Since Night of the Living Dead, zombies have been a frightening fixture on the pop culture landscape, lumbering after hapless humans, slurping up brains and veins and whatever warm, fleshy matter they can clench in their rotting limbs. But what if they were real? What would happen if, tomorrow, corpses across the nation began springing up out of their graves and terrorizing the living? Employing hard science and solid police work--not to mention jaw-dropping (literally!) humor--Zombie CSU is the only guide available to staying alive and avoiding the undead. At last readers can:
"An indispensable tool for anyone tackling a festering corpse onslaught."
"Candid, eye-opening, cutting-edge, startling."
"Great fun...There are plenty of surprises in store for the reader and more than a few chills.."
"Forewarned is forearmed. Buy it now before reanimated corpses come knocking on your door."
