This is a wonderful piece of fiction. It has the qualities that every piece of fiction should have: snagging the reader immediately and keeping the reader interested in "what happens next?". In other words, a real page turner. The only reason I did not give it five stars is that the ending of the book was rather cliche. Nevertheless, it's a good read!!
Zombie by any other name is still a Zombie!! Another UK writer who doesn't like that "Z word" in their book for whatever reason. As with most zombie lore, the interesting part of the story is with the people trying to survive. This story is no different and offers interesting story lines which come together and inter-twine at various points. Good character development. This book will keep you flipping to the next page. Much recommended for UK zombie fans. (He uses a lot of actual central UK places in this book).
Never mind the many scientific inaccuracies (Allosaurus lived in the Jurassic not the late Cretaceous and there were certainly no native humans in the late Cretaceous) this is a page flipping read. Or if you read on Kindle a forward button pressing read! If you like Earth bound Sci Fi mixed with a little espionage, this is your book
This was a ripoff of the Michael Lee Jones case. You can read this article from 2010 in Vanity Fair and it looks like the story was lifted right off its pages.
I am giving it 4 stars (one star off due to the ripoff) but it is still a pretty good read. If the link doesn't work Google "The Case of the Vanishing Blonde".
