Kate and Michael, 20-something housemates working at the same Trader Joe’s supermarket, are thoroughly screwed when people start turning into zombies at their house party in the Oakland hills. The zombie plague is a sexually transmitted disease, turning its victims into shambling, horny, voracious killers.
Thrust into extremes by the unfolding tragedy, Kate and Michael are forced to confront the decisions they’ve made, and their fears of commitment, while trying to stay alive. Michael convinces Kate to meet him in the one place in the Bay Area that’s likely to be safe and secure from the zombie hordes: Alcatraz. But can they stay human long enough?

"In The Loving Dead, Amelia Beamer gives us a zombie novel like none other. Crisp, smooth and stylish, it zips along from scene to scene, accumulating tension, humor, and insight as it accelerates. It is also comic and sexy, a combination I find irresistible.” (Peter Straub)
I thought this was going to be a novel "twist" on the zombie genre. The Loving Dead is basically a women's adult novel with the backdrop of the zombie apocolypse. The book is constantly referring to sex and the zombies are a very small part of the story. A waste of a credit.
