Braineater Jones wakes up face down in a swimming pool with no memory of his former life, how he died, or why he's now a zombie. With a smart-aleck severed head as a partner, Jones descends into the undead ghetto to solve his own murder. But Jones' investigation is complicated by his crippling addiction to human flesh. Like all walking corpses, he discovers that only a stiff drink can soothe his cravings.
Unfortunately, finding liquor during Prohibition is costly and dangerous. From his Mason jar, the cantankerous Old Man rules the only speakeasy in the city that caters to the postmortem crowd. As the booze, blood, and clues coagulate, Jones gets closer to discovering the identity of his killer and the secrets behind the city's stranglehold on liquid spirits. Death couldn't stop him, but if the liquor dries up, the entire city will be plunged into an orgy of cannibalism. Cracking this case is a tall order. Braineater Jones won't get out alive, but if he plays his cards right, he might manage to salvage the last scraps of his humanity.

Leave your zombie prejudices at home
The author has created a world that is absurd and dark. If you like the noir genre and enjoy all things zombie then this is right up your alley.
The zombie brothel. Use your imagination.
His accent was perfect for the stereotypical noir hard boiled PI. And his voices for the Boss and his minion were bang on.
Aside from Jones obviously... "The Head" was awesome! But that Kumarie! She was such a bitch! And by the time her crazy became obvious it was just a little too late...
The Zombie Detective
Gory dark humor
Aside from the zombie brothel, there is a particularly disturbing sex scene *cringe*
Braineater Jones of course! Alcibe the talking head is a close second.
Steve Rimpici was AMAZING as the narrator in this. He has an amazing voice, and each character has it's own accent. He really brings this story to life.
