Book #9 - Necropolis

51Q7OYeBOCL._SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_It starts fast, and I was slightly lost for some time, but I came to really enjoy Necropolis. A NYC detective comes back to life, after being dead for 40 years. He and his wife were killed in a robbery and he tries to re-integrate into society.

Apparently NYC is cut off from the world. At some point some of the dead came back to life from cemeteries, and were noted by their white hair and gold eyes. It was suspected this was a virus of some sort and the city was closed, with large parts of NJ and surrounding areas bombed into a wasteland.

Donner the detective comes back, wanting to investigate his death, and at the same time, we see him manipulated into taking a case privately as the scientists in the corporation providing security for and mostly controlling the city, are being killed. It's a wild ride, with interesting implications as some people come back to life, some don't, and all the reborns are hated and outcasts.

An evil scientist thriller, but a fun one.
