Overview

In a not-so-distant future, the world has devolved and most of the population has become the animated dead. Those few that are living are called zombies. They are feared and must be hunted down and destroyed.

Conrad is one of the animated dead. A devoted husband, a loving father, he is the best zombie Hunter in the world. But when he hesitates one night in killing a living adult, his job is put in jeopardy. Instead of being outright dismissed, he is transferred to a program so secretive even the Government would deny its existence - and where Conrad soon learns a startling truth about how his own son might be in danger of becoming a zombie.

As living extremists become more emboldened and blow up a Hunter Headquarters, as a power-hungry Hunter becomes more enraged and will stop at nothing to gain absolute power, Conrad begins to question not just his profession, but his own existence. And before he knows it he is on a journey of self-discovery, remembering a past he was forced to forget, and soon finding himself not only a hunted man, but a man who must now save both his son and the entire world.

Praise for THE DISHONORED DEAD:

"THE DISHONORED DEAD is simply brilliant, and its telling a superb achievement. Robert Swartwood has given us a wonderful twist, not only on the zombie novel, but on the dystopian tale as well. It's like BRAVE NEW WORLD meets LOGAN'S RUN, but with a bite all its own. Strongly recommended!"

- Joe McKinney, author of APOCALYPSE OF THE DEAD and FLESH EATERS

"THE DISHONORED DEAD is one of the most original and gripping zombie novels I have ever read, offering a glimpse into the life of a zombie in a world turned backwards, where zombies live and humans are feared. Highly recommended!"

- Jeremy Robinson, author of INSTINCT and THRESHOLD

A punch in the gut. A family history, with a secret. A marriage disolving, when it can be saved, a father protecting his wife and children while trying to save the world from the monsters. A truth revealed, traitors and a society that fears any differences. Add into this mix a world that doesn't know it's own history. Great job by Robert. He doesn't make the mistake of explaining how the world got to this point, sticking to a strong story and the people involved. I would love to rave about it more, but then this will have so many spoilers, it would ruin the story for you.
