"The Grim Ghost is the story of The Fringe, the realm that exists between life and death. The living can't see these "Fringewalkers" but they can see us. And there's a war raging in the Fringe between Matthew Dunsinane, better known as The Grim Ghost, and his arch-enemy, a man simply known as Braddock. This is a war that's been raging for hundreds of years. The arrival of a powerful new soul in the Fringe sets Dunsinane and Braddock on a final collision course that will literally bring Heaven and Hell raining down on all of us."
