Doctor Eleanor Armitage is under no illusions that people find her job to be macabre. That she spends her days surrounded by the dead would be understood had she been a funeral director or even a forensic pathologist. But Eleanor studies the life-cycles of insect on decomposing bodies at the Forensic Anthropology Center–an acre of ground where bodies are left in various conditions to decompose for science.
Working late one night with her colleague Robert Dane, they discover a couple of the bodies in the grounds have been disturbed. When they head out to try to figure out who has been tampering with the bodies, one of the dead begins to move.
Trapped in a high-security research center, enclosed by ten feet, razor-wire topped walls, they find themselves surrounded by the living dead.
Suddenly Eleanor has to learn if her science is enough to save their lives… (from amazon)
This was an interesting short read that I read in just over two hours. I was sucked in from the start and was unable to put this book down.
It contained an interesting theory for zombies and I found the theory to be well thought out. I liked that there was a theory present as I find that in zombie novels many do not contain a theory to why zombies have suddenly appeared.
However I felt that the novel ended half-way through the story and would have liked the novel to continue in this one volume.
Overall an interesting short read, that I recommend for zombie fans.
