Texas? Toast. Battered by five cataclysmic hurricanes in three weeks, the Texas Gulf Coast and half of the Lone Star State is reeling from the worst devastation in history. Thousands are dead or dying-but the worst is only beginning. Amid the wreckage, something unimaginable is happening: a deadly virus has broken out, returning the dead to life-with an insatiable hunger for human flesh. The nightmare begins . . . Within hours, the plague has spread all over Texas. San Antonio police officer Eddie Hudson finds his city overrun by a voracious army of the living dead. Along with a small group of survivors, Eddie must fight off the savage horde in a race to save his family. Hell on Earth. There's no place to run. No place to hide. The zombie horde is growing as the virus runs more rampant. Eddie knows he has to find a way to destroy these walking horrors . . . but he doesn't know the price he will have to pay.

    " Interesting but quite superhuman. Excessive action. The protagonist never slept. He should have run out of adrenal hormones early in the book. "

    " quick read. Lots of action. Enjoyed the series a lot. The first book is not as enjoyable as the second one in the series for me though because the cast of characters was very small and the time period very constrained.

    Still one of my favorite authors in the genre. "
