In L.A. practicing law can be hell. Especially if you’re dead.
In an increasingly hellacious L.A., zombie criminal lawyer Mallory Caine defends a vampire hooker accused of the crime Mallory herself committed, even as a zombie-killer closes in and the love of her former life comes back as the Deputy DA she must oppose. And as Lucifer himself begins setting up L.A. as his headquarters for a new attack on heaven and earth, Mallory slowly discovers she may be the one who has to stop him.
“Hungry For Justice – And Brains”: Meet Mallory Caine. Attorney at law. Zombie at large. She’s not like those “Living Dead” losers you see in the movies. She doesn’t slobber, drool, or lurch – she’s smart, stylish, and sexy. Sure, she’s a zombie and a lawyer but, hey, a girl’s got to eat.
When Mallory’s not in the courtroom, going head to head with her ex-boyfriend, killer-prosecutor Aaron Argula, she’s in the seedy streets of Hollywood, hunting brain after brain. That is, until some psycho starts hunting zombie after zombie…
“The Defense Never Rests – In Peace”: The undead are decapitated, a letter “Z” carved in their flesh. Mallory doesn’t want to lose her head, but she’s worried. Like many lawyers in L.A., she doesn’t have a soul – a side effect of being a zombie, not a defence attorney.
If Mallory dies before she gets her soul back, she goes straight to hell. No appeals. Objection overruled. If the killer isn’t stopped, it’s case closed for zombies everywhere. But Mallory is an undying champion of justice, and she won’t go down – without a bite…
