Everything on this planet dies sooner or later, yet it is how people die that intrigues us most, because we don't kw how we'll make our exits, do we? The people in these eleven stories are facing death. Some go willingly, others put up a fight when old Charos beckons. And there are always the nasties, who like to give the Old Reaper a hand, finding brutal pleasure in filling his ferry to capacity. But killers can more escape the end of life than the victims they push prematurely into eternity. There is always a balance - you live, you die, and Charos takes sides, just bodies. It is how we deal with the imminent end that makes each case so different and so individual. If you believe in the Afterlife, then death is t so awful, or is it? That depends on where you're going.
