Bryn Davis knows working at Fairview Mortuary isn't the most glamorous career choice, but at least it offers stable employment--until she discovers her bosses using a drug that resurrects the clientele as part of an extortion racket. Now, Bryn faces being terminated--literally, and with extreme prejudice.
Wit the help of corporate double-agent Patrick McCallister, Bryn has a chance to take down the bigger problem--pharmaceutical company Pharmadene, which treats death as the ultimate corporate loyalty program. She'd better do it fast, before she becomes a zombie slave--a real working stiff. She'd be better off dead

Bryn teams up with the most unlikely characters and great friendships are formed as they all band together to keep each other safe and stop the mad power hungry people behind the drug. but Bryn faces another turmoil because if she stops the people behind the drug, she no longer any conection to the drug keeping her alive.
This book was a slow starter, I have to admit it has took me a long time to read it. It was really hard to get into. But when I got into it I was blown away. It was written so well. Im thinking this book would make a really good film, because it has some really good action in it, and I think it had a story line that I cant remember reading anywhere else. plus there is a couple of sections that have a shock factor, and I hope you have a strong stomach because you will need it. I think this book was really well written and im really glad I stuck to it and didn't give up on it. I cant wait to see what happens in the next book and to see more of Bryn and Pats relationship and to see if Joe is reunited with his family.
Overall a slow start but a really good book. not one to give up on.
