Mike Sterben has had the last straw, and has decided he would be better off dead. But just when it seems he would escape his troubles, he discovers they are far from over. After learning to handle his ghostly existence, he must take on would-be demons as well as the corrupt living. And when it seems the last obstacle has been beaten, he must confront one last terror without the aid of a valuable ally. If he fails, the penalty will literally be worse than death.
