Highly recommended! -Tim Waggoner, author of Eat the Night and The Way of All Flesh John Palisa crashes the zombie apocalypse genre into dystopian fiction at high speeds. Clever, brutal and highly entertaining. -Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Fall of Night Live fast, die young, and leave a bloodthirsty corpse. That's the saying of a new pack of fiendish predators infesting a New England town. They're infected with the Ghost Heart, a condition that causes them to become irresistible and invincible...as long as they drink the blood of the living.
