The zombie plague turns out to be cooked up by a mad scientist in his lab, like a bad bunch of botox, wanting to sell it to the highest bidder. There is a corrupt rich businessman who wants it, and an equally corrupt general that wants it as well. Now I think that explaining away the zombie outbreak as just something cooked up in a lab sort of takes away a lot of the scary impact. So the mad scientist made a plague---whoopie. Someone smarter can make a cure. The whole zombie scare is a lot better when it is lest unexplained.
Basically the plague is set loose in a little American town as a test, and the town is cut off and contained by the military, and eventually the general in charge tried to nuke it, with everyone living in it. Now regardless of anything else, I would like to think that, no matter who ordered it, that if any branch of the American military was ordered to wipe out an American town, and every man, woman and child in it, that someone in the chain of command, or even the rank and file, would object loudly and get word to a higher authority. The old "I was just following orders" does not really have much meaning anymore.
This being said, this is not a bad book, not at all. There are great characters, especially the sheriff, who is the main hero, (who does survive) and a lot of others. The writing lets you get to know these characters, and you feel involved in what is happening to them. You hope for their survival and regret their loss. There is lots of skulduggery and adventure and fighting and scary stuff. It just is not to my liking. If you like conspiracy stories you will like this one.

Any zombie lover would enjoy this.
I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more from this author and I will be very disappointed if this tale doesn’t find its way onto the big screen.
There must surely be a sequel - Beyond Containment?
