Working Stiff, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


It's a tough job but somebody's got to do it - dead or alive. Bryn Davis knows working at Fairview Mortuary isn't the most glamorous career choice, but at least it offers stable employment - until she discovers her bosses using a drug that resurrects the clientele.

Now Bryn faces being terminated...literally. Bryn is given the chance to take down the bigger problem, pharmaceutical company Pharmadene, which treats death as the ultimate corporate loyalty program.

She'd better do it fast before she becomes a zombie slave.

A real working stiff.

Review by

Bryn Davis left the army and became a funeral director. The idea of helping people with their dead appealed to her. It's people she sometimes has problems with. The job with Fairview Mortuary isn't bad until she discovers that her bosses have a sideline and that sideline is a killer.Dying is a big enough problem, the corporation who developed the drug are a much bigger problem. She has to work out how to stay alive and how to keep the corporation from getting too much power.Bryn was a believable character and I liked Patrick and Reily. I also really liked that Reily was married and his marriage was stable, instead of the usual two men dilemma prevalent in paranormal fiction at the moment. I enjoyed this one, it's a different twist on the story. Another zombie story that I didn't hate this year... I'm looking forward to more about this series.
