3.0 von 5 Sternen Zombiecalypse in San Antonio 3. Februar 2011
Von NMK
Format:Taschenbuch
So mein erstes Buch von McKinney! Ist es gut? Hmm, es war gut, bis ich zu den letzten 20 Seiten kam....Der Autor hat durch einen - meiner Meinung nach völlig - überhasteten Abschluss, die ganze über 200 Seiten aufgebaute Atmosphäre mit einem Schlag zunichte gemacht.

Das Buch handelt - wie sollte es anders sein - über eine Zombieepedemie. Ein Polizist gerät direkt hinein und der Leser begleitet ihn durch die ganze Nacht. Der Autor legt ein schnelles Tempo vor und lässt Schlag auf Schlag eine Aktion nach der anderen folgen. Dies mach er ganz gut, das Buch ist rasant, es wird nie langweilig, es ist gutes Popcorn-Kino.
Einzig dieser Schluß...Aber darüber soll sich jeder sein eigenes Bild machen. Ohne ihn hätte locker "Dead City" 4 Sterne bekommen.

Ich werde aber McKinney noch eine Chance geben. Beim Nachfolgeband: Apocalypse of the Dead

2.0 von 5 Sternen just another boring zombie apocalypse... 27. Juli 2010
Von Shooter
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Zombies in San Antonio, Texas and cop Eddie tries to get to his wife and kid. The zombies are not really dead, just victims of a virus that makes them rot and hungry for human meat. Yawn. McKinney sends his hero through endless action sequences, but suspense and atmosphere are completely missing. Characters pop up and get killed, there's nobody to care for, not even hero Eddie, who stays as bland as McKinneys writing. Skip this.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Like One of the Best Zombie Movies ,,, In My Head 12. Februar 2007
Von Josh Brooks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I've read my share of horror novels. It's mainly all that I read. I'm the type of reader that gives what I'm reading cinematic detailing in my head as I read it, and I have never had so much ease and fun while doing this as I had with Dead City.

Joe McKinney captured the true essence of what makes a good zombie tale. You have your usual substance of gore, relentless crowds of zombies, the apocalyptic world, and so on. But what truly made the book was the depth and power McKinney put behind his main character, Eddie Hudson. Eddie was just a regular guy working his late-night shift as a police officer when all hell broke lose in his life. The book tells the story of Eddie as he fights for his life, accompanies many side characters, and struggles to reach his wife and 6 month old son.

What was also interesting is the reasoning that McKinney gave to the dead coming back to life. That being that a recent string of hurricanes randomly exposing a virus to the Gulf Coast. Simple. Also, the characters in the book question the zombie genre themselves. From Eddie's first assumption of the reanimated dead being zombies, him uttering the word "zombie" for the first time, a character in the book being a zombie chatroom discussionist, and other side-notes about the existence of zombies.

One negative note about the book is its ending. It was a little too formulaic for me. Up until the last 3 chapters, McKinney didn't really go against zombie movie formula. He would introduce characters, make you get involved with them, only to have their limbs ripped off a few chapters later. When it came to the end - although what you were rooting for occurs - it becomes just a little too formulaic. But it's not really something I should gripe about when comparing it to the brilliance that is the rest of the book.

Joe McKinney has a great sense of writing and character development, and I really can't wait to see what he terrifies us with next.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Day of the Zombies 8. Januar 2007
Von Joshua Koppel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Texas has been hit hard by hurricanes and Houston is under water. North, in San Antonio, the weather has been better and they are taking in refugees. But for one policeman, things are about to become a nightmare. He is forced to terminate an argument with his wife in order to respond to a call in a bad part of town. It seems that there is some sort of street brawl going on. But after responding, the truth begins to come out. What at first looks like a gang fight is revealed to be far deadlier. Some crazy people are attacking everyone they can. They stagger about and seem unstoppable. Bullets don't seem to faze them. Many are seriously wounded but pay it no mind. To make things worse, they seem to want to bite and eat people. For lack of a better explanation, they are described as zombies. A bite from one is deadly. Their numbers seem to increase very rapidly and our hero is the only one to escape this altercation.

Then the real horror begins as he quickly realizes this is not just a local thing. The whole town seems to be overrun with the zombies. The day, and night, becomes a fight for survival and a quest to find his wife and baby. His travels have him run into other survivors, some who continue to survive and some who don't. Intermittent cell phone service lets him know his wife is alive, but not where she is. In this time of crisis, some people band together and help while others are quite the opposite. Just how this story ends is left to the reader to discover but I will say it is not a standard ending but it works very well.

This is an interesting story. Zombies are becoming the rage again in books and this is one of the better offerings. At first it reminded me of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comics but it quickly found a voice of its own. I found it hard to put this one down as I had to know what was going on. We never really find out what caused the zombies. Was it a mutated germ or did something in a bio-lab escape due to the hurricanes? We don't know. We also never find out how the zombies congregate so quickly (although the question is asked many times). But I do know I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to more from this author. Check it out.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you love living dead this is one for you!!! 8. Januar 2007
Von J. Griffin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I couldnt put it down from the moment I started reading it!!If there was ever a book that should be word for word produced into a movie,then this is it!!I would love to see this on the big screen.From one moment to the next Eddie Hudson who is a police officer finds himself in amazing situations tring to find his wife and child.I have to say this is by far one of the best written Living Dead books I have read in a while.There are no weird mind reading Orbs or freak zombie animals or evil vs good monsters,just good old plain dead coming back to life and that should be enough to scare the heck out of you!!This is one I wont sell as soon as Im finished,this one is going on my shelf right next to I am Legend.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dead City: a survival horror thrill ride! 11. November 2006
Von Matt Staggs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
[...]
"Dead City" is a fantastic tale of survival horror that starts with a bang and never lets up. Occupying the middle ground between police procedural and zombie thriller, Joe McKinney's first novel is the tale of a lone patrolman searching for his family over the course of one horrific night.

The time is now: Texas has been pummeled by a series of brutal hurricanes, with refugees scattered across the Lone Star State in search of shelter. Many of them have settled in San Antonio, inadvertently bringing a new kind of plague with them: one that transforms those infected into bloodthirsty zombies.

Patrolman Eddie Hudson, a young man with a wife and newborn baby, is working the evening shift when all hell breaks loose. Dispatched to what he thinks is a simple fistfight, Hudson finds himself plunged head-first into the apocalypse.

Confronted with the ravenous infected, Hudson barely escapes with his life - only to find that the entire city has succumbed to the zombie onslaught.

Hudson is suddenly alone, and thousands of zombies stand between him and his family. He might just see them again, if he can survive the night.

Hudson's story is a real thrill for the reader, jam-packed with fast driving, shooting, desperate stand-offs and lots of blood. McKinney, a San Antonio homicide detective by trade, writes with an authenticity that brings the events of "Dead City" to bloody, grasping life.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Solid zombie pageturner 23. Januar 2007
Von Frank Clover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I stumbled across Dead City at the bookstore thinking it was a reprint of the Shane Stevens crime novel, but as a zombie movie fan, I (luckily) couldn't resist buying it. McKinney doesn't add anything new to the zombie oeuvre but does deliver plenty of head-shot action written with assurance. The ending is somewhat abrupt and anti-climactic, a minor quibble with an otherwise excellent piece of 21st century pulp.
