For the first time in Killington High School history, the Jackrabbits football team is one win away from the district championship game where they will take on their most vicious rival, the Elmwood Heights Badgers. But on game day, bad-boy star quarterback Cole Logan is brutally attacked by three masked men. With the stakes so high, Cole is determined to play despite his injuries, but his coach refuses to allow it.

That night on the way to the game the Jackrabbits' bus crashes, killing all of Coles' teammates. When he learns the steroid-crazed Badgers are responsible, he is bent on payback and turns to a mysterious fan skilled in black magic to resurrect the team. But even in the spirit world there are hitches. The Jackrabbits are brought back to life, but unless they win the final game against their murderous rival, the team is destined for hell. In a desperate race against time, with only his coach's clever daughter to assist him, Cole must lead his zombie team to victory...or risk their eternal damnation and violent consequences for everyone in town.

With a fast-paced plot that twists, turns, and shocks, vibrant characters who pack an emotional punch, and plenty of dark humor, Play Dead is a compulsively readable thriller that reflects the national obsession with football and the growing fascination with the undead.

    " Fun book' well written with a twist on the traditional zombie story mixed with Texas football. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimmyh | 1/30/2014

    " It took me until page 105 to really get into this one, the scene just after the bus crash. From there on it was hard to put down. Not necessarily gory, but, definitely a dark and funny book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 1/20/2014

    " Could have been a great book - it's a fantastic premise. But, the author chose very limited character development. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 1/18/2014

    " An undead high school football team plays a championship game against their biggest rivals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lora | 1/11/2014

    " This was a fun read. Predictable, but ultimately a good first comical mystery by Ryan Brown. Of course I'm a football fan, so anything about Texas football ... even zombie football ... is fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 1/1/2014

    " This novel is exactly what you think it is - a fluffy, gory romp. Some great one-liners, though the characterization of Savannah wasn't very believable. Maybe that's because her character was seen through the lens of a teenage boy? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista Ivy | 12/23/2013

    " an original zombie book. good plot but the characters were not fully developed at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tressa | 12/19/2013

    " This is a pleasant if not groundbreaking book on zombies. There is NOTHING new in this book, but if you want to pass the time with a lighthearted story about a high school zombie football team, by all means read Play Dead. That's all I have to say about it. "

    " Unique and fun. I enjoyed talking about this with my daughter at night. "

    " Not a terrible read, but this author needs to learn how to end a story. I will try him again. "

    " Nothing goes together better than zombies and football!! I found Play Dead to be a little scary but a lot funny. If you like Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland then pick it up. "
