The first book in a horrifying new series
This terrifying spin on zombies is a thrill ride of gruesome twists and turns that will leave you on the edge of your seat and forever afraid of the dark.
Professor Jake Northrop was on track to build the world’s first biocomputer using genetically engineered bacteria when something went terribly wrong. Now that something has just become top of the food chain. He’s horrified to learn that his experimental bacterium, Zombacter, turns people into flesh-eating monsters. While most of Professor Northrop’s accidental creations are lumbering idiots, some are very different. They can out run you. They can out think you, and they’re hungry! With the help of Bill Santini, a homeless, one-armed veteran, and a small group of survivors, the professor must run a gauntlet of ghouls to escape Center City and find a cure for the zombie plague. From Goodreads
This was okay for a free book. It doesn't quite end on a cliffhanger and we get some answers but it definitely sets the scene for a continuing series. Being about zombies, the book is of course full of gore.
