James Garfield, the 20th President of the United States, lingered for months after being shot by an assassin. His last words before death are reported to have been, "There is pain here." History believes this referred to the fatal cardiac arrest Garfield suffered that moment. But in fact, he was referring to an afterlife he could already see, inhabitants of which were recruiting help to retrieve lost souls in a sort of purgatory...an offer he accepted as he died.
But something is off balance in the afterlife. Will Garfield be able to partake in his new destiny before he and all human souls are swept into oblivion?
