As a prisoner in one of the most brutal facilities imaginable, Shane Bridge thought that he'd seen it all. Surrounded by murderers, rapists, gangsters, and pedophiles, Shane had managed to survive his three years in one piece. With parole just around the corner, and his wife and daughter at home awaiting his return, Shane has high hopes for the future. When a new inmate is brought in, carrying with him a deadly virus, Shane soon realizes that his plans, his release, and his very survival are in jeopardy. With the virus spreading, turning guards and inmates into flesh-eating zombies, it's up to a few survivors to figure out how to escape the facility, how to get along - and how to stay alive.

This story is exactly what you'd imagine a zombie outbreak inside a male prison would be like. I haven't been to prison, but from watching several episodes of "Lockup," the setting and interactions seem pretty accurate. At a little less than 6 hours, it's hard to become emotionally invested in characters. But I would buy book 2, just to see how the story goes. I think the second book will be even better, considering there will be more locations. (This entire book is inside the prison) *SPOILER* The only scene that I thought didn't fit, was the helicopter. If I were a helicopter pilot, with a functioning helicopter, and the zombie apocalypse was upon us, I think the very last place in the world I'd be, is outside of a prison, waiting to pick up "escaped" convicts.
The narrator did a fine job. The editing needs a little tweaking, but that's no fault of the narrator's. At 00:57:19 "it appeared that he had all the troubles in the world hanging over him" was said twice. At 01:48:00 "Shane said" was said twice. There were numerous awkward pauses. It was like the long pause before a new chapter is announced, but there were no new chapters announced. Just in the middle of a scene, there was a long pause. But this is all editing. No fault of the narrator or author.
If possible, I would give this book a rating of 4.5 stars. Since there's no halves, I'll be generous and round up to 5.
