Blurb: A percentage of the earth’s population has transformed into surprisingly functional zombies who returned to work the next morning as if they weren’t undead monstrosities. Justice Kinkead, officer in an elite zombie fighting force, gets called out when good zombies go bad, putting down the brain cravers and safeguarding the new economy.
After several of his partners succumb to unfortunate deaths, Justice figures he’ll go it alone…until he’s assigned a mysterious and sexy new partner, Merlin Pride, who seems to know more about the zombies’ origins than he’s letting on.
Merlin also seems to sense that Justice needs a good screw, but it’s complicated: Justice still lives with his undead ex-boyfriend. Can Justice make peace with his past? And if he does, should he take a chance on a man who may have something to do with destroying civilization as they knew it?

Review: First let me say I am not a fan of books with zombies in them but I gave this book a try as the blurb intrigued me. I was disappointed by the lack of information about Justice, the cop but liked the information that there was on Merlin. It seemed that some things were well thought out while others were lacking.
I had a hard time trying to actually connect with the characters in this book as it I felt it could have been so much better than it actually was. This book has a lot going on it from mystery to action to comedy which was good in a strange way. But I still couldn’t get into it.
The reasoning for the zombies was a little strange but it fit with the story. It was a weird story but it wasn’t for me but I’m sure others would like it where I didn’t.
It was an o.k. read.
