Our protagonists face a Mexican Cartel that is so tired of the antics of a Senator as she fights the ongoing ruthlessness of the cartels in Mexico, they develop a chemical that when introduced to people turns them in the carnivorous dead. The most interesting part of this book is the setting, a cruise ship, which Joe sets up as a huge character herself, lumbering, overwhelming and unforgiving. The Senator is a passenger with her husband, a political aide and a CIA agent along with an assassin dutied with making sure the Senator doesn't leave the ship alive.
As the survivors of the apocalyptic event on the ship fight those that have changed, in comes a Delta Force team to help their cause. Armed to the teeth, they battle thousands of zombies in an effort to save the Senator before, well; I leave that to you, dear reader.
How do you like your zombies? Slow, fast, smart, mindless? Joe gives you all of this in this spectacular book. He continues to take the genre a step up every time he puts pen to paper. His imagination is infectious. This book is a page turner, so make sure you set aside enough time to read because you will not want to put it down until it is done. Also, keep an eye on the nearest accesses because his characters are so real, you never know who or what might come lumbering through the nearest door while you are engrossed in his tale of deteriorating mankind!
I took off one star because he didn't really explain how pretty much everyone on board the cruise ship BUT our few favorite main characters got the "zombie flu", but I went with it anyway.
If you like a good zombie yarn, this book is well worth the investment.
