Book Description

The city of River’s Edge has been quarantined due to a rodent borne rabies outbreak. But it quickly becomes clear to the citizens that the infection is something much, much worse than rabies...

The townsfolk are attacked and fed upon by packs of the living dead. Labeling the infected residents “bees” for their tendency to travel in swarms, Gavin and Benny attempt to survive the chaos in River’s Edge while making their way north in search of sanctuary. No one knows what waits outside the quarantined zone, but Gavin and Benny know that to survive, they must escape.

“Very clever and very sharp.”—Day of the Woman

“An incredibly well written story that almost fools you into thinking that the world you are reading about is in fact real.”—Freddy In Space

“The action scenes are brilliantly thought out and expressed. I will have to give [it] a bloody 4 Undead Heads out of 5.”—Lyle Perez-Tinics, Undead in the Head

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, enthralling - and a little nauseating May 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
River's Edge has a problem. A severe outbreak of rabies has been declared and people are dying by the truckload. Sort of. A survivor by the name of Gavin who is trying to find his family has a feeling there is something more to this rabies outbreak and as the story progresses, and he encounters other survivors he discovers just what.
River's Edge is full of zombies and they're hungry. Before long Gavin and his rag tag group have dubbed the zombies 'bees' in 'honor' of the way they swarm when attacking - and not only do the survivors have to watch out for the bees, they are also in danger of being killed by the exterminators. Exterminators are soldiers who have been sent to well...exterminate the zombies. Or anything they might come across.
Ok I have to be honest up front. I'm not a zombie fan. The idea makes me feel a little ill - not in an 'oh please, get real' kind of way. It's more of an 'oh please excuse me, I think I'm going to be sick' kind of way. I think it has something to do with the way zombies are portrayed as being so relentless and hungry...but I digress.

Originally an online, serialised novel Dead Meat was no different, it made me feel ill. But that is not a criticism - it's a compliment. Well written with strong narrative, excellent characters and yes nausea inducing descriptions, Dead Meat is a good addition to any horror library and a must read for any zombiephile. Yes, such things exist. My sister is one....
It's impossible to not be drawn into the horror and desperation Gavin experiences as the story advances and this is testimony to the talent of the authors. A little online research suggests there are more instalments to come and I certainly hope so as the brothers' style and talent has certainly hooked me. Even if I am double checking all the locks tonight.

This book motivated me to write my second book review. After reading most of the more well known zombie novels on kindle many of the selections I had been reading recently tended to be shallow and disappointing. Dead Meat was an undiscovered gem of a book that captivated from beginning to end. The novel is driven both by an intense and graphically depicted story line but also skillfully blends in excellent character development. The action is pretty much now stop and written very well. The main characters are original and provide the avenue to become truly lost in the world created by the authors. Why do I feel this book is a change of pace from the the standard zombie fair? Mainly because the authors had the talent to breath real life and voice into this book. You never really can determine where the story line is truly taking the characters and the anticipation keeps you turning the pages to see what happens next. The price was a bit high compared to other zombie fiction on kindle but in my opinion it was worth it. This novel deserves to be read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story June 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The city of River's Edge has been quarantined due to a rodent borne rabies outbreak. But it quickly becomes clear to the citizens that the infection is something much, much worse than rabies...

The townsfolk are attacked and fed upon by packs of the living dead. Labeling the infected residents "bees" for their tendency to travel in swarms, Gavin and Benny attempt to survive the chaos in River's Edge while making their way north in search of sanctuary. No one knows what waits outside the quarantined zone, but Gavin and Benny know that to survive, they must escape.

Review: Two strangers are thrown together in a midst of utter chaos, unimaginable destruction, and nightmarish horrors. In any other circumstance, Gavin and Benny most likely would have never met. They would have never had the need to pair up to fight for survival. But they have. Dead Meat is their story.

I am one that enjoys a good horror/thrill ride of a story. Dead Meat definitely delivers on that aspect. From the start, the story begins in the middle of the craziness. The action and pace never slows.

If you aren't afraid of things that go bump in the night....I dare you to pick up a copy of Dead Meat. Allow yourself to suffer the wrath of goosebumps and eerie chills as every little sound will potentially drive you out of your mind. ......

5.0 out of 5 stars Great different take on Zombies September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really liked it. It has Zombies, death, and rot. Although it's put together in a way I have never seen. I thought it was great!

I also liked this book because every time you think. (I know what is going to happen here. Bamn it doesn't. Then you are just reading along not expecting something and that's when it hits.(

I really liked all the people the main guy Gavin meets along the way Also how they make split second choices that you don't expect. Don't want to spoil it so I will leave off here! Again if you like Zombie books, but are sick of the same o' story. Take a bit of Dead Meat you won't be sorry! Just a little more DEAD!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gritty Survivor's Tale 4.5 Stars June 6, 2012
Format:Paperback
Dead Meat is a zombie apocalypse tale told from the perspective of Gavin, a young man living in River's Edge when an outbreak of what the media claims is rabies spread by rats has already overtaken the town. The military has been called in and at the start of the story it's clear that this is no normal case of rabies. Gavin meets Benny, who is hiding out on the roof of a convenience store, a couple of days into the mess the `bees' (what Gavin dubs the undead/biters, because they tend to swarm together when they attack) have created. Together, they try to make their way to Gavin's sister and parents who live in another town, but naturally there are a tremendous amount of obstacles in their way, including the military, who are exterminating the living along with the undead with extreme prejudice in an attempt to control the plague.
While this story is in the traditional Romero mold with slow moving undead, this first person, present tense tale takes a different tact than many stories I've seen. You would expect this story to be about survival, which it is, and about dealing with human drama, which it also is about, but it really burrows down deep into issues of trust and how being a survivor changes a person much more than most. We go deep into Gavin's paranoia and trust issues, as well as how tortured he is by what he is forced to witness and do to stay alive. While the story is about Gavin, it is Benny's tale too, along with Rickett, an old recluse they happen upon, and Henry (Henrietta) a girl they also find during their trip.
