""There's no such thing as zombies. Of course I know that. But I also know what I saw with my own eyes, and until I find out the truth of it, that's going to haunt me."" Freshman year is supposed to be filled with new experiences, but Jenna Blake's not sure she's ready for all of the changes her life has gone through recently. She lost one close friend to a tragic crime, and two others are now becomming romantically involved. Jenna is further unsettled when a baffling new case presents itself at the medical examiner's office, where she works as an assistant. The Boston area is experiencing a crime wave that includes both major theft and murder. The problem is, each of the criminals is someone that Somerset Medical Center has declared legally dead -- and who has been buried. Jenna has to piece together an explanation for these "zombie crimes." She knows that there's more going on than meets the eye. The dead can't "really" rise from their graves -- or can they? One things for sure...she doesn't want to find out the hard way!
