Graverobbers Wanted (No Experience Necessary)

Available for Kindle and in a brand-new paperback edition!


The first book in the wildly popular series of horror/comedy novels featuring Andrew Mayhem!

When you’re desperate for money, searching for a little adventure, and aren’t the most responsible person in the world, you can end up doing some outrageous things. Which is how Andrew Mayhem, a married father of two, ends up accepting $20,000 to find a key…a key buried with a body in a shallow grave.

But what he finds in the grave isn’t quite what he expected, and what begins as a simple evening of morally questionable manual labor turns into a really good way to die. Andrew finds himself investigating a murder while forced into a bizarre game of wits and courage played by an unseen killer with a twisted sense of humor. It’s a game that will involve him with a group of filmmakers known as Ghoulish Delights, who are hiding a secret that will test every last bit of Andrew’s nerve to discover.

And it’s impossible to find a babysitter.


“This is a delightfully screwball horror novel that defies classification, so don’t even try.  Just read it.  You’ll love it.  Highly recommended.”

Creature Feature Tomb of Horror

“This novel has made me an instant Jeff Strand fan.”

The Horror Fiction Review

“The compulsively readable narrative provides consistent surprises and delights.  [Andrew] Mayhem is a thoroughly charming and lovable hero.  Strand has “cult author” written all over him and you owe it to yourself to check him out.”


“It takes great talent to mix serious horror fiction with comedy, yet Jeff Strand seems to pull it off effortlessly.  This is one of the most unique and entertaining books I’ve read this year.”

Midwest Literary Review

“One of the most refreshing books I have read in a while.  A special blend of horror and comedy that really works.”

Blood Moon Rising

“Graverobbers Wanted is my kind of book.  Witty, original, funny, scary, and I didn’t know who the killer was until Mr. Strand decided to tell me.  He’s so good I can’t understand why one of the [major] publishing companies hasn’t picked this guy up and made a bestseller out of him.”

Blackmask Online

“A twisted, fast, and addicting novel that will keep you guessing and laughing.”

“Strand flips his readers from the ghoulish to the hilarious, reminding us not to take anything too seriously. I strongly recommend this story to adults with a sense of humor and people who delight in extremes.”

Inscriptions Magazine

“I giggled, snorted, and guffawed my way through Jeff Strand’s incredibly funny, incredibly dark, incredibly mysterious debut novel.  Should be on every mystery lover’s list of favorites, especially if the odd and unusual tickles the imagination.”

    This book was recommended by a friend of mine who thought it was ‘suitably twisted’ for me to enjoy. I bought the electronic version from and read it in a single, hilarious sitting.
    Jeff has now been added to my ‘gotta read the rest of his stuff’ list.

    Thanks, Jeff!

    The Mayhem series is awesome. Although popular opinion says that Psychopath is a better book, I enjoyed Graverobbers more. The horror here seems to be more intense.
