Review: Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry

Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry
Source: purchased

I bought this book a few years ago at a used book store in San Francisco. The cover was why I picked it up. It has quite the creep factor, right? I took it home, put it on the bookshelf especially for TBR books and there it stayed until I signed up for the TBR Challenge this January. 

I don't know why I waited so long. It was really quite entertaining and a great take on the zombie novel. 

Zombies are engineered by Amirah, a brilliant woman in a bunker in Afghanistan for her terrorist husband, El Mujahid, with the funding of a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical heavy weight for the purpose of releasing them in America. The terrorists have one plan for them and the billionaire another. It is the job of the DMS and their new recruit, Joe Ledger, to figure out their plan and prevent a terrible plague from being released. If they aren't successful, it will be a true zombie apocalypse just like they have seen in the movies.

Lots of action, interesting science and really, scary zombies and bad guys. The good guys are mysterious and flawed but very likable. This made for a great vacation read. Fun, fun.

Happy Reading!

  1. I love Jonathan Maberry. I haven't picked this one up but now I need to. His Rot & Ruin series is amazing! Great review :)

  2. I haven't read anything else by him, but I definitely enjoyed his writing style. Will have to see what other books he has.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
