Nearly two decades have passed since the fall of the United States. And the rise of the church to fill the void. Nearly twenty years since Ian Sumner lost his father. And the dead took to the streets to dine on the living.
Now Ian and a lost band of survivors are trapped in the wilderness, miles from safety. Pursued by madmen and monsters, they unravel the secrets of the plague ...and walk the line of heresy.
Ian and this troop need to do more than just survive. More than ever, they must learn to live.

I would like to start off saying I normally do not read Zombie books; but after hearing so many good things about this one, I decided to give it a go. Within the first few pages I was hooked. It was non-stop pure excitement from start to finish. I found myself devouring the book as fervently as a zombie consuming its human prey. The only disappointment was at the end when I realized there was nothing left to read. I would like to give my kudos to the author and his entrancing first book.
A plane crashes into the 'unprotected zone' and the survivors must band together to survive. Oh, and they are being chased by dead, rotting corpses. WOW! Such great storytelling, fully-developed flawed (yet likeable) characters, scary zombies. I LOVED it! Hey, I don't know how to write a book review, but let me share a few things. This is not a genre I would normally be drawn to, but so glad I read this novel. Scared one minute, laughing the next..I'm sure I would have been a sight to see while reading this! Whether a seasoned zombie-lover or a newbie like me, there is plenty to enjoy in this book. Science lover? Check. Crazy family issues? Yep. Guys crushing on girls and vice-versa? You bet. References to Chicago? Of course! (Ok, so I'm from Chicago and loved reading about the Red Line subway..ummm..problem?) There's something for everyone. I highly recommend this novel. Now please excuse me while I join the 'Star Wars vs. Dune' argument... Enjoy!!
As a huge fan of horror books and movies I am always on the lookout for something new and interesting. I was so excited to read Dead Things and I was not disappointed!! This book has a bit of everything, mixing horror with society and science and a dash of humor! I was captivated from the start and couldn't put it down. Matt's fresh voice and smooth, smart storytelling is intriguing and fun. I'm excited to see what's next.

I warn you, this novel will have you hooked.'Dead Things' is this decades entry way into the world of zombies.
