Review
Grant (aka Seanan McGuire) concludes her zombie apocalypse trilogy (Feed; Deadline) with another thoughtful high-energy tale of life and politics among the dead and not-so-dead. Foremost among the latter category is journalist Georgia Mason. After she was infected with the amplified version of the Kellis-Amberlee virus that causes zombiism, Georgia’s brother, Shaun, responsibly shot her in the head. Georgia, aka Subject 7c, has been resurrected as a clone by the Centers for Disease Control. As she tries to figure out why she’s alive again, Shaun and the rest of the news team, hiding from the corrupt CDC at a mad scientist’s lab in Oregon, are tasked with discovering how Shaun became immune to the virus and acquiring one of the new breed of mosquitoes that’s spreading it. Zombie attacks, family members in physical and emotional jeopardy, and vast government conspiracies all contribute to a heady tale that reaches a satisfying conclusion. Agent: Diana Fox, Fox Literary. (June) --Staff (Reviewed April 30, 2012) (Publishers Weekly, vol 259, issue 18, p)
