Zombie, Illinois, by Scott Kenemore

This is not a sequel to Mr. Kenemore's "Zombie, Ohio."   In fact, that it involves zombies at all is a minor detail to a book that's about Chicago, its politics and geography.  The novel intertwines narratives from the three main characters, a reporter for a business paper, a minister, and a drummer, who connect through the experience of chaos following zombie sightings.

Compared to "Zombie, Ohio," this is not terrific, but it is interesting enough.   And folks who aren't interested in zombie fiction will find enough "normal" drama here to keep their interest.
