The Bone Magician by F.E. Higgins
I wasn't a huge fan of The Big Black Book of Secrets, so this "paraquel" didn't shock and awe me either. I think it's more for grade school kids, so my mind doesn't quite wrap around it and I was a little bored throughout. Pin Carpue works for an undertaker as a body watcher. One late night he sees two people raise a corpse and hence begins the story of the Bone Magician. What's the secret? And did Pin's father really kill his uncle?
