Monday, 1300 Hours: Joe Ledger kills terrorist Javad Mustapha, aka Patient Zero, with two point-blank shots from his Glock .45.


Wednesday, 0800 Hours: Patient Zero rises from the dead…


When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week, there's either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills... and there's nothing wrong with Joe Ledger's skills. Ledger, a Baltimore detective assigned to a counterterrorism task force, is recruited by the government to lead a new ultrasecret rapid-response group called the Department of Military Sciences (DMS) to help stop a group of terrorists from releasing a dreadful bio-weapon that can turn ordinary people into zombies.


"Plenty of man-to-zombie combat…a fast and furious read."—Publishers Weekly


"As palatable as your favorite flavor of ice cream.  A memorable book."—Peter Straub
