“Kill them or convert them – either way we win.”
A team of mercenaries race to an abandoned mining village to rescue two children held hostage by rogue ex-soldiers. But the kidnappers are a ruse, the real threat more terrifying than any of them could imagine.
Aided by a couple of unsuspecting eco-warriors, mercenary team leader Amber Redgrave must fight to survive against foes that don’t sleep and don’t feel pain.
Now as the body count rises, so do the stakes, and when the dead won’t stay dead, there’s going to be hell to pay.
Whispers about Deadfall…
“Jeffrey hits all the right notes in Deadfall. The novel’s action dashes forward like a ravenous ghoul, building in tension and suspense until at last, with an adept hand, Jeffrey puts the bullet of a finale right between its eyes.” – Dark Scribe Magazine

Empire (2nd Edition)
Author: David Dunwoody
Publisher: Permuted Press / Gallery Books
Release Date: March 16th, 2010
The year is 2112, and humanity is giving up its fight against the zombie hordes. And Death himself has risen in their place — this time, the dead will stay dead.
The crippled U.S. government and its military forces are giving up the century-long fight against an undead plague. Born of an otherworldly energy fused with a deadly virus, the ravaging hordes of zombified humans and animals have no natural enemies. But they do have one supernatural enemy: Death himself.
Descending upon the ghost town of Jefferson Harbor, Louisiana, the Grim Reaper embarks on a bloody campaign to put down the legions that have defied his touch for so long. He will find allies in the city’s last survivors, and a nemesis in a man who wants to harness the force driving the zombies — a man who seeks to rebuild America into an empire of the dead.
