Author Stefan Petrucha is offering a pdf excerpt of his new book Dead Mann Running, book two in his Hessius Mann series.
Here's the synopsis for book one, Dead Mann Walking, for those of you who haven't read it (and don't want possible spoilers).
After Hessius Mann was convicted of his wife's murder, suppressed evidence came to light and the verdict was overturned-too bad he was already executed. But thanks to the miracles of modern science Hessius was brought back to life. Sort of.
Now that he's joined the ranks of Fort Hammer's pulse-challenged population, Hessius attempts to make a "living" as a private investigator. But when a missing persons case leads to a few zombies cut to pieces, Hessius starts thinking that someone's giving him the run-around-and it's not like he's in any condition to make a quick getaway...You can read the synopsis for book two on his website.
