A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he can be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang… but a bite.

Dead of Night ranks (very) high among all the audiobooks I've ever listened to so far.
The story was great, but the most memorable moments was at the end when patient zero walks into the diner smiling with blood on his face.
Everything about Mr. Dufris's performance was as usual GREAT.
Are you Ready?
I am starting to listen to books more and more - I don't really have time for reading nowadays and this allows me to get my much needed "fix"
The main character - Officer Desdemona Fox - was not relatable at all. There are strong female characters and there are annoying ones. She was annoying. The story was pretty good and the other characters were ok (not much depth) but over all, Fox almost had me putting this book down. I also think that the theory of the parasite has some major flaws but I liked the reasoning of the doctor - that was something that would be fitting.
I have not but he did really well. He definitely put a lot of heart into this performance and I look forward to hearing some of his other work.
Probably some thing like This Is How The World Ends or something about a Death Storm.
Of the Zombie novels that I have read - this one is probably top 20 but not top 15. I like the background leading up to the Doctor's reasoning of creating this strain but there were a lot of flaws and holes in the story that were never really discussed and the main character, Officer Desdemona Fox, was a real annoyance. I am all for strong female leads, but when they are written like that, I would much rather have the male lead than what her character was from the beginning up to the very last page. I will probably not read this again but I would recommend it to others for something to pass the time with.
Was Vincent Price the narrator of this book? I can't give this book a good review because I couldn't finish it listing to William Dufris is just bad really bad.
Sure would, it kept me on the edge of my seat and pulled me in looking for more!
Ghost Road Blues. Another great novel and listen I might add. Love his take on the Zombie apocalypse.
His inflection of each character and how he brings them to life in your head.
Dez Fox of course.. A woman who has many issues but can still fight through them and kick some zombie butt...!
Jonathan Maberry is an excellent writer and I just hope he keeps his novels coming!
Thank you Mr. Maberry for making the long journeys in the car more enjoyable!
Very good book. Some parts could have been expanded. but over all i really enjoyed it. i work in a place that i can listen to books on the job, and have listened to it 4 or 5 times.
rize again, is of the same genra and also very good.
volker, to see what other kinds of things the commies were uup to.
Yes I would, Maberry makes you think the end of the world really could start this way. It was a pretty good zombie story.
Its comparable to Patient Zero also by Maberry.
It was more of the descriptions and details than any one moment, Maberry paints a pretty gruesome picture of the attacks and gore.
Love the horror genre but read all kinds of stuff! I'm 40 something, a wife, mom and Project Manager for a large Construction Company.
I love Jonathon Mayberry's Joe Ledger books and decided to read this one while waiting for the next one of those. I was surprised by the storyline! I have read many many zombie books and have not come accross one from the zombies perspective (that wasnt a comedy!). This is a good read!
Still not sure how I missed finding Jonathan Maberry before but I am hooked. This book seems to keep up his Zombie theme, with more of the classic outbreak/beginning story. Providing one of the better back stories for how the infection came to be than most books, the book kept me glued until the end.
When a mad-scientist doctor injects a death row serial killer with something other than what the government wants, untold horror is unleashed on a little county in Pennsylvania. Most of the story is told from the perspective of the reporter, Trout, and his on-again, off-again girlfriend Dez. Trout gets the full story from the prison doc, while Dez must slowly figure out the danger she is in bit by bit and only through trial and error is she able to learn how to fight correctly. It is a solid story that keeps you involved for the entire novel, as you try to figure out where the story will end.
Original zombie plot and a kick butt chic main character.
The school house
No i havent
Cant get enough zombie books, just cool reads.
Yes, Tell me how would you react if it happened to you
When they were ambushed on the second floor of the school. I guessed what happened when he was under the pile.
Yes, it was very hard to stop listening to.
Jonathan Maberry has become one of my favorite authors.
