Publisher: Self
Genre: Fiction- Adult: Apocalyptic Science Fiction, Zombie Fiction, Conspiracy Fiction, Horror

Journalist Hunter Morgan investigates a suspicious connection between Chen-Zamora Pharmaceuticals and U.S. politicians. His curiosity is aroused when the White House announces an exclusive deal with Chen-Zamora to make all the experimental vaccines and serums for the U.S. military to treat Ebola patients in West Africa. It turns out that Congressman Mason Fuller, who married into the Chen family, serves on a Congressional committee that approved funding for a DARPA-run Ebola treatment and biological warfare prevention program called The Ebola Mutations Research Project. While Hunter investigates, his own little girl becomes sick with fever.

Review: Short, but action packed. Ms Peake delivered an enthralling read.
Ms Peake has a very interesting and unique twist on the zombie virus. We follow Hunter as he runs down a story on a connection between a pharmaceutical company and the government. The deeper he digs, the more he discovers things aren't what they seem.
I was pulled into the story, following Hunter as he tracks down leads from the US to West Africa all the while we are left to wonder what's going on with Hunter's daughter. While he's trying to save the world, is danger brewing on his home turf.
Ms Peake pulls you into the story and keeps you reading with lots of action and twists to keep you on your toes.
