With Georgia Mason gone, her adoptive brother Shawn is on a self destructive rampage. The News Organization he built with his much loved sister is at a loss as Shawn spends much of his time poking dead things with sticks, and trying to piece together just what the government is up to. When he is confronted with a new lead, suspicion runs amok, but that doesn't stop Shawn from looking for the truth among the dead. Could his sister still possibly be alive? Is there a cure for the Kellis-Amberly amplification? And why, after being bitten, did Shawn not amplify? Mira Grant gives us a wonderful second book to continue the adventure.. It has it all. Zombis, bad politicians, mad genius scientists...who could as for more?
