The city of River’s Edge has been quarantined due to a rodent-borne rabies outbreak. But it quickly becomes clear to the citizens that the infection is something much, much worse than rabies....
The townsfolk are attacked and fed upon by packs of the living dead. Labeling the infected residents “bees” for their tendency to travel in swarms, Gavin and Benny attempt to survive the chaos in River’s Edge while making their way north in search of sanctuary. No one knows what waits outside the quarantined zone, but Gavin and Benny know that to survive, they must escape.
Kevin Stillwell delivers a superb performance of the apocalyptic novel Dead Meat, by Christopher Williams and Patrick Williams. His clear, steady voice creates the perfect atmosphere for a story packed with thrills and horror. A rabies outbreak leads to a city called River’s Edge being quarantined, but the problem is much bigger than rats: the living dead begin cropping up in swarms, hungering for human flesh. Gavin and Benny attempt to journey north to find a safe haven. What awaits them beyond the quarantine zone?

Weird and Brutal!
Although I am not too deeply impressed with this book I will say I would not change anything in it either. To me the characters in the end were nothing more than cowardly psychopaths, perhaps this would be the reality of facing a outbreak, executions/extinction by the government, and a byproduct of nonstop fear and stress but just did not settle right with me. Perhaps this is the perfect Zombie book for all the bullies living in today's society.
Work on my own humanity.
