LZR-1143: Infection by Bryan James

LZR-1143: Infection (Book One of the LZR-1143 Series) - Bryan James

 Synopsis: (Amazon)

He used to be someone. He used to be in pictures. 

Until he was convicted of murdering his wife and condemned to a life sentence in a psychiatric prison, Mike McKnight was a movie star. A real, live action hero. But the mysterious circumstances surrounding his beloved wife's death pointed a damning finger at just one person: him. He was tried by a world that hated him. He was convicted by a jury who never doubted his guilt. He was discarded and forgotten, locked away by a society that moved on. 

At least until the zombies showed up. 

From a drugged stupor, he emerges into a world that has crumbled and where mankind is on the verge of elimination. He is suddenly thrust into a nightmare of epic proportions when the dead rise as a brutal and terrifying plague on the world of the living. In a landscape littered with post-apocalyptic terrors, Mike and a handful of survivors battle humans and zombies alike, fleeing headlong through danger and despair. 

Over the hellscape of a dying city, to the doubtful retreat of the mountainous countryside, Mike fights to stay alive in a world of the dead, recover his memories, and retrieve a cure to the most threatening plague the world has ever known.

Misanthrope's Assessment:

It was a fun read.  Well written, adventurous zombie novel.  I did find that the 'twist' was far to easy to figure out, had it figured out in the first chapter, so that when it was finally revealed, eh... meh about sums up my reaction.  Then, the author just stops.  Like he got bored, or decided that most likely other readers would feel as I did, with the 'meh', so he tried to hook them into buying the next story.

I will not be purchasing any more of this series, and I am unlikely to even sample any of this author's other wares.  If he has any.
