A very good read. This is stripped-down zombie horror as it should be!
There are a good range of characters, all well written; the female doctor being particularly interesting. Again, given the setting, there is scope for some really nasty bad guys too.
My only criticisms are some basic syntactical mistakes (only a couple [that I spotted] and these don't bother me too much - but I know some of you burst blood vessels over misspelling) and in some places a tendency to wordiness in the descriptions. I think that both these things are criticisms to level more at the editor not the author.
Even with the gripes - this was a good read and I enjoyed it. If you like the genre and like the sound of survivors trying to bust out of a zombie infested prison - go for it.
Also, the author leaves scope for a sequel (which I think may have already been written).
and paedophiles. He is up for parole soon and looking forward to getting back to his life with his wife and daughter. But when a new inmate arrives, bringing with him a deadly virus, it's up to Shane and a handful of survivours, to get out alive!
I have to admit that the concept of an outbreak in a prison really enticed me. Despite reading a lot of Zombie books, I never gave any thought to what would happen in a place where you are locked up! This is a new aspect of the genre for me, and I totally loved it! Imagine having a Zombie outbreak happen but you are locked up in a prison, with no hope of escape!! That is exactly what happens to Shane. He has to navigate the locked rooms and find an escape before it's too late.
I really liked Shanes character. He made one stupid decision but is paying the price. Despite his stint in jail, he wants nothing more than to put the past behind him and look after his wife and daughter. When the outbreak happens, his one thought is always of his family. That's what sees him through, and I admired his strength and tenacity.
The plot was fast paced, though I would of liked a little more back story on the origins of the virus. It just kind of happens and we get no idea from where or how? I also wanted a little more of an in depth look at the characters. There are quite a few but we don't get a sense of who they are. Also the time it took people to turn to zombies changed all the time, some changed quickly, while others it took days. Now I know that maybe the virus progressed but it should of been explained more.Read more ›
A good read that was hard to put down and over to soon.
Set in a prison, you meet Shane, a guy on the cusp of release to go back to his family. But as luck will have it, a mysterious illness takes control leaving the prison in pandemonium.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and characters and look forward to reading more of Shane's mission to find his little girl and hearing about the world outside the prison walls.

This is a great first book in what I have found to be a very good series. Would definately recommend a look.Published on 14 Jun. 2013 by weekaka
The title is a clever play on words given it's set in a prison. The characters are perhaps a tad one dimensional at times but overall it's a cracking read.Published on 24 May 2013 by Tony1044
Appreciate that this is book one in a series but the story should have been longer.
The actual story itself is good and the characters start to develop but then It ends.
Fast moving well written and hard to put down. Not my normal choice of book but it doesn't disappoint and I will read the rest of the series.Published on 25 Jan. 2013 by Paul
