Overview

The Savage Dead by Joe McKinney, Michael Kramer

It starts in a laboratory. A man-made strain of flesh-eating virus. Created by a power-hungry cartel. Capable of turning victims into brain-dead carnivores. Smuggled aboard a cruise ship that's about to set sail . . . One by one, the passengers are exposed. A U.S. senator. A young couple. An undercover agent. A beautiful assassin. Some will be infected. Others will survive. But no one will be spared if the outbreak isn't contained and the dead outnumber the living. Enter Delta Force operative Juan Perez. He's fought the deadliest killers in the darkest hellholes on earth. But he's never seen anything like this-an apocalyptic cargo of pure zombie mayhem heading for the coast. If Perez and his SEAL team can't stop it, America, and quickly the entire population of the world, are finished. The plague years will begin . . .

As a reader of Joe McKinney's books, I always finish his newest work by saying “Wow that was better than the last!” Having just read THE SAVAGE DEAD, Joe’s newest contribution to the world of the living dead, I closed the book and went, “Wow that was incredible. Readers of The Savage Dead will be given three books as opposed to one as Joe writes a political thriller a la Frederick Forsyth, a military thriller a la Mark Bowden (Black Hawk Down) and a zombie catastrophic event a la, well, Joe McKinney. Our protagonists face a Mexican Cartel that is so tired of the antics of a Senator as she fights the ongoing ruthlessness of the cartels in Mexico, they develop a chemical that when introduced to people turns them in the carnivorous dead. The most interesting part of this book is the setting, a cruise ship, which Joe sets up as a huge character herself, lumbering, overwhelming and unforgiving. The Senator is a passenger with her husband, a political aide and a CIA agent along with an assassin dutied with making sure the Senator doesn’t leave the ship alive. As the survivors of the apocalyptic event on the ship fight those that have changed, in comes a Delta Force team to help their cause. Armed to the teeth, they battle thousands of zombies in an effort to save the Senator before, well; I leave that to you, dear reader. How do you like your zombies? Slow, fast, smart, mindless? Joe gives you all of this in this spectacular book. He continues to take the genre a step up every time he puts pen to paper. His imagination is infectious. This book is a page turner, so make sure you set aside enough time to read because you will not want to put it down until it is done. Also, keep an eye on the nearest accesses because his characters are so real, you never know who or what might come lumbering through the nearest door while you are engrossed in his tale of deteriorating mankind!

Fast paced read, could not put down. Knew it would be really good because of the great zombie author, I have almost all his books and this one is the same great stuff except this one takes place on a cruise ship.

The other books were great. I didn't enjoy this one at all. The author seemed to not want to write this story. Can't say pone good thing about.
