Warren is dead.
And he is beginning to wonder how many ways one guy can die.
Purgatory can feel like Hell when you keep dying.
Warren finds himself in the bed with a petty, blonde woman who’s quietly sleeping.
That’s the start of his problems!
Warren doesn’t know who the woman is and what he’s doing there! In fact, he’s not even sure what decade it is.
Warren is dead!
He knows this as a fact. By now, he expected to be wearing wings or running around with a pitchfork in hand. Instead, Warren’s afterlife is an eerie, mixed-up purgatory. Instead of standing at the Pearly Gates, he’s trying to survive inside of a film world made up of obscure movies from the past.
Worse, Warren understands this far too well that he is just one of many lost souls trapped inside a bizarre reality engraved into celluloid by long-dead writers. He finds that his lot in this new life is to wake inside the body of someone who will be the upcoming murder victim. Warren carries no memories of the character and must piece together his identity.
Once the woman next to him wakes, Warren’s day quickly goes downhill. He quickly discovers that he’s aboard a tramp steamer returning from Cuba during the 1930s. Finding himself involved with an unsavory group of associates, Warren suddenly stands accused of two murders. Just one step away from the police and the gallows, the accused man must identify and trap the real killer. Escaping from the police and on the run from gangsters, Warren discovers Amber, his reluctant witness to his innocence may not be the person he thinks she is. Slowly he finds Amber may hold the key to his escape from purgatory. And, he finds a common bond between them. However, can Warren convince the woman that their fates are linked as they seek to discover the murderer?
