Faced with an overwhelming infestation of living dead on the US mainland, the US Pacific Fleet manages a strategic withdrawal of civilians and supplies. Aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, Dr. Henry Damico advises the remnants of the civilian government and military leadership on how to survive in a world overrun with zombies.
Meanwhile Henry's wife, Kelly, has spent the apocalypse on the front lines, caring for desperate civilians in a clinic defended by the military. When the military network of convoys tasked with retrieving refugees scattered throughout the city begins to break down, Sergeant First Class Carl Harvey must lead the last convoy into San Diego, and the odds are clearly not in his favor....

Gripping and Terrifying; Would Make a Great Movie

When a friend told me her boyfriend had written a novel, I checked it out on a whim. I expected something amateurish, but was pleasantly surprised to find a harrowing, gripping tale of horror both visceral and existential. I was very impressed with the author's extensive knowledge of military hardware, procedure, and tactics, and also with the consideration paid to how a zombie apocalypse might actually play out on the world stage.

I was initially uncertain about one major change to the "zombie rules" (namely, that *everyone* who dies, of any cause, will reanimate), but I found this wasn't a hurdle to my enjoyment. The battle scenes remained harrowing, the pathos was real, and the pacing was excellent; I suspect that the author has some experience with writing screenplays. This book would make a great movie.
