Life's tough in America. Especially when you're dead. Faraday thought finding a runaway girl would be easy money. But when the girl turns up dead - the first American in decades who hasn't relived as a zombie - Faraday must hit the streets to find her killer. Standing in his way are undead gangbangers, a police force rife with bigotry and lifism, and the zombie crime lord of Harlem. But with the help of a necrophilic pathologist, a severed head named Dorothy, and a reporter that would literally give her right arm for a story, Faraday must discover why the dead girl didn't come back to life. And he better be quick before the animosity between the living and the dead sparks a riot that could burn New York City to the ground. In a country where the afterlife is the same as life before death, can anyone really live at all? Welcome to Dead America. Land of the dead and home of the grave.
