Publisher's Summary

And the dead shall rise... Two hellish years. That's how long it's been since the hurricanes flooded the Gulf Coast, and the dead rose up from the ruins. The cities were quarantined; the infected, contained. Any unlucky survivors were left to fend for themselves. A feast for the dead. And the living shall gather... One boatload of refugees manages to make it out alive - but one passenger carries the virus. Within weeks, the zombie epidemic spreads across the globe.
Now, retired U.S. Marshal Ed Moore must lead a group of strangers to safety, searching for sanctuary from the dead. A last chance for the living. Let the battle begin.
In the North Dakota grasslands, bands of survivors converge upon a single outpost. Run by a self-appointed preacher of fierce conviction - and frightening beliefs - it may be humanity's only hope. But Ed Moore and the others refuse to enter a suicide pact. They'd rather stand and fight in the final battle against the zombies. An apocalypse of the dead.

Wow and good grief.

What would have made Apocalypse of the Dead better?

The ending was so ridiculous, way too Jonestown, and really? when does freakin' pervy pedofile behavior fit into a zombie book?.....NEVER...Felt like the author was reaching and not grasping.

Frustrating and disappointing

I was kind of disappointed with this book, maybe I expected a better outcome. This is your typical "zombie story" nothing out of the ordinary, except at times I truly though this story had the same layout as "The Stand" from Stephen King. I felt frustrated time and time again when listening to the monotonous story. The preacher with its followers and their promise of a better live is almost the same as the "walking dude" in Las Vegas extracted from The Stand. I hope I'm wrong, but I think Mr. McKinney read "The Stand" once too many times. Not worth your credit.
