Publisher's Summary

The dead walk. Now the real battle for Seattle has begun. When a gas leak causes the National Guard to forcibly evacuate the neighborhood, Lester isn't going anywhere. The former dope pusher has a new clientele… the kind that require him to deal lead instead of drugs.
Mike, a newspaper reporter, suspects a conspiracy lies behind the chaos. He’s driven to find the truth, even if it means dragging his beautiful co-worker into danger. Kate has a dark secret: she’s a budding young serial killer. As society collapses, her skill in dealing death may be the one thing that can keep her alive. These survivors, along with others, are drawn together in their quest to find not only the truth behind the spreading apocalypse, but also to escape the madness they face at every turn.


Audible Editor Reviews

David Devries switches seamlessly between different characters’ points of view in a performance of post-apocalyptic, comic, zombie fiction that begins with a "gas leak" forcing the National Guard to clear Seattle. But not everyone leaves. Among those struggling for survival in this other "Emerald City" (envisioned by Timothy W. Long, whose other works include The Zombie Wilson Diaries) are a troubled journalist, serial killer, death rock singer, and dealer, who adapts his business to a new clientele demanding lead instead of dope. Each living Seattleite is seeking hope and salvation as a spreading virus returns the dead to upright positions.


What the Critics Say

"Mr. Long is defiantly a writer to watch and Among the Living is definitely a zombie novel to check out." (
