Publisher's Summary

As the flames of war threaten to engulf the globe, a new threat emerges. A deadly flu, the like of which no one has ever seen or imagined, relentlessly spreads, gripping the world by the throat and slowly squeezing the life from humanity. Eight soldiers, accustomed to operating below the radar, carrying out the dirty work of a modern democracy, become trapped within the carnage of a new and terrifying world. Deniable and completely expendable. That is how their government considers them, and as the dead begin to walk, Stan and his men must fight to survive.

A zombie apocalypse meets Special OPS

A zombie apocalypse meets Special OPS.  An intriguing tale of eight Special Military OPS who operate off the grid with no family or loved ones and whose relationship are cemented in their ability to protect one another’s six.  Their need to know status and undercover work prevents them from realizing what they see on an assignment in the Middle East thus sealing the fate of the world.  A flu-like plaque takes the living and kills them, and then takes the dead and brings them back to walk.

These snipers must attempt to rescue a Duke and his family but their attempt keeps them from catching the last plane out of England.  Now they are trapped and must fend for themselves but the kindhearted souls they are, they rescue a small family in a brutal fashion – driving home that life is no longer easy and carefree but full of choices – deadly ones.

I found Bull’s tryst with the walking dead in the hospital restroom funny – nothing I’ve ever read before – and can’t help but visualize a hulking man lying on a severely flattened zombie across the water pipes (he does this to keep from cooking or freezing his flesh).  Who in their right mind would think of this? Then the toilet humor – well, I could have done without that but it was so right somehow.

I found the book action packed and while the first book left a huge cliff-hanger, I would love to read/listen to the next one.  Luke Duffy did an excellent job of creating the characters and building the plot.  It was interesting and accurate military wise.

Andrew Wehrlen did a good job, he’s not my favorite narrator but he did ok.  I think someone with a better English accent would have done better.  He repeated a sentence or two but other than that, he was fine.

No issues with production.

Terrible on so many fronts, not worth anymore of my time. Maybe I should have given it more than three chapters, but I couldn't.
