Overview

Jake Chestnut and partner Gary Landon are partners in Seraglio, a small company hired by local governments and businesses to exterminate zooks. These hardened men and women have been on the front line of a virtual war for five years, killing monsters who were once people. There is no end in sight. The bite delivered plague struck five years ago and has killed about a third of humanity. Zooks are victims of Metamorphic Plague, a fatal disease that causes victims to behave like rabid apes who move so quickly that a normal person can't track them by eye.

Entire cities have been devastated, and nobody knows which way the fight to survive will go. Jake must discover why the consortium that just hired Seraglio to clear the zooks from Margolin Hills Resort Community (MHRC), the first in a series of plague-safe enclaves for the very wealthy is suddenly trying to kill him. What he discovers may lead to civil war.

"...in Zook Country Bill Swears has created a memorable world where the good guys aren't just fighting against a never-ending tide of blood thirsty zooks, they are also up against a complex and corrupt corporate structure that at its core is far more evil than the infected humans."
~ Don Rearden, author of the award-winning novel The Raven's Gift

"...if you like your action fast, your narrator laconic and your stories addictive then Zook Country is the book for you."
~ N. M. Browne, author of Wolf Blood

Meet the Author

Born in Great Falls, MT to an Air Force family, he averaged less than a year living any place until his late teens. He's lived in England, Iran, Germany, and nine states. He flew military helicopters for twenty-two years, seven for the Army, and fifteen for the Coast Guard.

Before the military, before the flying, and before he could really grow a beard, he met Teri. They married in 1982 and their kids were born in 1999 and 2004. They'll soon celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary with their two kids, two Eurasier dogs, and two cats in a beat-up old log home on a ridgeline in Peter’s Creek, Alaska. Bill completed his Masters of Arts in English on Groundhog Day, 2010, and now works as a technical writer/editor and sometime professor of composition.

    I don't usually read science fiction, but I really enjoyed Zook

    I don't usually read science fiction, but I really enjoyed Zook Country. It is fast paced, action packed and easy to read. Zook Country would make a great action movie. I am looking forward to a sequel.
