*the pocket book *pocket book laws are designed to stop the flow of not only narcotics but the money as well seizing all bank accounts and funds around the world As one would xpect this does not go over well with the cartels and her life is now open season as assassination attempts keep those assigned to guard her very busy Agent Perez and his crack team are good at what they do and thus far have thwarted two attempts on her life but now the arrogance of the Senator will put not only her life and the Agent Perez s team in danger but thousands of innocent lives as she decides to thumb her nose at the Cartels by vacationing in Mexico Nothing will distract her and she boards a cruise ship unaware of the assassin that is already on board Juan assigns his best agent to protect the Senator and stays behind because he believes he has uncovered a conspiracy to kill the Senator Following his instinct he is led to a meat packing company in San Antonio Texas What he discovers is beyond imagination as one particularly brutal Cartel and its leader Ramon Medina have something in mind that will rid the thorn on his side Senator Sutton rid him of his rivals and give him control of the border towns and the drug trade between Mexico and the United States Ramon Medina has a deadly chemical agent that will turn people into flesh Velva Jean Learns to Drive eaters The story begins at break neck speed in Washington DC and continues on the cruise ship in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico where the battle is raging and Juan Perez is desperate to get to the Senator and his Agent Fighting andvading the Z s is only part of the story and this is what makes it so uniue as the agent Senator and her Aide attempt to flee the horde try to get help and hide from the assassin hot on their heels But really where can you hide when you are on a twenty one story building floating dead in the water in the middle of nowhere and 99% of its occupants are no longer human And of course Joe McKinney does what he does best he humanizes his characters by giving them a backstory to such degree that like or hate them you know them can feel their pain and their reasons for who and what they are Rising Strong even the lessor characters have a spot here that the reader can identify with Battle scenes with the Z s and assassin are aplenty and will satisfy any Z lover but the story behindverything is far frightening The politicians and the Drug Cartels are not that different it s all about power an control with no real winner Kudos to you Mr McKinney for a great adventure that left me drained and gave me nightmares Few authors have that ability you are among them A pure unadulterated guilty pleasure On a cold and stormy weeke.

Nd what could be better than a book about a Mexican drug cartel unleashing a zombie virus on a cruise ship carrying a vacationing anti crime Senator and her bodyguard The cast of characters includes a beautiful assassin a beautiful secret agent a determined Mexican American crime fighter kids in need of rescue a Delta Force rescue gone wrong and lots and lots and lots of gore Joe McKinney s books are always a cut above other zombie books and this was great fun though I think we lost sight of the boatload of kids and a reluctant hero toward the nd plague carrier or no and the finale sets us up for a seuel that I haven t seen What s up with that Joe Recommended for those who like action adventure and yes the undead With all the breathtaking suspense and action of a summer movie thriller The Savage Dead reads like Under Siege meets Resident Evil With a diverse cast of characters whose internal struggles appropriately stablish a sense of dread and force the reader to watch the Babes in the Wood events unfold with discomfort The Savage Dead delivers a zombie adventure fans of the genre will loveA biological weapon unleashed upon unsuspecting innocents who renjoying a vacation on a cruise ship the premise is familiar to readers but McKinney s method of delivery brings the story to life Forensics military weaponry politics and zombies a fun read that is both relevant and intelligent While I flipped through this page turner I nvisioned a Ridley Scott directed film that would focus on the characters and their place in the world with an antagonist who begs for #readers to sympathize with her cause McKinney challenges our worldview and gave me pause for thought on several occasions In the #to sympathize with her cause McKinney challenges our worldview and gave me pause for thought on several
