Publisher's Summary

Conrad Avery Sutton III is dead, but he's still around. And he's bent on revenge, frat-boy style. Responsible for the hazing "accident" that killed him is supposed golden boy Ryan Hutchins.

Cult sensation Will Clarke delivers a darkly comic tale described as a cross between Animal House and The Lovely Bones.

What the Critics Say

"A winning comedy of collegiate (bad) manners....black farce of a high degree." (Publishers Weekly)
"It's a clever commentary on the whole frat scene, as well as an evocative exploration of some of the practical realities of being a ghost. Lots of fun." (Booklist)

    "better off dead"

    I bought this book because, as a fraternity alumnus, I thought the concept was phenomenal: a pledge, murdered in a hazing incident gone awry, wreaks his revenge on the guilty party as a ghost. Unfortunately, the author can't carry the tale. The writing is redundant and the characters predictable and boring. The ending was positively awful. Ostensibly this book was published by a company that gives writers from Texas a forum to publish their work, but I dearly hope this isn't the best Texas has to offer. Do not waste your time!
