Introducing...City of the Dead by Brian Keene
Standing next to their battered Humvee, Jim, Martin and Frankie stared into the distance. A cemetery stretched off to the horizon along both sides of New Jersey's Garden State Parkway, and the highway cut right through the graveyard's center.

Tombs and crypts also dotted the landscape, but the sheer number of gravestones almost overwhelmed them.
