Death's Dominion by Simon P. Clark
Today science raises the dead to serve the living, but humanity begins to despise the risen dead who toil among them. After all, what does it feel like to shake hands with a corpse? Or converse with a man who died last year? Humankind vows to destroy every last one of its 'monsters'. Soldiers and civilians alike destroy these gentle creatures in a terrifying killing spree. The monsters can't fight back, it's not in their nature, and when caught they must submit to their destruction. Until one of them retaliates against humanity with shocking brutality. Doctor Paul Marais will discover that Dominion is far more than just a killing machine. In this domain, death isn't always the victor.
