Dead Low Tide—Do the Dead Stay Dead? (Illuminate YA, 2019)

A zombie in a creek . . .A “body snatching” . . . A mysterious warning from the grave . . . Are there “walking dead” stumbling loose in the swamps around Savannah?

Do the dead stay dead? Hours before the start of Savannah’s Zombie Crawl, Nick and his sister investigate the rumors that one of the “walking-dead” comes alive on Halloween night. After hours of slapping mosquitoes the pair prepares to leave the old fishing shack and head back to their condo. With his sister in the canoe and Nick on the dock a body floats up from the dark depths of the creek and snatches Wendy!

No one believes Nick when he claims that the corpse of Heidi May Laveau pulled his sister away in a canoe—even after Wendy proves impossible to find. But this body-snatcher has a message for Nick from “beyond the grave.” Now he faces the difficult task of sorting fact from fiction as he seeks to discover the truth about the “walking dead” before his worst fears come true.

What is the theme of Dead Low Tide

What if bodies in the grave do not stay in the grave?

“While some were burying a man they threw his body into Elisha’s tomb. When the body touched Elisha’s bones, the man came to life and stood up on his feet.” (Book of Kings 13:21)

“The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs and appeared to many people.” (Matthew 27:52)

Dead Low Tide points readers back to earlier accounts of “dead men walking” mentioned in the Bible.
