Product Description

Review

"This has to be one of the best traditional zombie tales I've ever read... This is a zombie book for the ages."
--Seattle Post Intelligencer
 
"Maberry grounds the story with scientific confidence, spares no attention to detail, and presents the undead as more than faceless targets."
--Publishers Weekly

Format: Paperback
Dead of Night is an interesting zombie read.

If anyone has read Maberry's Zombie CSU, they will know exactly how this novel progresses. If you haven't read Zombie CSU yet, I suggest grabbing a copy - it's an interesting take on how organizations (like the CDC, police, military, etc) would try to contain and deal with a zombie apocalypse. Much of the data he presented in CSU was from interviews with first responders and such. Anyways, I digress...

Dead of Night starts out in a funeral home, where the corpse of an executed serial killer, Homer Gibbons, is being processed for burial. Unbeknownst to the mortician, Homer Gibbons was injected with a compound called Lucifer 113 by an insane prison doctor (and former defector from East Germany). Lucifer 113 is a bio-warfare weapon designed during the Cold War by Soviet Bloc scientists. He injected Gibbons because he wanted Gibbons to suffer a horrible fate - that of feeling his body slowly decompose in its grave over the next few months. Unfortunately, Lucifer 113 does not work as predicted and reanimates Gibbons in the midst of his embalming. Gibbons attacks the people at the funeral parlor (jokingly called a Transition Estate) and stumbles off into the darkness.

Police officers Dez Fox and J.T. respond to the 911 call and are attacked by the dead. Both officers are stunned by the actions of the infected and despite wanting to convince others of the horror, scarcely believe it themselves. To top it off, the state police called in for back-up seem to think Fox and J.T. have gone rogue and interfere with their efforts, which is further compounded by a paranoid political and military apparatus which feels that everyone in the county is already infected and therefore expendable (ala the movie Outbreak).

My wife and I read every book that is Zombie (there aren't many we don't own).

Both enjoyed this book while on a beach vacation. It's fast paced and the outbreak gets going quick. Reminded me of the movie "The Crazies" in some respects.

Decent characters, source of infection is explained, usual government secrecy and cover up....nothing too original but well written. I've read 5 books by Maberry now, and I find his humorous dialogue often refreshing.

Would make a good screenplay for an action/zombie outbreak flick.

I've read his books before and this is not a YA novel, aimed at adults

I read all three and found the first one ok! However the writing skill and plot decreased as the story progressed in the next 2 books. I can only describe the books as juvenile at best. Definitely not for the adult market!
