"On a rain-slick bend in the road ... he came upon a mob of the dead and lost control of his motorcycle and crashed. He awakened to find them stripping his flesh. He felt nothing. He killed them and brushed the dirt from his jacket. And felt nothing. He saw that he had become one of them. And felt nothing. Yet he was different. Death had not robbed him of his mind, as it had the other ones." Imagine the American Southwest in the aftermath of biological apocalypse. The dead have arisen, ravenous for flesh, and the landscape is so blasted and fierce that only a few pockets of human survivors remain. A loner named Hitch rides a Harley and swings a meat hook on a chain. He is a zombie, but he can think. And he can order other zombies to do his bidding. Dead Heat packs a unique hero, over-the-top action, wicked humor, and cosmic science-fiction horror into a killer combination that won the 1996 International Horror Critics Guild Award for best first novel. Not only is Dead Heat probably the best zombie-biker novel ever written, it's better than you'd think a zombie-biker novel could be.
