Publisher's Summary

Six years ago, the president made the difficult decision to abandon Washington to the undead-and The Wall was built to keep them trapped inside. Now, a new presidential election revives the hopes of the nation as one candidate promises to retrieve the Declaration of Independence and Constitution from behind The Wall.

Retired CIA operative Asher Hawke, AKA the Kestrel, agrees to lead a team to recover the national treasures. But when they insert behind The Wall, they discover that organized crime families have been stealing priceless artwork and cash as well as disposing of bodies behind The Wall.

The Story Continues!

I really enjoyed book one and book two was a great continuation. I love a good zombie book. I am a big fan of Andrew B. Wehrlen and enjoy all the books he narrates. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Zombies & Mafia

Even though this is the second book in a series, it could be read as a standalone. I loved the idea of the mafia using zombies to get rid of people. What better way to dispose of bodies and leave no trace? Asher Hawke is an interesting character and I enjoyed the insights into his psyche. The dynamics between him and Allison Harper are wonderful and added a welcome relief from the zombie action. The book has plenty of action, but is also much deeper than just zombie killing. There are some very different aspects to the monsters in this series. Brian Parker has used his military experience to make the story that much better. There is enough political manipulations to give the story a wonderful depth that is often absent in the Zompoc genre. The narrator, Andrew Wehrlen, does a great job and his pacing is perfect.

A solid continuation of the series!

I've enjoyed this series still, despite not being much of a fan of the zombie genre! I picked this series up as I've previously enjoyed other works by this author.

Soooooo Good

This book made me laugh and cry but was terrific. The story has more character development and it made a great second book for the series. Mr. Wehrlen did a delightful narration!

Excellent!

I had thought that the jump forward in years and change of main characters might be a problem, but this book is a great listen on it's own merits. Looking forward to book 3!

Great addition to the series

This book picks up 5 years after the previous story ends. I thought the story line of the new president sending in troops to a radiation landmine, several getting killed, just to save some artifacts of history, so the the American people can have hope, was a little far fetched......but then I thought of the time we live in, with some of the things our own president says and does and decided "nope, this is probably exactly how a president would act in that situation." I didn't care much for Alison. How does someone with so much authority and in a high position, be so forgetful, clumsy, indecisive, etc. I just didn't like her. I won't give spoilers, but I'm very much looking forward to starting the next book in the series! ;) The narrator was perfect, again!

Packed with action

Very good book to listen to. I thought there was a bit to much discription in areas. Other than that it was good. The narration was really good, to fast at times but the narrator did a very good job I received a copy of this audible free at my request. All comments in my review are freely given and completely mine.

Loved it!! Can't wait to read the last book!!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this review voluntarily. Also, this is my honest opinion. So now that's out the way on to my review. I love most things zombie and this book was no different. The first book I listened to was top notch. Had you from go. I was hopeful the sequel would be the same and I wasn't wrong. Listened to the whole audiobook in one go. Had the right amount of suspense and terrifying scenes. Not a big fan of cursing and swearing but considering the circumstances in the book, who knows I might've done the same. I definitely recommend listening to the entire trilogy!!

Silly quest but fun story

I like the containment wall. However, the quest to get some historical documents back out of the radiation & zombie zone seems silly to me. Lots of hooray, we’re Americans fist pumping. While I liked all the action, the radiation stuff was weak. The story would have benefited from a bit more research in radiation safety, like how radiation affects cloth and fabric. Heck, radiation is hard on everything including metal and electronics. The ladies are romantic interests, once again, and need protecting and lots of reassurance. I liked some things about Ash but in other moments I rolled my eyes. A little bit of mansplaining goes a long way. Ash’s girlfriend, FBI Agent Allison, was OK. I think she would have been a better character without being involved with Ash. While we met Asher in Book 1, Gnash, he gets to be the star of this book. He’s interesting enough on the surface. With all the action in this series, I don’t really need my characters to have depth. The art thieves group was a fun addition to the story (even if the issue of fencing radioactive art is never really addressed). It was fun, fast-paced. 3.5/5 stars Narration: Andrew B. Wehrlen’s narration has improved from book one. Individual words are clearer. The female character voices are better too. He had individual voices for all the male characters. Great voice for Ash. The pacing is still a bit slow. No tech issues. 4/5 stars I received a free copy of this book. My opinions are 100% my own.

Ring the Dinner Bell!

The new Presidents wish to retrieve some priceless artifacts from Washington sets into motion a horrifying turn of events that leave FBI agent Allison and CIA operative 'kestrel' scrambling to stay alive and ahead of the zombie horde. I really liked Asher's attitude towards violence, he's exactly who you need in the zombie apocalypse! I thought Allison was a bit too focused on being an over achiever, over the small things like surviving! I can't wait to see what disaster and gore awaits in book 3!
