More About the Author

Shaun Jeffrey was brought up in a house in a cemetery, so it was only natural for his prose to stray towards the dark side when he started writing. Among his 30-plus writing credits are short stories published in Surreal Magazine, Dark Discoveries, Shadowed Realms, and Cemetery Dance. He has also had two collections published, The Mutilation Machination and Voyeurs of Death and five novels, Killers, The Kult, Deadfall, Fangtooth and Evilution. His novel, The Kult has been filmed by Gharial Productions and will hopefully be released soon.

Product Description

Review

The novel's action dashes forward like a ravenous ghoul, building in tension and suspense until at last, with an adept hand, Jeffrey puts the bullet of a finale right between its eyes. --Dark Scribe Magazine, March 2010

After killing us with suspense in his last novel, The Kult, he's returned to the horror genre, armed with blood, zombies, sexy heroines, and his always in-your-face attitude. --Horror World Reviews, May 2010

From the Publisher

From the author of the highly-acclaimed thriller, THE KULT, comes an action packed adventure that takes zombies to a new level of entertainment.

Deadfall, the latest novel from The Kult author Shaun Jeffrey is is take on the zombie genre. Now before some of you sigh, I know who you are, and I generally feel the same as you but , this book goes swims against the tide and is a great zombie book.

A team of mercenaries led by Amber Redgrave the feisty female heroine of the novel have been contracted to rescue two children being held hostage by rouge ex-soldiers. Unknown to the team this is a ruse and the real danger is far more horrific.

On the flip side are a pair of eco warriors Jill and Lofty who by sheer chance, when they decide to check out a local test facility, end up helping out the team of mercenaries when the proverbial hits the fan.

This is the second novel of Shaun's from Leucrota press, sees Shaun on full on action mode, to call this a zombie novel would be a great disservice to his writing. This is not a case of jumping on the zombie bandwagon, far far from it. Yes there is an army of stinking rotting reanimated corpses, yes the only sure fire way to kill them is a shot to the head. To me this was more of an adventure novel, like those of Jeremy Robinson and Jonathan Mayberry, than a horror novel, which in my humble opinion is a good thing. This novel deserves to read by a much wider audience than that of the mere zombie fan. Don't get me wrong there are plenty of gruesome and terrifying scenes for the discerning horror writer. I just feel there is so much more to this than a zombie novel.

The action scenes are handled with great confidence, it is easy to see why Shaun has become one of my go to authors, even though this is only his third published novel, he has developed his own style of writing. Strong, and sleek with good well thought out characters.

This is one of the hardest reviews I've ever written. When I first started reading Deadfall I had to push myself to keep reading. I nearly abandoned it several times, but something kept drawing me back - Mr. Jeffrey's writing skills. The first half of the book was action-packed but also a little bit too `military ops' for my taste.

I liked the main character, Amber, from the beginning. Tough, relentless, no-holds-barred chick with a `tude - but for me Deadfall had a slow start, a little like treading water. I had a feeling the action was coming, but I was starting to get impatient. Amber's interactions with her `partner' Eddie screamed sexism but had me sniggering with their tit-for-tat encounters.

The zombies (and yes, I bought this book because it featured zombies!) took a little bit too long to arrive, and then just as background. But at the halfway mark Deadfall kicked up the action a full two stars. The zombies emerged from the darkness, Amber developed into an amazing character, and the seemingly secondary characters of Lofty and Jill occupied top billing.

As the story kicks into top gear, I was hooked - the characters develop their third dimensions, the writing becomes enthralling and spine-tingling, and the climax left me guessing, and cheering for Amber, Lofty and Eddie.

Writing the review as thoughts are still fresh in my mind. Just finished the book. Wowzers.

Just from seeing the cover, I just knew this was a book for me. It just freaks me out. Yet I was still curious, bit like when you're watching a horror movie and you've got your hands in front of your eyes but you're still peeping between your fingers, that kind of feeling. So that's why I decided this book would be next in line after reading The Kult and acquiring all of Shaun's other Ebooks.

This is definitely one of those "can't put it down" books. I just had to know what was happening next.
The plot is extremely fast-paced. The whole story covers just over 24 hours, and is packed with action and suspense. There isn't a single "dead moment", and the reader gets drawn into the story right from the start. But what I thought made this book totally awesome, is how it was a totally different experience to watching zombie movies (zombie book virgin I was until I read this one). It's a complete experience for the reader. One that involves all the senses. Sight and hearing obviously. But also touch, taste, smell, through the cleverly written descriptions. The reader is a witness to the scenes, but also feels like the characters. Nothing is left to imagination, every single detail is included. Well apart from what actually rotting zombie flesh smells like, but still, I just guess it's pretty close to chicken that's gone off if not worse.

As usual, you can expect the unexpected twist when you expect it the least. And expect to not have any idea about the end. Because it won't end the way you're thinking it will. Or maybe it will, but that's after you've thought about every single exit scenario. Gosh Shaun's books totally mess up with your brain...

A smashing read.

Deadfall is a zombie book. Now I'm not really into zombies, but I am into Shaun Jeffrey books, so gave it a go.

It starts off like a Chris Ryan sort of book, but with a female lead. Woman special ops type person leads a team of blokes all tooled up on what they think is a kidnap rescue mission, which turns oh so badly wrong.

Another reviewer mentioned they could imagine this as a film, but I was picturing it in my mind more as a video game.

Being not much of a zombie fan, at times I was "get on with the plot" but since to plot was humans v zombies, that was the plot lol.

On the whole, a decent enough story, if not quite my cup of tea.
