Liv finds she is now a ZOMBIE as well, but not the shambling corpse Hollywood always depicts. While she stays unnaturally pale and without a heartbeat, Liv realizes she can appear alive and human to the world at large that is totally unaware of the existence of zombies as a reality. The catch to the continuing the deception of life is that she must consume HUMAN BRAINS! For if she does not digest brains she will become more and more like the mindless flesh eating zombies of legend and popular media! With her life turned upside down, Liv gives up on her dream of being a doctor and takes a job as a city coroner. The strategic upside to this flip in careers is that she has a buffet of human brains right before her everyday as corpses are delivered to the morgue for autopsy examinations. It is of course a relief to Liv that she doesn’t have to fight the urge to kill a living human being for brains. Soon her boss in the coroner’s office, Ravi, discovers Liv is a real live (or rather undead) zombie! But her fear of her secret getting out is put at ease, for Ravi has long had a theory that zombies existed and is fascinated by Liv’s condition. He becomes her new closest friend. When the two realize that Liv gains flashes of memory from the consumed brains of the murder victims that come through the morgue that offer insight into open cases, they pass her off to the homicide department as a psychic! Liv also finds she takes on some of the victims’ wide variety of traits to comical effect! She begins to help a struggling detective close cases but when things get dangerous Liv is shocked to gain zombie powers that escalate into inhuman strength and invulnerability to deadly attack! When what she sarcastically calls “Zombie Rage Mode” kicks in her eyes turn bloody red and she loses control. But she learns to maintain her appearances and things are going well for Liv until a stranger named BLAINE walks into her life. Blaine is also a zombie, but in life he was a drug dealer, and he too was at the party Liv attended that was invaded by zombies. At first Liv can’t get a true read on him, but it doesn’t take long for her to suspect Blaine is at the heart of something very bad that is growing in the city. She has the unsettling feeling that zombies are not going to be as rare as she had hoped and certainly not in control of their brain lusting appetites.
