With a fast-paced plot that twists, turns, and shocks, vibrant characters who pack an emotional punch, and plenty of dark humor, "Play Dead" is a pulse-pounding thriller that reflects the national obsession with football and the growing fascination with the undead.
"[T]here's something to be said for the creaky sense of humor and dramatic earnestness that Brown brings to the page."
"Readers will be loath to put this debut down after the first chapter....Keep a watchful eye out for more from this gifted author!" (top pick)
From the Publisher
After a rival team causes his football squad's bus to crash, killing everyone, quarterback Cole Logan--who, due to injury, was not on the bus--enlists the black-magic abilities of a mysterious fan to turn his dead teammates into zombies, so that they can get revenge on the rival team on the field, but if they don't win, they are destined for Hell. Read by Macleod Andrews. Simultaneous.
Like most things in Texas, football is big. In the small town of Killington, however, the local high school team historically tends to lose--big. With Cole Logan leading the team as quarterback, this year might be a different story for the Jackrabbits--until a bus accident that kills the entire team. As the loan survivor, the tenacious Logan vows to bring his teammates back. If you're looking for a snappy read, full of zombies, sports talk, and a touch of high school drama, Ryan Brown's debut, PLAY DEAD, goes long for the touchdown.
