The Savage Dead by Joe McKinney

 

Review by Kelsey O.

 

A Mexican drug cartel hell bent on assassinating Senator Sutton for her unwavering war against them unleashes a deadly bacteria on the cruise ship she is on. This bacteria turns the humans into ravenous carnivores destroying all in their path. For those that aren’t affected they must fight for survival among the many undead. Juan Perez, former Delta Force and current secret service, must use his training to keep the few left alive. With the help of several other interesting characters such as Tess, another secret service agent, they begin to wage their battle only to find that not only are the fighting the undead but they are battling an assassin named Pilar and have to stop all this before they land in the U.S.

It has been awhile since I’ve enjoyed a straight up zombie book. With a bit of a twist Joe McKinney puts the reader in a state of panic along with the survivors. From the very beginning the reader is drawn into each character. The plot is laid out cleverly making it a fast past storyline.

Zombie fans will not be disappointed and as a first time Joe McKinney reader I will definitely not hesitate to pick up another great thriller by him.
