Josh is by far the best zombie Torcher around. At least, he is in his virtual-reality zombie-hunting game. Zombies haven't existed in the real world in more than fifteen years, and the battle to defeat the devastating zombie epidemic is now the stuff of history lessons. Or so it seems. When Josh accepts a coveted invitation to join an underground gaming league in the dark, forgotten tunnels of the city, he soon realises that hunting zombies is not all fun and games. Real blood is spilling, members of the team are disappearing and the zombies in the game are acting strange. And then there's the matter of a mysterious drug called Z . . . This darkly thrilling teen novel will have you holding your breath as you turn every page.
