Way of the Barefoot Zombie ( Tomes of the Dead )

The markets are hungry for a sacrifice!

On a private island in the Caribbean business guru, Doc Papa, has reinvented the Zombie as a role model for the super-rich. The world’s business elite come to St Ignatius to study the Way of the Barefoot Zombie and interact with a captive colony of Zombies. They live with them, dress like them and act like them in order to free their own Inner Zombies. Once they’ve learned to harness the Zombie’s single minded lust for blood nothing will stop them from making a killing on the global markets.

However, Doc Papa’s plans for dominating the world’s business arena go awry when the island is infiltrated by operatives from the Zombie Liberation Front and a rogue priestess.

Real Voodoo and social satire collide in this gore drenched tale of greed and global profit.
