About the Book

Distraught over the death of his wife and daughter, Adam Devlin leave the society he no longer wishes to belong. He purchases a decommissioned prison farm and with his sons and friends, who join him in his self-imposed exile, they live, safe and secure, away from the madness of crime-filled cities and a techno-crazed population. Until the end of their world begins.

The Ophidian Virus spreads to all corners of the planet, reactivating the Dead who then attack and eat the flesh of the living. In the aftermath, the survivors of the Colony train Soldiers to hunt and kill the reanimated Dead. Tya Maxell is one such Soldier.

During a Status Challenge against a former First Killer, Tya uncovers a devastating secret: that the society she grew up in was based on a lie. Escaping from the Colony with a prey-child she saves from the Dead, Tya teams up with other survivors who are determined to bring an end to the perpetrators of the greatest hoax on the planet. She must Challenge the corrupt President of the Javier Corporation, who uses the Dead to control the survivors of the Plague. In a life or death battle-not only against the Dead, but against a man who will fight to preserve his power at any cost-Tya must prevail, or all will be lost.

About the Author

Canadian Author Pam Hanes was born in Ottawa, Ontario on July 20, 1961. Growing up with an insatiable thirst to bury herself into any book which caught her interest, she became an avid reader of Anne McCaffrey (The Dragonriders of Pern Series), Jean Auyl (Earth's Children Series), Stephen King (the master of Horror) and any book in the Horror/Science Fiction/Fantasy Genre. She became fascinated with the Zombie culture after watching the movie 'Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things' (also known as Revenge of the Living Dead, Things From the Dead, and Zreaks), a 1972 comedic horror film directed by Bob Clark. Her interest in the Living Dead continued after watching Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Dawn of the Dead (1978 and 2004) by filmmaker George A. Romero. She composed a story 'Giganotosaurus Trouble' for the National Novel Writing Month, (NaNoWriMo), where her passion for story telling took flight.

'Killer in Black' is her first novel based on the 'Zombie' theme. She is now editing her second novel, 'A Meeting of the Minds', an alien-human romance, while writing her second 'Zombie' novel, 'Time and Again'.
