Black Ops Agent Chad Halverson of the CIA's National Clandestine Service escapes plague and zombie-ravaged Santa Monica with dress designer Victoria Brady. Together, they set sail up the smoldering California coast.
Along the way, Halverson and Brady rescue the idealistic Dr. Parnell, the UCSB coed Brittany Pine who is in a state of shock induced by the loss of her boyfriend to the walking dead, and the cynical reporter Blake Reno.
Seeking sanctuary from the walking dead in Alcatraz Prison, Halverson and his band discover that all is not as it seems on the island haven. In fact, they may have more to fear than just the walking dead in the person of Alcatraz's reigning Chosen One, the charismatic proponent of law and order Jefferson Bascomb, who believes zombies have the right to a fair trial.

Still with the bags of money storyline??? At what point do you realize that money is worthless in a Zombie Apocalypse.
You want to believe that Halverson is a smart badass character, yet he continues making stupid choices.
This book also completely forgot to explain how all of a sudden the Zombies started working as a team?? Are they being directed by a smart zombie?? I don't mind the story going in that direction, but to not address this obvious departure from traditional zombie canon with nary an explanation is weak.
I'm still giving this story a chance with the hope that the next book will be better.
Not the worst but not the best either. I would recommend the book, however only to zombie/apocalypse genre fans.
