J.R. Broadwater about this book: I'm a huge fan of noir, more specifically urban fantasy like the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher or the Joe Pitt Casefiles by Charlie Huston. I wanted to do my own take on the genre, but this time put it in a sci-fi setting. I thought it would be fun to take classic horror monsters and give them a sci-fi spin. For the first book in the series, You Only Die Twice, I decided to go with zombies. These aren't just the kind of zombies found in Walking Dead or a Romero picture; these are techno-zombies, animated using nano-technology.
Our hero, Clay Colt, has 48 hours to find out who is reanimating the dead and using them to commit crimes otherwise the Kharta'an Empire, considered to be the best warriors in the entire galaxy, will declare war on Earth. To the Kharta'an, desecration of the dead is blaspheme, and the mad scientist behind the zombies chose the son of the Kharta'an's Executor to reanimate and go on a bloody rampage through Buenos Aries. You Only Die Twice is a fast paced "popcorn" novel for people who want a lot of action and humor but don't have a ton of time to read. I really hope you'll check it out.
