Not that it was easy keeping a live zombie in camp. He made weird noises, and when the chain clanked, we’d start awake, grabbing guns. We finally decided on Valium and a nightly watch schedule. Each of us would get a good night’s sleep at least three nights a week. Until Brian fell asleep during his watch.

"Actually, it would have. We could just have someone with a clean-ish record get arrested on some petty charge and grab it," said Li.

"Twelve cells, maybe four of us who could try. Bad odds," said Lise. "And getting into that bus means getting caught at something much more serious. Not an option. Any more bright ideas?"
