Publisher's summary

The ultimate biological warfare attack is achieved when a group of American soldiers return home from deployment infected with a highly contagious pathogen. The ground zero incubation period is lengthy, and before it is even known that they are infected, the soldiers have already carried it to various cities across the United States.

The culprit of this weapon is not a country or even a person, but rather nature itself.

Within time, no place in the world is safe.

Typically, after work, Brady Lawrence is content sitting on his couch playing video games, taking care of his mother, and watching for disturbing stories on the news. When a particularly gruesome case quarantines the next town over, Brady convinces his best friend, Jason, to go with him and investigate. Their curiosity leads them not only into the thick of things but stuck at the center of ground zero.

In the midst of trying to get out and make it home before the outbreak reaches their families, Brady and Jason soon find themselves on a path to being unlikely heroes in the battle against the infected.

The infection spreads like wildfire, and finding a cure or method to beat it seems hopeless.

Three Miles Out: Book One is the journey of that outbreak.

Good story.

Some American soldiers return home from deployment with more than they left with! They are infected with a highly contagious virus and are spreading it unknowingly. It causes the host to become violent and murderous. They are also ravenous! Is this the beginning of the end?

I quite liked the plot of this one! The action happens right from the start and it's pretty much non stop the whole way through. The author gave us a lot for such a shortish read... it's only about 160 pages! I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, especially the two best friends. It added some levity to the story, until it didn't ;)!!! While it's a zombie book and there is gore, there wasn't so much as to make me squirm. I feel like the author captured the right amount of everything to make this really enjoyable.

In all, this was a solid read. I can't wait till I can listen to the next one because I'm invested in the characters now and need to see what happens next!
