Aboard a freighter bound for Baltimore harbor, an Iranian terrorist prepares to unleash an unimaginable horror upon the United States.

Before it's too late, Cutter will have to find a way to survive, and find a reason to fight: his redemption.

It was a warm summer morning when the dead began to rise up and feast upon the living. The city was overrun in a matter of hours. The military acted immediately. They closed all the exits leading out of the area in order to contain the outbreak. They shot anyone trying to escape. Their methods were successful. The outbreak was contained, but all hope for the people trapped behind the gates... had been lost.

Former ranger Jack Smith watched an Army bio-warfare experiment go horribly wrong in an Afghan village in 2001, escaping only after he turned to a makeshift mace and bayonet to destroy the skulls of the infected creatures that bullets to the chest could not stop. With the traumatic experience seared into his mind, he earned his PhD, in ancient history and began developing medieval weapons-making skills after he left the service.

Always been a fan of S. W. narrations, now a fan of his writing. gripping, edge of seat and can't put down this story. The author's wit, grip on emotional strings and ability to truly tell a great story shins through in this one.
Would love to read listen to more in this world.

The Zee Brothers have a strange and dangerous vocation. While some hunt rodents or pests in the dark, Jonah and Judas tackle much larger prey: zombies. Equipped with a well-loved artillery gun named DeeDee and a much used and somewhat abused pickup truck called Sasha, the duo clear the night of undead pests, keeping the ever-present threat of a zombie apocalypse at bay.
