Product Description: Something peculiar is happening. While the city is enduring a heat wave, people are finding that their electric appliances won't stay switched off. And everyone has a blinding headache. Then the terrible news breaks – in the city morgue, the newly dead are waking.
David always knew his wife was far too good for him. But he never know how lost he'd be without her until the night she died. Now she's gone and he's alone. But when he goes to identify her body, she opens her eye....
Across the city, grieving families find themselves able to see their loved ones one last time. But are these creatures really them? How long can this last? And what deadly price will they have to pay for the chance to see their spouses and children just one more time?<
