Bodacious Creed: a Steampunk Zombie Western (The Adventures of Bodacious Creed Book 1)
by Jonathan Fesmire
U.S. Marshal James Creed has known loss, starting from the untimely death of his wife and daughter in a sudden fire. One day in 1876 the killer Corwin Blake guns him down.
Creed awakes, resurrected in a basement laboratory beneath a brothel. His instincts drive him to protect the city of Santa Cruz, California, from the outlaws it harbors while searching for Blake.
He uncovers a criminal organization determined to use resurrection technology for its own ends. The former marshal, now faster, stronger, and a more deadly shot than ever, must work with a brothel madam, a bounty hunter, and the remaining marshals to uncover the criminal syndicate before they can misuse the machines of rebirth and create more mindless zombies. Meanwhile, he must also stop Blake, before the outlaw kills the only people he cares about.
His own death can wait.
