The Broken Ones (Compact Disc)
The world has descended into chaos. On the surface, everything looks the same, yet the unthinkable has happened. The dead have risen.
Everyone is haunted by a relative, friend, spouse, or stranger, and these spirits are unshakeable, silent and watching. Governments the world over fail to deal with the epidemic. Crime is rife, and murders commonplace. But who is responsible: the ghosts or the people?
Finding out is where Detective Oscar Mariani comes in. He stumbles onto a case that cuts through his apathy. A ritualistic, brutal serial killer is at work murdering young women and the evidence implicates those in high places. If Mariani can solve the case, and keep alive himself, he may be able to exorcise his own ghostly shadow, a dead young man who might have a message Mariani needs to hear.
