Claws. Did I mention claws? I kill them for a living, but it’s as much a vocation as a freelance career choice. It helps me, helps my neighborhood, and the people I consider to be my family of choice. What’s more? I’m really good at it.
My life had a nice rhythm, and I'd almost gotten used to it, but the military bungled an attempt to wipe out an organized bunch of undead near a major commuting route into DC. The formerly-human survivors relocated. Now they’re less than an hour’s stroll away from where I live.
The new Zombie Overlord is smarter, crazier, and much more well-equipped than anyone we'd dealt with in the past. We have something he wants, badly. I know he's going to come and get it and try and wipe us out in the process... men, women, and even the children. I'd seen it done before elsewhere for lesser reasons.
This is my home. These are my people, my family. This is personal.

Molly Harper meets David Drake.
Zombies, nanobots, snarky conversation, entertaining, hot babes, manly men, plot twists, good vs. evil. What's not to like?

The funniest and most gruesome zombie story ever
At first I thought Frank was too cynical, too flip, and too likely to belittle everyone who tried to be his friend. Keep listening. Our author knows how make complex characters. He also remembers every zinger since 10th grade! Such a smart ass. Mr.Crawford describes the most grim guts on the wall scene, then observes something wildly funny. ROFL funny. Shoot food out your nose funny.
The twist on zombies in this story is really clever. They are quirky in every way, including retaining most of their premortem skills. I think, though, they meet your basic zombie definition. I'd be interested in others' opinions.
David Stifel is an admirable narrator. Except for making an Indian man and an Indian woman sound alike, he handles all the accents well.
I look forward to more works by this team, especially the next one in this series.
