Now it's up to Officer Dana Cypress to deal with the media scrutiny, religious zealots, and government quarantine that has come with them. In a town where the living have to learn to deal with those who are supposed to be dead, Officer Cypress must solve a brutal murder, and everyone, alive or undead, is a suspect.
For one day in rural central Wisconsin, the dead came back to life. Now, the living and the recently-returned struggle to maintain a sense of normalcy, amidst political and religious conflicts.
Another random pick from the library shelves. And this one was fantastic. A murder mystery, a small town with secrets, a interesting cast of characters, and a big supernatural twist. I was hooked from page one and sped through Volumes 1 and 2 over the course of the afternoon and evening. I was riveted. I'm intrigued by the larger questions about life and death, morality, and the meaning of life. More than just a comic book, but aren't they all. Definitely need to continue reading this series.
