Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-09-15)

A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a drug intended to keep his brain animate while his body rots in the grave. But the drug malfunctions, and the result is-surprise!-a zombie who makes a snack out of the mortician servicing his corpse. Of course, he's contagious, has passed on the infection, and-voila!-the zombie plague has begun. As it turns out, this particular infestation was orchestrated by the Reagan administration when it captured the Project Lucifer documents from the Soviet Union.

Lucifer engineered the creation of "metabolically mini mali zed ambulatory organic hosts". Code for zombies? You bet. This is yet another government-engineered zombie plague. Maberry (Patient Zero), who has ended the world in previous novels, will not disappoint his fans with his latest mishmash of crime noir, horror, and gore. While zombie-savvy readers may become impatient at the length of time it takes the heroes to figure out that an apocalypse is in the offing-really, haven't they ever seen a George Romero film?-Maberry enthusiasts will love it.
