Murder from the Grave

Murder From The Grave by Marcus McGee THE GREATEST SERIAL MURDER ARTIST OF ALL TIME? Set in San Francisco, it’s the story of a serial killer whose perverse ambition is to murder seven people – after he is already dead! He can only do this by setting up the murders before he dies. His complaint: All the world’s greatest serial murder artists go to their graves unknown.

The ones we know about, Bundy, Gacy, Ramirez, BTK, Ridgway and others – we know about them only because they got caught, so they weren’t the truly great ones. This killer considers himself to be the best killer of all time, and he wants the world to know it. Because the planned murders are interdependent, with each killing setting of the next, the killer dares the secretive detective to either stop him or proclaim his genius to the world.

Former Berkeley criminal psychology professor-turned police detective Deuteronomy Saint Claire, convinced the letter is from the same killer who murdered his son, reluctantly accepts the premise and the challenge. By preventing any one of the planned murders the brilliant detective can interrupt the sequence and save lives, but only if the killer’s claim to murder from the grave is true. Using clues from the letters, the detective is determined to defeat the killer, and if his instincts prove true, solve the murder of his son. 425 pages ISBN – 978-0-9673123-1-6

    Great Read! (posted on
    I just finished reading “Murder From The Grave” by Marcus McGee and boy what a ride! There are so many twists and turns in that book that had me yelling “whoa!” that my husband sent me out of the room! If you like a good thriller with good characters (I liked Slater) and unpredictable action and surprises, you’ll love this book! I give it two great big thumbs up!
    I thoroughly enjoyed this diabolically sinister page-turner. The intricately woven intrigue kept me on edge in suspense. The details were vivid and plot twists took me on a rollercoaster ride! I had the sheer pleasure of being surprised of who the villain turned out to be.

    Marcus McGee is my new favorite writer. Great book! I just bought one of his other books, Legal Thriller. I’ll let you know what I think.

  5. Charles says:

    This Murder From the Grave has got to be one of the best books I’ve ever read! Why don’t more people know about it? And why isn’t it a movie? What can I do to help you get the word out about this book? Seriously, to anyone reading this comment: Marcus McGee is one incredible writer and this is a great story. Think of it – this killer wants to murder seven people – after he is already dead! You just have to read it. And Deuteronomy Saint Claire, the main character, is an interesting and complex person you can’t help but want to figure out. If you are a fan of stories set in San Francisco, you’ll recogize many of the settings. I highly recommend this book – until there is a movie, you’ll see it as you read.

    Great book!

  7. Evelyn Anderson says:

    I’m an avid reader, and the title intrigued me, so I bought Murder From the Grave by Marcus McGee, a writer I had never read. What a good book. It was intelligently written and very entertaining, right down to the last paragraph. I don’t want to spoil the ending for anyone, but I hope we will be seeing more of Saint Claire.
