Summary

Carol Evers is a woman with a dark secret. She has died many times...but her many deaths are not final: they are comas, a waking slumber indistinguishable from death, each lasting days. 

Only two people know of Carol's eerie condition. One is her husband, Dwight, who married Carol for her fortune and - when she lapses into another coma - plots to seize it by proclaiming her dead and quickly burying her...alive. The other is her lost love, the infamous outlaw James Moxie. When word of Carol's dreadful fate reaches him, Moxie rides the Trail again to save his beloved from an early, unnatural grave. 

And all the while, awake and aware, Carol fights to free herself from the crippling darkness that binds her - summoning her own fierce will to survive. As the players in this drama of life and death fight to decide her fate, Carol must in the end battle to save herself. 

The haunting story of a woman literally bringing herself back from the dead, Unbury Carol is a twisted take on the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale that will stay with you long after you've reached the end.

Critic reviews

"This one haunts you for reasons you can't quite put your finger on [...] [Josh Malerman] defies categories and comparisons with other writers." (Kirkus Reviews)
