Overview

The dead have risen. A lethal virus has decimated millions, turning the infected into the walking dead.

Society has crumbled, cities are in flames, and the human race is on the verge of extinction.

Somehow, Mike McKnight has survived. So far. From his cell in a mental institution, he battled the ghosts of his past and the throngs of undead to uncover and retrieve the last vestige of mankind's hope to fight the deadly plague.

Now, from the deck of an aircraft carrier, to the farmlands of the Eastern Shore and the very heart of the nation's capital, Mike carries the hope of an entire race. With him rides the only chance at fighting the spread of the virus, and turning back the tide of infection.

But the undead are changing. They are evolving. Hunting in larger groups and banding together to track their prey, that are more dangerous predators than ever before. To survive, he will have to learn to adapt, and to come to grips with the most important evolution of all: his own.

Meet the Author

I'm not what or who you think. Well, unless you're particularly astute. Or have been spying on me. In the case of the latter, cut it out. It's creepy.

My writing is a symptom of a medical condition: if I don't get the stories out of my head, the skull might actually explode. It's rare, but I think I am managing the condition fairly well.

I enjoy writing for the same reason we all enjoy reading. Escape. Escape from a normal world; escape from the 24 hour news cycle; from bills and deadlines; from traffic and noise. I sink into a little void of creativity and enjoy the ride. But why apocalyptic stuff? Why zombies?

They're fun to read about, they're fun to watch, and they're really fun to write. Why?

Because they put a scary and sometimes amusing face on everyday humans; they take the grocery store clerk, the lawyer and the gas station attendant and they lump them all into the same mold: the mindless, hungry carnivore.

In truth, it's the great equalizer, the zombie novel/movie/comic; it takes a variety of people from a variety of places and turns our oh-too-class-segmented society on its head. Rich, poor, smart, stupid, fat, skinny...they're all the same. We're left with only two classes: the undead, and the soon to be undead trying to postpone what many portray as the inevitable for as long as possible.

Maybe it's that sense of inevitable and crushingly painful defeat that's at the heart of these things-the sense that no matter what you do, where you go, or who you go there with, you're all gonna be zombie food at the end of the day. Makes for a compelling journey and provides the author with a great, clean template to work from.

If you like my work, shoot me an email at ! If you don't like my stuff, you can still email me, but I will send back videos with wrestling kittens and a sleeping monkey, snoring. Fair warning.

You can also check out my blog or "friend" me on Facebook, in the rare event I have anything interesting to say. Did you know that's a verb now, "friending"? Yeah, news to me too. But I'll figure out these interwebs sometime soon.

    There's nothing new here. It's the same old type of zombie story

    There's nothing new here. It's the same old type of zombie story, end of the world stuff. Nothing original! The writing is okay, passable. There's got to be something better out there. Something more original ...

    Brillance, part two!

    Mr. James scores another homerun with the second full length installmemt to the LZR-1143 series. Again, nonstop action and fully engaging character development lead me to finish it within a day! Highly recommended.

    Pretty Awesome!

    I thought that this book was just great. It had action, gore (TONS of it), death, suspense, and much more. Its a real page turner for sure! The only thing I wish it had more of would be twists. Not really anything surprising or that shocked me in this book. But don't get me wrong, this is a great zombie book! Highly recommend.

    Not bad... not as good as the first!

    I really enjoyed the first novel, this one wasn't too bad.. The scenarios were realistic and the character interaction was believable. I wish there were more core (new) characters in the second book. Definitely worth the read though!
