Pre-order DROP DEAD GORGEOUS by Wayne Simmons now!


Drop Dead Gorgeous
by Wayne Simmons

As tattoo artist Star begins to ink her first client on a spring Sunday morning, something goes horribly wrong with the world... Belfast's hungover lapse into a deeper sleep than normal, their sudden deaths causing an unholy mess of crashing cars, smoldering televisions and falling aircraft.

In the chaotic aftermath a group of post-apocalyptic survivors search for purpose in a devastated city. Aging DJ Sean Magee and shifty-eyed Barry Rogan find drunken solace in a hotel bar. Ex-IRA operative Mairead Burns and RIR soldier Roy Beggs form an uneasy alliance to rebuild community life. Elsewhere, a mysterious Preacher Man lures shivering survivors out of the shadows with a promise of redemption.

Choked by the smell of death, Ireland's remaining few begin the journey toward a new life, fear and desperation giving rise to new tensions and dark old habits. But a new threat--as gorgeous as it is deadly--creeps slowly out of life's wreckage. Fueled by feral hunger and a thirst for chaos, the corpses of the beautiful are rising…

"Armed with a devilish wit, quirky dialogue, and a unique, palpable flavor, DROP DEAD GORGEOUS provides readers with a fly-on-the-wall view as the shit gloriously hits the fan in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Where's Bono when you need him?"
--Andre Duza, author of DEAD BITCH ARMY, JESUS FREAKS, and NECRO SEX MACHINE
