America post apocalypse…a toxic wasteland populated by bloodthristy scavengers, mutated animals, and roving bands of organized militias wing for control of civilized society’s leftovers. Housed in small settlements that pepper the wasteland, the survivors of the third world war struggle to rebuild amidst the scourge of sickness and disease and the constant threat of attack from the horrors that roam beyond their rudimentary borders.
But something much worse has risen from the toxic fog, a menace whose ferocity rivals the legendary wrath of Bloody Mary and her Revenant Clan. People say that this new menace is responsible for the Revenant Clan’s sudden disappearance, that Bloody Mary had finally met her match. Or maybe the reports of yellow-red eyes glaring from the darkness were all part of Griff’s mind games.
Thugs, pushers, gangsters, rapists, murderers; Detective Philip Makane thought he’d seen it all until he awoke on the morning of Easter Sunday 2015, to a world filled with bleeding rain, ravenous zombies, a homicidal ghost, and the sudden arrival of two men with extraordinary powers who both claim to be Jesus Christ in the flesh.
“Andre Duza is one of the most exciting new voices in horror fiction. His prose hits like a fist full of razor blades. Get in line early and enjoy the hell out of the ride.” –Brian Keene, Bestselling Author of The Rising and Terminal
“Andre Duza is a new writer who’s serving notice: he’s not going to be afraid to take risks. Count on him for ideas to make you think and images to disturb your sleep.” –Thomas F. Monteleone
“Unique and aggressive… Duza’s narrative style has me hooked!” –Travis Adkins, author of Twilight of the Dead
“Quite possibly the most underrated new author on the scene today.” -Horror Fiction Review
Step into a world filled with racist teenagers, masked assassins, cannibals, a telekinetic hitman, 100 warped Uncle Sams, automobiles with razor-sharp teeth, living graffiti, cartoons that walk and talk, a steroid-addicted pro-athlete, an angry black chic, a washed-up Barbara Walters clone, the threat of a war to end all wars, and a pissed-off zombie bitch out for revenge.
When the police finally capture the number one suspect in the Bloody Mary Murders, a single-mother named Natasha Armstrong, nobody believes her story about her twelve-year search for the real killer, a murderous walking corpse who has no eyes but can still see, who moves like a bad stop-motion incarnation, but does so with ethereal grace. Nobody believes her when she tells them about all the bodies, or the people they used as game for the military-style obstacle courses that Bloody Mary and her soldiers, a ragtag group made up mostly of runaways, would build wherever they’d settle in any given town to recruit more soldiers and prepare for the end of civilization as we know it.
“One cannot read Andre Duza without wondering if boundaries or taboos are a part of his vocabulary. In Dead Bitch Army, Duza sends readers into a dimension without walls, a world where we cease to worry about crossing lines. Shocking… disturbing… but oh so entertaining and well worth our attention.” — John Paul Allen (author, Gifted Trust)
