Bob Fingerman draws on the rich tradition of zombie lore, and adds his own particular spin. This quickly paced well-written novel doesn’t skimp on the gore, or gallows humor. The characters in the book are all trapped within a NYC apartment building, and are running low on supplies. Along comes Mona the pariah, who mysteriously seems to be immune to the zombies. In fact, her presence actually repels them. The apartment dwellers beg her to move in with them, so that she may keep them supplied, and therefore alive. Near the end I thought it was turning into Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None
, but . . . well, I wouldn’t want to give anything away.
