More About This Book

Overview


Ex-mercenary, pirate, and gun-runner Dante Bogart knows he's screwed the pooch after he hands one of his shady employers a biological weapon that made the dead rise from their graves, laugh like hyenas, and feast upon the living. Dante tried to blow the whistle via a tell-all video that went viral — but that was before the black ops boys deep-sixed him at a secret interrogation site on the Panama-Colombia border. When Dante wakes up in the jungle with the five intervening years missing from his memory, he knows he's got to do something about the laughing sickness that has caused a world-wide slaughter. The resulting journey leads him across the nightmare that was the Panama Canal, around Cape Horn in a hijacked nuclear warship, to San Francisco's mission district, where a crew of survivalist hackers have holed up in the pseudo-Moorish-castle turned porn-studio known as The Armory. This mixed band of anti-social rejects has taken Dante's whistle blowing video as an underground gospel, leading the fight against the laughing corpses and the corporate stooges who've tried to profit from the slaughter. Can Dante find redemption and save civilization?

    Really fun read

    If George Romero's Night of the Living Dead and Quentin Taratino's Pulp Fiction had an evil offspring it would be Thomas C Roche's Panama Lunch. Any book that can launch zombies from catapults deserves five stars.

    Hell of a ride!

    This is one heck of a first novel! Roche manages to combine zombie horror with hard-boiled fiction and quick wits in a laugh till you die thrill ride. The author's skill at crafting prose is first rate. Some sections of the book boil over with awesome turns of phrase that are joy to read and reread. If you enjoy the genres of horror, sci-fi, politics, crime, or even comedy you will enjoy spending time with The Panama Laugh.
