Extremely well written and plotted series. Knapp presents characters that develope and evolve along with the storyline (as opposed to just presenting characters upon which a story is based). The story itself is compelling and presents the question of when does a force that opposes a repressive government become terrorism and evil within itself? Just when the answer seems to appear , at the end of the first book of this series, a third antangonist is introduced which changes everything.Evolving technology itself eventually becomes becomes a major factor on its own to the point of being a fourth player. This series is an intelligently written and plotted adventure, horror,spy, fiction story which is highly recommended.

I thought the storyline was different and interesting. It was a little confusing/frustrating that each chapter was from a different character's point of view. A little slow in the beginning.

I felt slightly shortchanged by this book as the ending really took place over the course of about 10 pages or so. I suspect there will be a sequel. HOWEVER, the author presents some rather unique ideas and for me it was a good page tuner. This book is NOT a book about about zombies, tho there are the dead (that seemed to be re-animated via science). Worth the read.

America is at war, which is nothing new, as America is always at war. However, the all voluntary army has maintained its constant readiness by offering incredible benefits to those who sign up. Rather than face death in some foreign land, a soldier can enlist as a revivor; a person who to dies before serving, but is revived as a reanimated corpse with cognitive skills intact and no need to eat live humans due to an implant although battlefield atrocities have been reported as Commanders remove the chip inhibiting the flesh obsession. FBI agent and non-revivor veteran Nico Wachalowsk investigates illegal trafficking of reviver sex slaves. However, his inquiry leads him instead to illegal shipments of military weaponry including revivors. At the same time his former girlfriend police officer Faye Desalia is trailing a serial killer. When the couple compares notes, they find one link, the leading contractor for revival technology, Heinlein Industries. They are soon joined by cage fighter Calliope Flax and psycho psychic is Zoe Ott as the two cases take twists unforeseen by either Nico or Faye as the overseas wars are coming home to roost. This is an intriguing futuristic Americana thriller in which the atmosphere and ironically what is implied but not said (for instance what war is this as seemingly eternal conflict makes them all the same) in some ways overwhelms the prime conspiratorial plot. The story line is action-paced with the zombie concept fresh and the psychic idea not while the fearsome foursome is. Although the conspiracy is over the top of the Pentagon, fans will appreciate this entertaining look at the future of the industrial-military-DC convoluted complex. Harriet Klausner
