The Quiet Dead by Darke Conteur

SFC member Darke Conteur’s latest publication, The Quiet Dead, is a zombie thriller!

In the middle of a deadly pandemic, forty-five-year-old Jolene Sadler hides out at her trailer in Wasaga Beach with her daughter and a few neighbours. Mainly it’s to get away from her abusive ex, but as the world falls apart, it becomes a refuge where they can ride out the pandemic in relative security, but things are never what they seem.

The world descends into a chaotic madness and desperation seeps into the camp along with the virus. Rumours spread that the illness makes people go mad, but Jolene witnesses another frighting affliction firsthand; resurrection of the dead. To complicate matters, her ex arrives at the campground and she is forced her into an ugly confrontation. Soon, their haven devolves into a graveyard and she and her small group are forced out onto the open road with few supplies and even fewer options.

As her ex and the dead haunt their every step, their journey culminates into a showdown for their lives, but sometimes a bad situation can turn the tide, especially when hopelessness leaves Jolene with only one option.

Available at all ebook retailers.
