Series Info:The first Thomas Usher novel.
Thomas Usher has a terrible gift.
Following a car crash in which his wife and daughter are killed, he can see the recently departed, and it's not usually a pretty sight. When he is called to investigate the violent death of the daughter of a prominent local gangster, Usher's world is torn apart once more.
For the barriers between this world and the next are not as immutable as once he believed.

Praise and Reviews:
"Gary McMahon's vision is as bleak as a Yorkshire moor, but it glows with a wintry light that illuminates the dark we live in. His prose and his sense of place are precise and evocative, and his characters are as real as you and me. He's one of the darkest - which is to say brightest - new stars in the firmament of horror fiction."- Ramsey Campbell
"Pretty Little Dead Things is a very disturbing read. Gary McMahon seems intent on taking readers through the looking glass and tearing down the walls between the living and the dead. He creates dark, hallucinatory images that burn in your brain forever. One very creepy dude, and this is his creepiest to date."- Christopher Fowler
"It's by far the best horror novel release of 2010 and what's even better is that it's only the first novel in the series."- Dark Fiction Review
