When Peter Mellor, a college professor in the rural town of Gant, Ohio, gets into in an automobile accident during a zombie outbreak, he comes to with a slight case of amnesia. What’s worse, he’s also dead. With society crumbling around him and violence escalating into daily life, Peter quickly learns that being a zombie isn’t all fun and brains.
Humans—generally unsympathetic—try to kill him at nearly every opportunity. His old friends are loath to associate with him. And he finds himself getting “hungry” at the most inconvenient times. And though a large part of his skull is missing, Peter is still able to decipher the most troubling aspect of his new condition: his accident was no accident at all. Faced with the harrowing mystery of his death, Peter must solve his own murder. Battling the avenging “breathers” and the inevitability of his own rotting flesh, Peter better act fast—while the odds of success are still on the dead.
“A delicious slice of undead Americana” (Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Patient Zero), Zombie, Ohio is an outstanding blend of action and witty insight for fans of Shaun of the Dead.
“George Romero, director of the original Night of the Living Dead and its sequels, should snap up the rights to this novel…combines humor with horror in a way that is guaranteed to make any zombie fan stand up and shout, “Braaaaaains!”—Booklist
