After three years in prison, Shadow has done his time. But as the
days, then the hours, then the seconds until his release tick away,
he can feel a storm brewing. Two days before he gets out, his wife
Laura dies in a mysterious car crash, in apparently adulterous
circumstances. Dazed, Shadow travels home, only to encounter the
bizarre Mr Wednesday claiming to be a refugee from a distant war, a
former god and the king of America.
Together they embark on a very strange journey across the
States, along the way solving the murders which have occurred every
winter in one small American town. But they are being followed by
someone with whom Shadow must make his peace... Disturbing, gripping
and profoundly strange, Gaiman's epic new novel sees him on the road
to the heart of America.

Good Omens, which he wrote with Terry Pratchett. His graphic novels

High Cost of Living.
