Nick Graves is a miserable man. Every day he comes home from his dream job to a stale marriage. On the day he finally summons the courage to tell his wife, Eve, he wants a divorce she has exciting news for him – she’s pregnant.
Nick is a spiteful man. He purchases his dream home in an ideal location far away from family, friends, and coworkers. It’s a life changing decision he’s chosen to make without Eve’s consultation.
Nick is a terrified man. He quickly realizes the residents of his new hometown are a bit eccentric. After a trip to the local doctor’s office Eve begins to behave strangely. And once Nick finds out what’s really going on he’ll never be able to look at Eve the same way.
His time spent attached to Britain’s S.A.S. still gives him nightmares, his social life is in the toilet, and his best friend is an unrepentant adrenaline junkie.
Unfortunately, just as things finally seem to go his way, decomposing corpses of the recently dead begin rising to gnaw on the living. Now the streets are filled with mindless creatures hungering for only one thing: human flesh. Jake’s unlikely group of survivors needs to make for some kind of refuge, and not get zombified along the way. One question looms large on all their minds however: how to do that without being turned into drooling maggot-heads themselves? Psychopaths, escaped criminals, and para-military, white-supremacists all stand in their way; not to mention an ever-growing threat from the slowly rotting hordes. If Jake doesn’t want to end up as one of the mobile dead, he’ll need to keep his whits about him.
And his crowbar handy…
Well, here it is. The “Keep Your Crowbar Handy…” book trailer!
