Medicine meets horror in this thrilling escape tale about the evil men do in the name of progress.
Welcome to the Nixon Healing and Research Center, playground for the maniacal Dr. Howard Nixon whose medical research has him dabbling in the undead and has the women of Strandville disappearing.
Desperate to find a cure for the lethal virus which turns its victims into zombies, Nixon kidnaps Miranda Penton, a security recruit with a past that won't let her go. He doesn't count on anyone coming looking for her, least of all her ex-husband, Scott.
A warning call brings Scott to Strandville where he bands together with a team of locals determined to bring their own loved ones home. Together, they infiltrate Nixon's staff, hatching a plan that releases not only the surviving women, but the virus on those left in the hospital.
Nixon locks down the center to contain the spread, turning patients, visitors, and staff into a dangerous horde that is almost impossible to escape. Miranda and the others fight for their lives. The town of Strandville is ground zero for the zombie apocalypse and Miranda must get free because the fate of humanity lies with her unborn child.
Thanks for sharing. Your book sounds very interesting. I'll have to read it.
Excellent! I hope you do ;-) Reviews are always greatly appreciated. The sequel, Afterbirth, releases next week.
I just started Cure last week. I'll let you know what I think. It's started out quite well.
Finished it a couple weeks ago. I would have liked to have finished it earlier, but I've been pretty busy and reading time is scarce.
It's a nice mixture of medical thriller and a zombie thrill ride. It takes a while to get the story set, but it's not time wasted. Once it really gets going, it doesn't slow down. You have it all in this book -- virtuous heroes, nasty villains, and a balanced amount of gore. I think there's something here for all readers of zombie fiction.
Many thanks, R.J. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for responding ;-)
It was my pleasure. I'm looking forward to Afterbirth, but it's going to be a while.
Life is short and there's just too many good books to read.
