Publisher's Summary

One drug saved the world. Now, the same drug threatens to destroy it.
Ian Keys's rocket career took him to the top of pharma giant Hemisphere - creator of Necrophage, the drug that paused the outbreak and allowed the infected to live among us as normal. Ian's new position gives him access to secrets. To information the company doesn't want others to know. And now, an anonymous insider has begun feeding him ominous hints. Ian can't say what's wrong at Hemisphere, exactly - only that something is. And that the "cure" the company gave the world might not have been a cure at all. Now men are watching Ian's house. They're following his wife wherever she goes. When he's called to CEO Archibald Burgess's office, he's taken by armed guards - then plied with vague threats. What would happen if Necrophage failed? Burgess asks. What would become of our society if the disease were allowed to progress again ...and all of our well-behaved patients slowly turned feral? There's only one person Ian can take his case to: reporter Alice Frank, who's been trying to blow the whistle on Hemisphere for years. But is there enough time to save what's left of the world...or has the inevitable slide back into chaos already begun?
In this gripping biological technothriller, best-selling authors Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt blend real-world genetic engineering and high-stakes corporate espionage to deliver a heart-pumping race against the clock to save humanity.
Includes a special bonus note read by one of the authors.

Very Tedious!

When selecting Audible books, one of the first places I look is for anything Scott Brick has performed. So, when I saw a Zombie/Walking Dead offering done by Scott, I said, "How bad can it be?". Well, I thought this one was pretty bad. I almost stopped listening around the half-way point, but I had hope it would improve. Ummm.... NOPE!!
I guess I will have to be a bit more careful about selecting Audible purchases just because they are performed by Scott. Had anyone else performed this read, I certainly would have stopped a lot sooner. Maybe I am just "Zombied Out", but I would suggest waiting for a few more reviews before purchasing this book. I can't even imagine that this is book 1 of a series! Good gosh, what more can they say?

Loved it

A zombie book that isn't a recycled story. How refreshing. Neither is is a mindless slasher piece. Interesting, tense and even funny at times. Can't wait till the next one hits audible.

Fantastic concepts

What did you like most about Dead City, Book 1?

The science and concepts of this book are great. The science dumps about Necrophage are so easy to listen to. It's not just another zombie story but a great character driven ride.

What did you like best about this story?

Bobby Baltimore - could have his own book ;)

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Geordash talking to Danny after she's killed him.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me cringe in places but that's what made me turn the pages - a great fast read/listen.

Any additional comments?

These guys are great and their writing is awesome.
