SYNOPSIS
In a remote back country near the Mexican border, Andreas Delmorales, young and disadvantaged, uncovers a terrible crime. Instead of the prompt justice he anticipates, bringing this tragedy to the attention of the law leads to Andreas becoming a pawn in the political schemes of a corrupt and ambitious lawman.

THE GOOD DEAD follows Andreas into prison and out again, in pursuit of the man who committed the crime he was convicted of, then after the lawman who framed him. When events overwhelm his careful preparations for revenge, he must escape powerful forces operating on both sides of the law. Fleeing with him are Esperanza Armijo, the niece of the man who framed Andreas, and Matthew Walker, a refugee from the collapse of the American middle class.

Three lives driven by loss onto paths that converge in the borderlands. When fate throws them together what they have already lost becomes irrelevant. What they could lose next is all that matters.

REVIEWS
"Al Sim arrests the reader in this powerfully delivered novel where questions of justice and vengeance jolt the senses. There is a creative maturity to the work that blooms through Sim's lucid and masterful domain of narrative language. The work announces and struggles with themes and experiences that directly confront key problems in American society. And it does so without apology or fear. Readers will be captivated by the intense and complex force that drives The Good Dead." --Roberto Vela Córdova
