There is no hard evidence to tell us when Franky Russo''s young mind turned toward the decision to select a career in the funeral business, or if he actually even consciously made the decision to pursue that livelihood. Perhaps he was groomed for that position by unknown forces. In any case, Franky''s dreams came true, and along with the dreams came the nightmares of an unexplainable existence on this earth. The characters and stories in this book represent nothing less than human desperation-an attempt to create some sort reasonable rationalization for what really happened. Still, some things cannot be explained, only detailed. What happened to Franky during his career in the funeral industry is something that most people would not wish on their worst enemy. One may finish this book with a myriad of emotions, such as laughing hysterically or crying like a baby and in the end with shivers running up and down their spine. The irony of this book is that it has a way of showing how one deals with the everyday frustrations of the embalmer/funeral director, although I don''t think Franky ever really accomplished that.
