Publisher's Summary

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.

    "I really enjoyed this book!"

    "worst narrator I've ever listened to."

    I think the story was written well. It has a good story line that keeps you interested and characters you care about. The narration on the other hand was very hard to listen to, maybe if the guy was acting out a love story or some kind of romantic nonsense he would be ok. But not a zombie story or anything like it.

    "pretty awesome"

    it's a good story cause the author is awesome at story telling but after the Joe Ledger stories I've heard with Ray Porter as the narrator, I don't know if any other narrator will ever get my interests as much even though this one was ok..

    Story
    "Cannot STAND the narrator."

    The story was interesting...I would like to find out what happens next. However, the narrator was awful. He made the women in the story sound pathetic and helpless. He overdid it at times. The voice he used was the same voice I used when I read to my son when he was a toddler.
    Like I said, I'd like to find out what happens, but I'm tempted to just buy the book and actually read it myself.

    Story
    "A Fantastic Addition to the Zombie Genre"

    I loved this book. I've just finished my second listen and will probably move into a second listen from the sequel. I'm eagerly waiting for the next book in the series.

    Officer Desdemona Fox is the most frustrating hero ever, but I love her. Jonathan Maberry does the most amazing job at giving a character life, motivations, hopes and dreams. But he also managed to give them flaws that are complex, frustrating and endearing.

    The narrator William Dufris brings you into the story so we'll that when he tells you someone screams, you feel the throat burning vibration of that character's vocal chords.

    If Zombie fiction is your thing, this is a slice of heaven. Sit down, curl up in a ball and listen to your nightmares unfold.

    "Very well done not your normal zombie book"

    well written with enough character building to make you know the players. I liked the fact that it isn't all of the sudden the whole world is infected. very believable infection idea
    Good job.

    I like history and biography, novels too. I do have a thing for zombie books as well. I need crappy thrillers now and then.

    "Light on Zombies"

    I liked Maberry's Patient Zero. This one gets stuck in character development. I'm a few hours into the audio book and I just haven't seen enough zombies. I doubt I ca finish this.

    "Magnificent"

    Dead of Night is superb. Scary as hell, it will make you cheer for the heroes and fear the monsters. You will not be able to put the book down.l

    Story
    "Riveting listen"

    I've read most if not all of the Jonathan Maberry books but hadn't stumbled on this one until I was done with the series. It was difficult at first because the narrators voice had a droning sound to it in my head that was almost painful. But I decided to continue listening because it was so highly recommended and once the story took off I heard the voice less and became riveted by the story. It meant all of my expectations and I can't wait to get to the second book. I highly recommend this story.
