Of all the Torchwood tie-in novels I have read (I think I have read all but three of them at this point), this was one of the most enjoyable. Zombies and Torchwood go together like bread and butter. Gwen's husband, Rhys, and her former police partner, PC Andy Davison, both play larger roles in this novel due to the absences of Owen Harper and Toshiko Sato. I am not a huge fan of Rhys, but I enjoyed him in this story. I also enjoyed seeing more of Andy; I hope we will see his role expand in future novels.
There is a fair amount of gore, as one would expect from a story centering around zombies. I was never bothered by this, despite my aversion to zombie movies as a whole. All of the Torchwood characters are portrayed well; there's quite a bit of banter between Jack and Ianto and some touching scenes between Gwen and Rhys. The story felt like it could be an episode of the show, which is my main criterion for these books.
Mark Morris has written two Doctor Who tie-in novels, Doctor Who Forever Autumn and Doctor Who: Ghosts Of India, both of which I enjoyed. I had high expectations for this book based on those two previous titles and I was not disappointed. Recommended for Torchwood fans.
While I do miss the characters of Tosh and Owen there was an advantage to having only three members of the team - the author was able focus all the details and energy on those three characters.

A couple of notes:
* We hear here that Captain Jack has a bit of a rivalry with a "tall, slim, beautiful black woman" police detective named Swanson (who apparently first appeared in They Keep Killing Suzie).
* We see PC Andy's new partner, Dawn Stratton.
* We get a first, brief look at a really fun character in The House That Jack Built, old man/alien Alexander Martin.
* Despite the title, nautical-oriented fans should know there's only one minor scene set on Cardiff Bay.
