Gary A. Braunbeck Synopsis: In Silent Graves is the first book of the Cedar Hill series. One moment, Robert Londrigan is an up-and-coming newscaster, devoted husband, and father-to-be; the next, he’s a widower in a morgue, staring at gaping holes in his daughter’s body where surgeons have harvested every useful scrap of her organs and tissue. The rock-bottom falls out from under his life when a disfigured man knocks Robert out and steals what’s left of her tiny corpse out from under his nose, and leaves a gruesome surprise waiting for him back home. Robert’s search for the disfigured man leads him through a rapidly-fragmenting reality into a chiaroscuro world and the discovery that neither his wife nor his daughter are who he thought they were.
