Everybody knows how to stop a zombie. You just squeeze the brain – and that’s it.
But how do you stop an epidemic zombie virus that easily can spread all over the world?
What if the boundaries between what you think of as the real world and The Other Side started to crack? What if it was your job to make sure the evils and absurdities of The Other Side stayed on The Other Side for the public good? What if you were eleven years old and your ID card said «Paranormal Agent, resuscitate at own risk»?
Thelma and Tico has just been recruited as paranormal agents when the disaster starts. A zombie virus has mutated and is spreading – fast. If a cure is not found they will be dealing with a global epidemic. And the only way to make a vaccine is to find the original zombie virus DNA – which means finding patient zero. The problem is that patient zero is a viking king who has been dead for a thousand years. Thelma and Tico will have to locate his tomb deep inside a secret underground cathedral. A small mistake can be lethal. Or worse – it can turn them into zombies.
The Zombie Outbreak is the first book in the middle grade series “The Bureau of Non-Events”.
About The Bureau of Non-Event series:
When best friends Thelma and Tico are recruited by the ancient and secretive Bureau of Non-Events, the first thing they learn is that practically every myth, fairy tail, urban legend and supernatural phenomena has a basis in reality. It is a lot to take in. But completing the agent training program takes twelve years so there is time. Providing of course that they survive.
In each book Thelma and Tico have to face a new paranormal event – and turn it into a non-event, scare the monsters back into the closet, so to speak, and keep the public safe and blissfully oblivious. They have to deal with aliens, ghouls, numerous species of Scandinavian trolls, giant fire wasps, soul swapping mirrors, an artificial super intelligence that is spreading through smartphones and of course the countless manifestations of the undead.
