#1LineWed - 1LineWednesday - #zombie #mystery

Another Wednesday, another 1 Line Wednesday!  Mystery and zombie - mystery - horror today! And a tid-bit from my upcoming book, Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter -- a hint at the special inclusions you'll get with the story!

 Today's guest 1 Line is from Luke Murphy, author of Dead Man's Hand... 

Dead Man’s Hand takes readers inside the head of Calvin Watters, a sadistically violent African-American Las Vegas debt-collector, who was once a rising football star, now a murder suspect on the run.

About the Book:

 What happens when the deck is stacked against you…

From NFL rising-star prospect to wanted fugitive, Calvin Watters is a sadistic African-American Las Vegas debt-collector framed by a murderer who, like the Vegas Police, finds him to be the perfect fall-guy.

…and the cards don't fall your way?

When the brutal slaying of a prominent casino owner is followed by the murder of a well-known bookie, Detective Dale Dayton is thrown into the middle of a highly political case and leads the largest homicide investigation in Vegas in the last twelve years.

What if you're dealt a Dead Man's Hand?

Against his superiors and better judgment, Dayton is willing to give Calvin one last chance. To redeem himself, Calvin must prove his innocence by finding the real killer, while avoiding the LVMPD, as well as protect the woman he loves from a professional assassin hired to silence them.

 1Line from Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter ( New 2nd edition & new cover!)

For those who like a bit of gore with their zombies and horror - and yes, this line is true - taken from the actual 1892 inquest testimony.
This is one of the opening lines in the book. (There is a real-life or related quote at the top of each chapter so you get the actual history, too.) 

Q. Did you see his eyeball hanging out?

A. No sir.
—Lizzie Borden at inquest, August 9-11, 1892, 
Fall River Courtroom

About the Book:

What if Lizzie Borden did do it... because she had no other choice??

Every family has its secrets…
One hot August morning in 1892, Lizzie Borden picked up an axe and murdered her father and stepmother. Newspapers claim she did it for the oldest of reasons: family conflicts, jealousy and greed. But what if her parents were already dead? What if Lizzie slaughtered them because they’d become zombies?

    Thrust into a horrific world where the walking dead are part of a shocking conspiracy to infect not only Fall River, Massachusetts, but also the world beyond, Lizzie battles to protect her sister, Emma, and her hometown from nightmarish ghouls and the evil forces controlling them.
