Charles Rowland and Edwin Paine, the dead British teenagers who are
always on the run from Death, travel stateside to solve a missing
persons case. Our intrepid heroes have been contacted by young Annika
Abernathy, a student at a posh International Academy in Chicago. It
seems that Annika's best friend has vanished. For Rowland and Paine to
investigate the case properly, they decide to enroll as students at
the school. And since it's an all-girls academy, the duo is forced to
go undercover - in drag.
Secret passages, food fights, and far too many fashionistas abound as
the Dead Boy Detectives solve the case and learn a lot about life from
the precocious daughters of international ambassadors and famous rock
stars.
As a bonus, this digest also features a free 8-page preview of T'k.

and into the embrace of a mystery.

just the 100 bullets for now...you guys recommend anything else in that genre?
Stray Bullets is supposed to be excellent if you're into the crim aspect of it, if it's Noir you're looking for go for Madrox, and if it's the conspiracy angle try out Preacher. The Grail owns.
