This is a follow-up to Knight's "The Gathering Dead," Gartrell's story after he gets left behind on a mission in NYC. It's a great short story - pulls you right in, action-packed and realistic (considering the theme), a real page turner. As usual, there's a powerful, and at least for me, unexpected ending. I really enjoy Knight's style - I've enjoyed all of his stories and would heartily recommend this one.

Knight is breathing new life into a tired subgenre. What I like about "Left With The Dead" and "The Gathering Dead," is that there aren't any stupid characters doing stupid things, where the reader is hoping beyond hope that the zombies get them sooner rather than later. The characters here are well drawn, intelligent, and doing whatever they can to survive the hordes of the dead.

Knight's writing is clean, meticulously crafted, and he knows how to write combat sequences. The ever increasing tension throughout had me hoping beyond hope that the characters would make it to the end of the book. There are instances when I cringed, and not because of a character's predictable or bad decision, but because the characters herein are making all the *right* decisions, and *still* defecation impacts the rotary oscillator.

I haven't felt the same rush since watching "Aliens."

I can't say anything more about this particular novella except, if you enjoyed the first Gathering Dead book, then this is an addition that raises an already high bar. And for the price, you're robbing the walking dead.

Very much recommended.

Best $1.99 I've spent in awhile. This novella is a continuation of The Gathering Dead. It follows one man who is now alone and scarcely armed in the zombie infested New York City.

I felt this book (novella) was even better than the Gathering Dead. It had non-stop action, and quite the twist at the end. I was rooting for the character the entire way through, staying up late to finish it.

Mr. Knight has once again entertained me and I highly suggest his work to anyone who likes zombies.

Keith Blackmore said it all in his review. This was an awsome addition to the story. Much added depth to the First Sergeant. Powerful ending. A must read!

Picking up when Gartrell split off from Major McDaniels this novella not only continues the crazy fast pace of "The Gathering Dead" but manages to amp it up faster. Gartrell is alive and alone in the near dead New York city and now has to find a way out alive. Picking up two survivors Gartrell looks for an impossible escape. If you have read "The Gathering Dead" then you better read this one right away!

This novella is a fantastic addition to The Gathering Dead story. It tells the story of Sergeant David Gartrell who is separated from his crew in the first book. Non stop action and great story telling makes this novella well worth you time and money! Highly recommend.

I am really enjoying this book. I finished The Gathering Dead in about 2 or 3 days. I am not a heavy reader but I just could not stop reading once I got started. The only book that hooked me like these in the last couple years was The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I hope to see more additions to this series in the near future!

Another great read by Knight. Spoiler alert.

This one starts with Special Forces Sgt. Dave Gartrell running for his life. He's carrying a flare to attract the attention of the walking dead. To lead them away from McDaniel's and those he's trying to get to the Coast Guard cutter in the East River.

It works. The dead all follow him.

Dave tosses the flare and runs like hell. The dead follow the flare. Mindless eating machines that they are.

Dave ends up in a Starbucks. This is where he meet Jolie. A Jolie who was in the Starbucks for food. Dave himself is hungry as hell and grabs a few of the stale pastries that Jolie has already helped herself to.

After speaking with Jolie Dave decides to accompany her to her apartment which next door to the Starbucks.

Once there Dave finds Jolie has a son. Jaden. He's autistic and anything out of the ordinary will upset him to the point of screams. Screams which will attract the dead. Dave knows the dead can get into a building. They already did when he. McDaniel's and the rest of the team were forced out of a building and into a run for their lives.

Jolie tells Dave she's waiting for her husband who was on his way home.

Of course Dave knows that the husband will probably never arrive. He talks Jolie into going with him. He really doesn't want to get involved with these civilians but feels he just can't leave them on their own.

Husband does show up. He's a walker and he has the key to the building. A key which he uses to open the door to the walking dead.

Dave, Jolie and Jaden get out of the building. Dave has been in contact with the Army and a group is in the underground subway tunnel just down the street. That's where Dave and Jolie head.
