The Beginning of the End of the World in Dead of Night

Dead of NightA sadistic serial killer, Homer Gibbon, was executed for his crimes, but Homer didn’t stay dead. The prison doctor wants Homer to suffer so the doctor injects Homer with a drug that would keep his mind alive. Homer would be buried and later would regain consciousness and then die in a nightmare deep in the ground, but instead his body was sent elsewhere and not immediately buried. In a small town in Pennsylvania, Homer woke up very hungry.

The injection turned Homer into a zombie but what’s worse is that Homer is contagious and it spreads with every bite. The small town cops aren’t prepared for the impossible as the dead return with a voracious appetite in Dead of Night: A Zombie Novel by Jonathan Maberry. With guns blazing the end of the world has begun unless this small town can stop it. Maberry is a Bram Stoker Award winner and the author of numerous books including Patient Zero,and Rot & Ruin.
