A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he could be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang…but a bite.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This has to be one of the best traditional zombie tales I've ever read... This is a zombie book for the ages. Seattle Post Intelligencer

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gee | 2/20/2014

    " A true roller coaster of a book. Give a star for a compelling sample, take one for a slow start, give one for an intriguing premise, take one for ridiculous characters, give one for good pacing and take one for getting all political. I wanted to take another star for an utterly predictable ending, but making this a 3-star seems a bit harsh - it's 3 stars on a normal scale but 4 on a Zombie Fiction scale. Hell, maybe 4.5. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven Simpson | 2/17/2014

    " This was a great book I really enjoyed it it was the usual virus breaks out (but this was with a little twist. It had a serial killer, mad scientist, hard as psychologically damaged cop, love story attempted containment and thousands of the liviung dead attacking residents of stebbins county. Ive read the first to books from Jonathan Maberrys rot and ruin series and they where great, but this was my the best one so far and I highly recommend it to all the zombie lovers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruben | 2/9/2014

    " Once again, Maberry does not disappoint. I didn't like the way the book started...kinda slow and I was a little iffy on the characters, but once you get the ball rolling, this take on zombie infestation was like an avalanche! Great new take on how the world ends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 2/2/2014

    " Not bad. What is it with the zombie stories (and movies) these days? The characters in the book have heard of them yet don't know the rules for killing them. Also the author describes teh crazy of the main antagonist in almost pornographic detail. That's some seriously detailed descriptions of mental illness. In the end I am just grateful to not hear yet another explanation of kuru. "

    " Was I the only one who saw the complete social commentary in this book? The characters questioning the government's power and what they can and can't do...anyway Jonathan Maberry illustrates that he is certainly a master at writing zombies. A very exciting read. "

    " Thoroughly enjoyed this book--it was a fast-paced read. I'd like to see this turned into a movie! How many different zombie storylines can this guy come up with and still make it an enjoyable reading experience? "
