Publisher's Summary

A Pound of Flesh, book four in the Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse series, picks up on day nine where In Harm's Way: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse left off.
Outbreak - Day Nine
Reeling from a surprise attack, and with two fires burning out of control, Schriever Air Force Base goes on high alert. Former CDC Scientist Sylvester Fuentes, the apparent target, is killed along with others. Destroyed in the conflagration was the Omega antiserum Fuentes had been working to perfect and just hours prior had tested successfully on one of the recently infected. Meanwhile, returning prematurely from a mission to set off two nukes in the path of an advancing horde of living dead numbering several hundred thousand strong, and with his Delta Force commander Mike Desantos infected and dying from the Omega virus, Cade Grayson is forced to do something no friend should have to do.
As the low rumble of the two nuclear detonations signaling the mission's likely success rolls over Schriever, Delta Force Captain Cade Grayson begins formulating a plan that will send him hurtling on a collision course with the parties responsible for the terrorist attack. Six hundred miles away near Eden, Utah, Duncan Winters hopes to ride out the apocalypse in his brother Logan's remote compound. In Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the New American capitol, Daymon Bush, former BLM firefighter, bides his time with one burning desire: to find his girlfriend Heidi even if it eventually kills him. Will Cade successfully lobby President Clay and embark on a new mission in order to extract his pound of flesh for the loved ones he has lost?

The full narrative now explains what is going on

A Pound of Flesh introduces the reader to a whole new slew of characters.  There are more people, places, and things going on now that we're into day 9 of the virus that has turned most of the world into zombies.  Pound.. is the 4th installment of Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.

Chris Patton has narrated all four of the Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse books and has done a wonderful job in all four.  His voice can have military precision one second and be a soft-spoken non-special forces the next.  Allowing Chesser's words to come alive and flow.  Patton definitely makes these already good books better with his narration.

Usually, once you're as deep as a fourth book if you haven't read any of the others you are completely and totally lost.  That is not the case with this book.  I think books two and three you needed to understand who Cade was and why he was fighting, but in this installment there are so many new things going on that Cades main narrative takes somewhat of a backseat to a great story.

The full narrative now explains what is going on since the apocalypse started and what other people are trying to do about it.  It introduces in more detail the NA (New America) and their leaders and lackeys.  Honestly, when you're four books into a series it's usually hard to introduce new people and plot points -- but somehow Chesser does it with ease.  Not making me feel like it was a new story at all.

Overall, Chesser hits another home run with this one taking the reader along for the ride. If you weren't hooked on the series before, give this book a shot -- I think he'll be able to reel you back in.

Done with this!!

Cannot believe the time and money wasted!

I can tolerate a repetition of zombie apocalypse storylines. What I loathe is an author who not only seems incapable of creating likable protagonists - but has me shouting "What a bitch!" I shocked disbelief at the behavior and dialogue of said supposed lead ish character.

So hate most characters, what else? Needless and disgustingly descriptive passages of gore, feces and other assorted bodily fluids produced by the living and the dead. Young females from adolescent to teen are all pop up characters and really really stupid.

To spend more time is wasting mine. Just don't waste yours. And audible?.... $13.95 is a typical charge for a 10-14 hour listen. This authors first book was that EXCEPT it was 6 hours. The next was the same price at 8 hours. And as the hours move up -you increased the price? This ain't Tolstoy, Koontz, or JK Rowling.
