Synopsis

The Wake is a dark comic tale set at the wake of a strange urban hero. The accidental arrival of a man who never knew the deceased sets off a chain of events that will unravel a mystery, a death and a root canal.

Callum Campbell believes he has a gift to bring people together, that fate has chosen him to be an earthbound cupid. He spends his life finding other people their soul mates, but by doing so is left alone.

Hannah Welles is obsessed with death. She views it as a way of seeing life more clearly, and will stop at nothing to have her moment to experience death first hand and value the beauty of life.

Donald Jacobs is mad. In the final few months of his life he dresses as a character from his favourite novels. He becomes the character Sir John Greystone, a Wyrm hunter, and performs acts of bravery and daring do on the streets of London.

The Wake is the story of these three people and how death brings them together.
