About A TAKER OF MORROWS …RG Granville has his whole life in front of him…but only twenty-four hours to live it.

Beyond life’s boundaries, an enduring battle between good and evil determines the fate of earthly souls. Here, ‘caretakers’ guard and protect against the evil and vengeful ‘jumpers’ who slip back and forth between worlds to prey upon the living.

For one man, news of his impending demise sets off a deadly chain of events fueled by a jumper’s burning vengeance. Now he’s in a race against time to stop an unrelenting evil unleashed upon the earth. And if he’s to protect his family, and the world, he must breach the tenuous boundary between life and death to confront a killer.

A TAKER OF MORROWS is a supernatural thriller set in Boston and Cape Cod. Numerous locales in Falmouth and Chatham are featured in the story, including Liam McGuire’s Irish Pub, Falmouth Heights, the Chatham Squire, Carmines Pizza, Aunt Lydia’s Cove, as well as The Pancake Man in South Yarmouth. In A TAKER OF MORROWS, Cape Cod becomes a place of festering evil, a supernatural ‘hot spot’ where dark and vengeful spirits come and go. So, if you’re heading to the Cape for vacation this summer, you need to watch out for more than the sharks. There’s something strange happening out there…
