Vince is counting down the days he has left when one of his teammates is injured by a strange creature that closely resembles a dinosaur.

While the rest of his team is excited about his discovery and speculating about what it could mean, both for Genizyz and society as a whole, Vince worries about his injured teammate Sandy.

Everything changes when Sandy kills another member of their team, it is not long before camp is overrun with zombies.

Vince must face his fears as he fights these terrible monsters while grappling with other teammates about how to handle the discovery. They insist on returning with what he believes to be the zombie causing contagion while he wants to leave it all behind in the deep jungle. If you like suspenseful zombie stories that end with a bang, this story is for you. Fans of Jurassic Park, the Walking Dead, and World War Z will enjoy this novel.

Sneak Peek

I warned her. She didn't listen. Now look what's happened.

I firmed my resolve.

This is the only way.

A zampy cried out, a noise like a sharp bark. The monsters could not know what I was planning but we had made assumptions about them before that proved wrong so even though I knew it irrational to think they could read my mind I was not so sure. We didn't know how they communicated with their zombie minions so I couldn't rule out telepathy.

The zampys could sense my presence, even though the dungeon was windowless, of that I was sure.

These lizard monsters that resembled dinosaurs were far more intelligent than any of my co-workers supposed.

My bag was heavy with ammunition and my knockoff Colt .45 was carefully concealed inside my jacket. Nobody had ever thought to install a metal detector, as the remaining team leader I was above suspicion and had passed the guard without question.

The thought I would destroy my own discovery was unthinkable.

Thank you, Sharon.

I had planned every move and needed less than a minute to dispatch the monsters on the other side. They were behind bars so it would be like shooting fish in a barrel.

Easier really. I have no refraction issues.

It could all be over in a minute.

Yet I hesitated.

I had decided to stop this madness long ago. Each time I had tried, Sharon had foiled me or convinced me to do otherwise.

She cannot stop me now.

And that was part of why I was finally here. Sharon was now sequestered in a windowless padded room. She could only speak with grunts and groans, assuming she still knew what it meant to be human.

She could no longer use her brain. While I had already designated her a zombie, the higher-ups of Genizyz were not yet ready to accept the truth that was right in front of them.
Lurching like a dead woman walking.
