When troops die faster than they can be replaced, the military raises its veterans from the dead—including Evie’s grandfather. Evie copes with his sudden appearance and departure, but her grandfather’s return drives Evie’s mother to the edge of sanity. Evie will find a way to help and die—or kill—trying. With bonus story "Blacktop."
