Broderick "Brodie" Booster and his valet Reeves, who likes to describe himself as a gentleman's gentleman, are the heroes of this story.
The objective is to get rid of the "revenants" which is just a polite euphemism for full-fleged zombies in varying states of rot & decay, out there to eat you.
If you happen to know the 'Jeeves and Wooster' stories by P.G. Wodehouse, you almost know the two main characters of this novella. But I bet those two never had to deal with the undead. Well, our chaps are facing this very problem and are going to tackle it in their own inimitable style (and with the help of a jaw saw I still stand in awe of). What there is to do, they learn from Booster's aunt Gertrude, who has a little handicap: She is already dead for two weeks when she enters the stage.
Troy Blackford has decided to bring together these two different genres and by doing so he hit the the center of my humor, spot on. Seldom did I laugh so much while reading a story. Anyone who has a shred of black humor should read this read. I sincerely hope that the two characters will be back some day experiencing more hilarious adventures like this.
