Detective Terry Lane is a standout homicide cop who thought he’d seen it all…until now. As tough as Eliot Ness of The Untouchables—and just as incorruptible—Lane has seen the darkest side of human behavior. But he’s never seen a murder spree like this, targeting the wealthy, the powerful and the privileged. For the evidence is clear: the killers have not emerged from the seamy underside of the city…but from six feet under it. They are the walking dead, spreading terror and showing no mercy.Following a trail of drugs, blackmail, and the twisted clues of a seductive nightclub singer, Detective Lane will have to think outside the box…or he could end up inside one, buried alive.In 1934, while living in New York, the heart of the publishing industry, Hubbard struck up a friendship with the city’s medical examiner—a relationship that started his education in undetectable crime and provided him with authoritative clinical background for his detective stories.“A rollicking horror yarn [that] taps into the current craze for zombies…. heart-pounding.” —Publishers Weekly* An International Book Awards Winner

"Goodreads First Reads Giveaway Book."With short murder mysteries (our pal Sherlock comes to mind) there's a certain balance that is achieved with information revealed to the reader and the details noticed by the trained detective. I found this story to be lacking that sort of elegance (for want of ...

There are different people doing the voices and various sound effects which bring the story to life and really makes it feel like the time period. This audio ...
