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.

Excellent Narration, Good Thriller

What made the experience of listening to Dead City, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

Scott Brick does an excellent job narrating this story and brings the characters to life.


What did you like best about this story?

The world was an interesting premise where there was a zombie outbreak but it had been halted in its tracks.


Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The only other story I've heard Scott Brick narrate was a companion story to this one, so it was performed in the exact same style.


Any additional comments?

The story was a little predictable but did a good job of moving forward at a quick pace and is an easy listen at just over 12 hours long.

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?
