Description: "Dark, disturbing, and deliciously addictive" R.A. Evans, author of Asylum Lake
Welcome to the Nixon Healing and Research Center, playground for the maniacal Dr. Howard Nixon whose cancer research has him dabbling in the undead, and the women of Strandville disappearing. Unable to cure the lethal infection which turns its victims into mindless, flesh-hungry mob, Dr. Nixon discovers a medicinal use where the side-effects may be worse than terminal cancer.
Desperate for a fresh start after her painful divorce and the stillbirth of her first child, Miranda Penton accepts an unexpected job offer to join Nixon's security team but her recruitment is no coincidence. She holds the genetic key to Nixon's cure.
Nixon inseminates Miranda with a zombie fetus and holds her hostage, but her imprisonment is short-lived. A rescue team of locals led by her estranged ex-husband releases not only Miranda, but the infection on an unsuspecting hospital population. Miranda wrestles with the uncertain outcome of her pregnancy while trying to get away with her life.
The virus is spreading and must be contained. The center is going into lock-down. The group's get away is threatened by a homicidal security guard and a raging storm. The town of Strandville is ground zero for the zombie apocalypse and Miranda must escape because the fate of humanity lies with her unborn child.
In Strandville, there are worse fates than becoming undead.
Reviews: "This was a great story with many interesting characters..some that you can't wait to see attacked by the infected and others that you feel bad for and hope they make it out alive. The story had great detail, without being long winded. This was one of those stories that once I starting reading, I didn't want to stop. Looking forward to the next book in the series to find out what will happen next. I would definitely recommend this book and other books that I've read by Belinda Frisch."
