Brandon Walker, once the sheriff of Pima County, Arizona, no longer feels he has purpose. A reluctant retiree living in the long shadow of his wife, Diana Ladd, a successful author of true-crime books, he is bored with life. Salvation comes with an invitation to join The Last Chance, an exclusive fraternity of former cops and forensic experts who look into unsolved murders. One case is staring Brandon in the face with cold, dead, entreating eyes, an investigation that may have been mishandled by his department when he was a young lawman. For more than 30 years, the brutal murder of a local Papago girl has remained a mystery.

The trail of the killer soon leads Brandon into a strange world at the unlikely border between forensic science and tribal mysticism: a place where evil hides behind a perfect facade. Now the seeds of terror sown three decades earlier are bearing awful fruit. A forgotten homicide in the Arizona desert is the beginning of a nightmare that is about to ensnare Brandon, the only person still alive who can unravel a truth more frightening than he ever imagined.

A novel that bristles with electrifying intensity and is alive with the breathtaking atmosphere and rich characterizations that have become J. A. Jance trademarks, Day of the Dead is a gripping and extraordinary journey into the darkness and the author's most spellbinding thriller to date.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete Grevie | 2/18/2014

    " I really liked the Walking Dead TV show, so I decided to try the graphic novels. I wasn't sure I was going to like the graphic novels since I haven't really been interested in comic books. I decided to try it anyway since my co-workers said they really like reading them. I actually don't mind reading the graphic novels. There is a decent amount of dialogue going on. I recommend the graphic novels/comics to anyone who likes the show or who is interested in Zombies. "

    " Tough to rate in a genre you've just begun, i.e. graphic novels, but this particular piece had good illustrations, the right amount of drama and character development with that hunger (excuse the zombie pun ;) at the end for more. A good first pick in my opinion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ltlmer2 | 2/3/2014

    " I have only rarely read graphic novels, but wanted to check this one out since I love the show so much. The graphic novel is great. As gripping as the show (but quite different in the storyline). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Dowd | 12/20/2013

    " I loved the show and I figured this would be a nice starting off point for my first true comic read ever. What can I say, I'm a late bloomer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethann | 12/16/2013

    " I wanted to read this, since I love the series so much. I knew there were some differences, but I found myself skimming a lot of it because I knew many of the main characters. I was surprised by a few of the twists, though. I am looking forward to the next one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Arney | 12/16/2013

    " You MUST read this comic if you like zombie or survival stories at all. Know that this is not a kids comic, it is vicious and brutal, and totally awesome! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Walker | 11/22/2013

    " The writing can get kind of stilted and wooden, but the premise is great and well executed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ela | 11/9/2013

    " It's my first graphic novel and first book about zombies. I like characters, their own stories and their way of fighting to stay alive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 10/30/2013

    " I love The Walking Dead. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 An | 8/2/2013

    " Definitely a bit different from the series and better. :) There's never a dull moment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria | 7/27/2013

    " Love the show, and so far they have remained true to the graphic novel. Definitely going to read more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Lakes International Comic Art Festival | 6/26/2013

    " Classic story of survivors after an apocalypse. Reminded me of the 70s TV series The Survivors. Robert Kirkman's endless twists and turns keep you gripped by the story of Rick Grimes' fight to keep his family safe in a world populated by endless zombies. Paul "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 5/21/2013

    " Enjoyed this far more than the first 2 episodes of the TV show. Actually made me want to go back and see if I could invest in that world. The art is well done and the story line, while slightly generic zombie story, gives the reader exactly what they are looking for in an undead narrative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephan Davis | 4/2/2013

    " This series is amazing. It never stops being amazing. It only gets better. Read this volume, and you will be hooked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ursula Nelson | 1/15/2013

    " I enjoyed it. I am a huge fan of the TV series. The TV show and the comics are different but I enjoy them both. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 1/14/2013

    " My first graphic novel. Would I have liked it as much if I wasn't already a fan of the show? Who knows. Quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juliana | 3/20/2012

    " I can see why this graphic novel would translate so well to a television series. It is a great story--good characters, fine art. Makes me think back the day when I was a kid and I read Ripley's and other ghost story/horror comics. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dustin | 8/3/2011

    " Fantastic series. If you like zombie fiction you need to read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hubjeanne | 5/23/2011

    " Excellent book. Love the Tucson area so always enjoy Jance's books but this has been the best by far that I've read so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 5/2/2011

    " I enjoyed this book somewhat more than the other Brandon Walker book I read because I knew what to expect. This series of books pale in comparison to her Beaumont and Brady series, however. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denise | 4/23/2011

    " So far, much more grizzly in terms of describing the murders and the perps than the Joanna Brady series. I think I will stick to those titles only in the future.

    Good sense of place in describing Tucson and Phoenix and the Tohono O'odham Indians and their culture. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 4/18/2011

    " I love the J.P. Beaumont series, so thought I'd try the Walker Family books. They are different, but amazig!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 3/5/2011

    " I read this book out of order, so I missed some of the things that happened in book 2. That will spoil it somewhat, since I have a good idea what will happen.

    Other than that, this is a good boo. Recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacksonjh | 2/10/2011

    " Brandon Walker Series, # . Serial murder, Indian & Mexican teenage-girl orphans, Indian culture and language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/1/2011

    " While this book is a little shocking, it is suspenseful and compelling "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darlene | 1/22/2011

    " Very good book...all of J . A. Jance's books are great "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 12/16/2010

    " I liked the Native American lore but this was too gruesome for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 9/23/2010

    " This is the third book I've read by this author. The first, I loved (Damage Control); the second, I hated (Web of Evil); this one, I liked well enough to go for a fourth. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sandra | 9/12/2010

    " I usually really like Jance, but the abuse and violence in this mystery was too much for me (and I read many mysteries without problem). Just the first third left me feeling dirty and depressed, so I read the ending and left it at that. Yuck! "
