Aboard a freighter bound for Baltimore harbor, an Iranian terrorist prepares to unleash an unimaginable horror upon the United States. The "Wrath" is an undead plague - an infection that consumes its victims with a maddening rage and turns them into mindless bloodthirsty killers.
Jack Cutter is just an ordinary guy dealing with a dreadful guilt when the virus tears through his home town. Before it's too late, Cutter will have to find a way to survive, and find a reason to fight: his redemption.

I so wanted to love Ground Zero: A Zombie Apocalypse it sounded, from the summary, to have everything that is needed to be a truly great story. But sadly I didn't. Ryan tried to have a plot of terrorists attacking the United States with a zombie virus. With that it started off great, getting a glimpse of the terror plot. Then the outbreak begins, on the national news, a large crowd of protesters are suddenly transform into a horde of blood thirsty undead. Then we find that the virus as spread across the eastern seaboard. Still pretty good to this point.
Ryan has a special skill when writing about blood filled gory action scenes. They really got my heart pumping. But it seemed to be nothing but blood thirsty gory scene after scene. Because the characters were forgettable. Other than the breast fixation, that I remember clearly.
To me it seemed that Ryan was trying to hard to make something great. Taking too many queues from the old-school T&A horror flicks of yesteryear.

"The same old zombie theme"
If it had any sub plot or even any plot. It was just a series of gory descriptions. I feel just about anybody could have written the same or better book than that.
There was nothing to work with
I quite enjoy end of the world type books but this had nothing to hold the reader.
I read this a couple of years ago along with a load of other post apocalyptic books, I remember it being a good read back them. so I've decided to revisit this and the others on audiobook, great for in the car.
Don't expect any complicated plot or characters, this is short and sweet with plenty of action, if anything it's too short! there are some cheesy bits but overall it does the job and would make a good film.
.......Just remember to have your end of the world plan when the time comes........ ;-)
