Reboot the apocalypse!
For a while, it looked like the living had won. The war against the walking dead lasted almost a decade, but it’s mostly over. There are only a few straggling zombies left to take care of. Los Angeles has returned to its lattes and long commutes. It’s up to a small Reclamation Crew to clean up the Zoms left behind. But when the undead dry up, their skin turns to dust. Now the hot Santa Ana winds deliver a new threat…because the Zoms were only the beginning of something far worse.
“John Palisano crashes the zombie apocalypse genre into dystopian fiction at high speeds. Clever, brutal and highly entertaining.”
—Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Fall of Night
“Dust of the Dead is a pressure cooker of a thriller, a masterwork of world building, and a genuinely and refreshingly unique spin on the zombie genre, but above all, it is a beautiful dance on the line between life and death.”
—Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Dead City
“There’s never been a zombie book like Dust of the Dead. It’s horrifying, blackly funny, rich in pathos, and thoroughly original, and it’s also one of the best L.A.-based horror novels ever written.”
—Lisa Morton, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Zombie Apocalypse: Washington Deceased
