When protests turn violent in front of the US Embassy Kinshasa, only the foreign policy experts paid attention.
As civil war erupts and people rip each other apart in the streets of the African capital, a disinterested public across the globe turns the channel.
They should have prepared accordingly.
In an effort to avert disaster and preserve its self-image, an overwhelmed US Department of State dispatches a team of elite counterterrorist agents to bring their besieged people back alive.Agent Mark Steele, a rising star within the Division, and his team of gritty operatives are used to trudging through the worst dregs that society has to offer, all while operating from the shadows. But Steele's team is wading headfirst into a maelstrom of death so much worse than rebels in the streets.
A highly contagious microbe is spreading unchecked through the streets killing everyone in its wake only to bring them back again as the ravenous undead.

He cowers amongst the embassy staff praying for extraction from the hands of death, fearing his part to play in the epidemic.
Follow this harrowing tale of survival, duty, love and horror as the living dead bring the world to its knees.
**I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an HONEST review**
This book was FULL OF ACTION! Normally when I read a 'zombie book', it's from the perspective of civilians who don't really know what they're doing, or know too well what they need to do. It's not often that it's through the eyes of someone trained by the government, who knows how to truly handle himself. I quite enjoyed the journey!
A lot of attention to detail, while not feeling like it was bogged down in said detail. Very well done, and I look forward to the second installment.
