Brad Thor recommends
Day by Day Armageddon (2004)
(Day by Day Armageddon, book 1)
J L Bourne
"There is zombie fiction and then there is crawl-out-of-the grave-and-drag-you-to-hell zombie-fiction. 'Day by Day Armageddon' is hands-down the best zombie book I have 'ever' read. 'Dawn of the Dead' meets '28 Days Later' doesn't even come close to describing how fantastic this thriller is. It is so real, so terrifying, and so well written that I slept with not one, but two loaded Glocks under my pillow for weeks afterwards. J.L. Bourne is the new king of hardcore zombie action!"
