Yes, the zombies are the problem, not everyone you run into. The Sinking Man series is written to have several short novellas released throughout the year and is geared toward TV adaptation.
Ben and his wife, Sarah, had a front-row seat for the apocalypse. Unfortunately, they were from different sides of the country. Separated by a ravaging virus, the couple finds themselves struggling to reunite during a time that feels like the end of days.
While Ben sat in his secluded upscale riverside house, infected people ravaged the countryside. The plan was simple. If either of them ever got separated, they would make their way home.
Fans of Keith C. Blackmore, Robert Kirkman, and Max Brooks, will want to listen to this series!Amazon | Audible | Barnes & Noble | iTunes
I really enjoyed this story! If you follow my reviews, you have probably noticed that I am a rather eclectic reader. There just aren’t a lot of genres that I won’t read but there are a few that I tend to enjoy more than others and I cannot resist a good end of the world story. Throw in some zombies and I am even happier. I was really excited to read this novella-length piece and I ended up having a fantastic time with it.

oooh zombies, it's been a while. It looks like a good first novel in the series
The fact that this takes place in my area (northeast FL) piques my interest! 🙂
More zombies, eeeeek
I feel like it's been awhile since I've seen a book with zombies! This sounds like a good read.
I love zombie novels. Though I haven't indulged in one in a long time. I might just download this one. It's short enough, for sure.
Glad you enjoyed this one. I think I will check this one out.
Excellent review! I do love this sort of book with survival prep and living.
