Forty years ago, the world as we know it was destroyed by hordes of the undead. Decades later, the threat isn't gone. It has evolved.
In 2069, the Bag Men work to make Sacramento, California, the safest place on earth.
In the first installment of the Bag Men series by Silas Jackson and J.R. Traas, the Sacramento Bureau of Public Health is facing a new danger inside the walls of their city. BPH agents are something between doctors and soldiers. And they have one job: keep the public safe in this new world, where the undead look and act like the rest of us, where zombies can blend in with the crowd.
To protect us from an enemy we can't see until it's too late, we've given the Bag Men unlimited power to decide who lives and who dies. This christmas, the house is not silent. Something is stirring.
This is a shorter novella about a new world where the zombies act just like humans like you or me, until they decide to eat your brains. It’s a shorter work, and took me much longer to read then it should have based upon the length.
The book has some back and forth between the past and the present (most of the time this didn’t make much sense to me as far as further the plot was concerned), but then at the end, everything got tied together with a nice little twist, with a bit of an opening in case the author decides to turn this into a series.
There’s a lot of characters for such a short story, which made things a bit confusing at times, which is one reason for the three star review, but it’s well edited and the pacing is good.
