Detective Sara Bellam’s investigations led here.
Dead bodies with no signs of injury.
But their brains were missing.
Pathology revealed lacerations in the nasal passages. Sara remembered reading how ancient Egyptians extracted the brain through the nose prior to mummification.
Could some sicko be re-enacting the practice on live victims?
Sara cringed at the sight of the mouldy, withered corpse.
He had been dead a while.
As Sara stepped over the body, something sent her crashing.
The corpse loomed over her, clutching a silly straw.
Sara screamed as the zombie used it to suck her brain out through her nose.
