Just imagine being a cop on a typical night .Sitting in your patrol car and on the radio the dispatcher has a call for you. immediately of course Eddie the main character is listening in. Him and his partner at the time respond to the call. In the same instance texas is being hit with all these hurricanes at once. So the dispatcher tells them disorderly drunks in a quiet neighborhood .. Only to arrive at the scene late at night and realizing these people are a bit odd. The issue at hand is there not drunk. There dead people wandering around a quit neighborhood . I can imagine that zombies might look intoxicated in the dark, but I wouldn't wanna get up close to find out! Joe McKinney writing makes you feel like your there , its scary and funny at times . My favorite character would be his buddy Marcus. He was comical,he gave the book more life to it.
