Publisher's Summary

There are monsters in this world. And they used to be us. Now it's time to euthanize, to survive in a hospice where Emily, a woman haunted by her past, only wants to do her job and be the best mother possible.

Post-infection Chicago. Christmas. Inside The Hospice, Emily and her fellow nurses do their rounds. Here, men and women live out their final days in comfort, segregated from society, and are then humanely terminated before fate turns them into marrow-craving monsters known as "Smilers". Outside these imposing walls, rabid protesters swarm with signs, caught up in the heat of their hatred.

Emily, a woman haunted by her past, only wants to do her job and be the best mother possible. But in a world where mortality means nothing, where guns are drawn in fear and nobody seems safe anymore - at what cost will this pursuit come? And through it all, the soon to be dead remain silent, ever smiling. Such is their curse. 

This emotional, political novel comes from two of horror’s freshest voices, and puts a new spin on an eternal topic: the undead. In the spirit of George A Romero meets Jack Ketchum, Where the Dead Go to Die it is an unforgettable epilogue to the zombie genre, one that will leave you shaken and questioning right from wrong...even when it’s the only right left.

It won't be long before that snow-speckled ground will be salted by blood.

Brutally AWESOME

My heart!! Ugh!! This book!! THIS DARN BOOK!!!
This is the kind of horror I love!! No holding back! No hands to cover your eyes… just pure HORROR! I’m not talking about “blood and guts” kind of Horror, I’m talking about “this sh*t could happen in real life, gut-wrenching, heart-aching” kind of Horror!
I loved it! I absolutely loved it…. Even though it had me weeping!! But hey… that’s when you know it’s good! If a book can make you emotional… you got a winner! This was absolutely a WINNER!!
