Publisher's Summary

A strange infection has spread across the entire planet leaving death in its path. The zombie apocalypse that everyone believed to be impossible has brought mankind to the brink of extinction, yet small groups of people have managed to survive. No one has been spared contact with the infected dead, not even the most powerful elected official in the world, the President of the United States.

This is the continuing story of the Mud Island survivors. Their knowledge of a secret network of survivalists who constructed super-shelters has helped them to survive the infection. Together with a small force of dedicated United States Army soldiers, they undertake a dangerous excursion into the infected city of Columbus, Ohio. Their goal is to eliminate as many of the infected as they can while the city is in the grips of a severe winter, but in the process they hope to locate the President's shelter. If he is alive, they can begin to rebuild the country and bring the infection to an end.

My least favorite so far

I have been giving 5 stars across the board for the first 4 books in the Infected Dead until this book. Book 5 is okay, but too many new characters were introduced and the story was almost all about them, yet there had not been enough time for the author to develop the characters to the point where I really cared about them. So much of the action takes place at the airport in Ohio and I found it frankly to be boring, plus some of the storyline was impossibly improbable. I really missed the South Carolina setting.
This is the last of the books on Audible and there are at least two books following this book 5. I am going to see if I can find the written versions of Books 6 and 7 on Amazon and will speed read them to see what happens to my favorite characters, which were introduced in the first couple of books.
