Langley, Oklahoma has fallen. The once fortified town was blown to pieces by the mad General Hess and his R.U.S.T army and left abandoned. Not it’s free for zombies to roam its deserted streets. Making good their escape during the battle between the dead and Hess’s forces, what’s left of the Screamin’ Mimi’s crew and the remainder Langley’s residents flee south, hoping to reach the last haven of humanity east of the Rocky Mountains.
But everything they’ve lived through has just been a warm up for what’s to come. The shambling hordes grow more massive by the day, secessionist forces want to add them to their ranks, either as soldiers or breeding stock, and the General is determined to use every resource at his disposal to hunt them down. And to top everything off, it seems a certain crowbar-toting combat journalist and one blue-haired ninja girl died in their fall from the top of Pensacola Dam into the floodwaters eighty feet below.
Surviving the coming battle is a long shot at best, but the crew of the Mimi are used to bucking the odds. Maybe, just maybe, they’ve got one, last fight in them. After all, during the zombie apocalypse the only certain things in life are...Death and Taxes
For over a decade, SP Durnin crisscrossed America seeking the perfect pint of Guinness, while developing a deep love/hate relationship with the idea of hungry, mobile corpses. Previously he was known to keep a morning-after backpack in the trunk of his car (for if he woke up in a strange place after a night out), but years ago, upgraded to a Bug-Out-Bag. Keep Your Crowbar Handy, Rotting To The Core, Assuming Room Temperature, and the final of the series Death And Taxes, are the first series set within his zombie-verse™.SP resides in Ohio with his family, one mutant dog, and two very spoiled cats that he refers to as “the crazy, furry, stupid, little ninja” until the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
Now, a burned out combat journalist, a self-proclaimed adrenaline junkie, a health food store owner, and a ditzy pharmacy tech have to hold their own against legions of walking corpses. At first glance, none of them are likely candidates to survive for long in The Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse. But hey, stranger things have happened. Psychopaths, escaped criminals, and para-military white supremacists all stand in their way, not to mention the ever-increasing, zombie hordes. If Jake doesn't want to become one of the shambling dead he'll need to keep his whits about him, and his crowbar handy.
But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.
Life in the zombie apocalypse blows.
Just ask Katherine Cho and her friends. The unlikely crew of the Screamin’ Mimi thought they'd seen everything. Hungry corpses rising from the dead, chaos in the streets and people treated as hors d’oeuvres.
Unfortunately, that was just the beginning.
New York Times-bestselling author Paul Auster (The New York Trilogy) shows us a disturbing Hobbesian society in this dystopian, post-apocalyptic novel.
