Fresh version of the zombie novel,
This review is from: Patient Zero (Paperback)
This book was suggested by Amazon based on the volume of Zombie fiction I had previously purchased, I had never heard of the novelist before but decided to give it a try.
What a great book, fantastic characterisation (although the villain is a little clichéd), brutal pace and very violent action, the main character, joe ledger, is sure to feature in many more novels, he has just the right moral compass to succeed in a crowded market of disposable heroes.
The setting of terrorists using zombies as biological weapons gave the book a contemporary feel and sets it apart from the typical "end of the world" zombie novel.
I am working my way through the rest of the writers books and its always a joy to discover a new novelist in an unexpected manner, let's hope Mr Mayberry can keep up the high standard.
