Dan is a small town cop who enjoys the peace and quiet of his town-until the night when things go mad. It starts with the local drunk attacking a cop when spending a night in jail. Now the whole community seems to be infected, killing and eating each other and Dan has to save himself and his family.
This is not a typical zombie book as the people are not traditional corpse style zombies. They are people who became suddenly contaminated and start trying to kill everyone around them. What I liked about this story is that the contamination was planned. I won't spoil the story by telling you any more but it was a nice twist. I liked the way that Howard's story was developed in particular.
The story follows Dan, Howard the bitten officer, and Dan's daughter who is missing in the dark neighbourhood. I liked the way that we switch between them as it keeps the tension up. There is a lot of action and sneaking around in the dark scenes which I enjoy in this kind of book. The author does a good job of telling the story and it was an enjoyable adventure, if not a classic.
I might investigate this series further in the future.
