's Rain and Cadaver Client) are short novels, while the rest are longer novels with more complexity and more fun!
