"You're a zombie." he said, tone flat and curt. " You eat brains. What more do you need to know?"
I loved this book, I thought the different take on zombies was really cool.
Crawford has the unfortunate opportunity to find out what it's like to
be a zombie trying to exist in the real world. She wakes up in the
hospital not knowing what happened to her. They say she overdosed on
pills, but when I found out what happened at the end I wanted to put the
beat down on someone! Lets just say she was in the wrong place with the
wrong person at the wrong time.
Anyhoo, so she's left a
lunchbox with some funky looking stuff blended up in jars saying that
she needs to drink one a day. Needless to say she doesn't know what is
going on and it's nasty as all get out. Uggg... I don't think you will
find a brain smoothie at Dairy Queen. Gag a maggot! Now that that is out

remember what happened to her until later.
She also has to take a
job at the morgue for the drug charge. Now Angel has a very weak
stomach and can't understand why the site of the autopsies are not
making her sick and holy crow what is that delicious aroma. Who knew a
brain could smell so good!
After awhile she finds out she's a
zombie and can luckily get brains from the morgue. She has to deal with
other zombies wanting brains, other zombies being brain lords dealing in
selling brains. Really? And she's also learning a lot from this hot cop
that she keeps running into. She is learning in a sense to become a
zombie detective, which helps out when she has to find out who is now
I think this was a really cool mystery/zombie book. I look forward to reading the other books!
