Kurzbeschreibung

What if one of the world's top virologists predicts that a deadly virus will mutate into a highly contagious form causing people to turn into zombies? What if he creates the virus with intentions of making a cure, only to have it stolen before he can finish his work? Enter an agent working for a secret government agency whose mission is to protect U.S. interests. But when terrorists threaten his family, will revenge cause him to stray from his primary mission? Will the fate of the U.S. lie in the hands of a network of Zombie Apocalypse preparedness groups whose loyalties are not always clear?

Gary Ecks, a world-renowned scientist with an uncanny knack for predicting outbreaks of viral hemorrhagic fevers has a terrifying realization that one of these viruses will soon mutate into something that seemingly kills its victims, but actually brings them to a near death state, allowing them to move about and further spread the virus. He foresaw the arrival of a virus that could start the zombie apocalypse.

In an attempt to prevent the start of a zombie apocalypse, Gary believes he needs to create a vaccine before the virus naturally appears, so he needs the help of a colleague at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Natalie Wyler, to help create the very virus he predicted. She had pioneered a method to create viruses with specific genetic sequences.

Something convinces Natalie to help him in spite of every fiber in her being screaming out against it, but the two scientists are prevented from starting work on the vaccine. Little do they know that their activity at the CDC has also been flagged by a secretive shadow government organization. But what is their true agenda? Will they help stop a zombie virus outbreak, or act on a hidden agenda?

Further complications arise as the lab goes on furlough, separating Gary and Natalie while they each return to their hometowns, leaving the lab and the virus samples unattended.

A series of events leads Gary on a mission to find Natalie, and the goal to develop a vaccine becomes one to hunt for a cure.

4.0 von 5 Sternen How it all would start 7. April 2014
Von Sunshine Somerville - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Most zombie tales are told from the perspectives of everyday people and you never have any idea how the zombie virus actually started. Here, everything starts at the CDC and a clandestine government agency. How the virus comes into existence is actually the focus of the story. Once things get out of control – and of course they do – THEN you meet ordinary people who have to survive in the chaos that follows.
I really enjoyed the more scientific approach this book took. I believed that the author had done adequate research. Also, there were early questions of right and wrong and the moral complexities that would be involved here, adding some thoughtfulness without being too weighty. And it was a relief to be able to relate to the characters of Simon, Gary, and Natalie especially. The fact that the book is broken up by chapters with the “bad guy’s” perspective is interesting too, and these parts kept the tension going while also giving the reader insight the “good guys” didn’t have as they tried to stop the spread of the virus.
There were a few scenes that felt a bit forced, such as when Simon and Gary encounter rednecks and Simon kills them…which just kind of happens and they never look back. Also, the long ago college love-triangle element I didn’t think needed to be there at all, and sudden discussions about it in the midst of serious situations didn’t fit very well.
BUT, overall, I liked the pacing, the character development, and the way the story unfolded. The zombies were believable without being outlandish, and the gore elements were humanized so that this wasn’t just some fun romp of killing the undead.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A mentally stimulating, fun, action packed zombie apocalypse read 15. Dezember 2013
Von amazon reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This has been a fun book. That might seem strange to say about a zombie apocalypse story but the blend of characters; a couple of C.D.C. virus researchers, a single CIA agent and a healthy band of zombie apocalypse Preppers all combining their efforts to find a cure while fighting off zombies made for a mentally stimulating, action packed read.

Filled with twists and turns, mystery and suspense, The Z Contingency by W I Eganson is a well written book by an author who is definitely going to be making a lot of noise in the industry. The writer manages to keep our interest frfom page o page and hit us with action, suspense and thrills at the same time. It was a fun and enjoyable read.

I read the first few chapters or so free online and I had to buy the book to finish. The story and the characters are engaging and it really keeps you interested. I'm curious as heck about the special plant in the woods with the healing properties! What is it?! Can't wait to find out!
4.0 von 5 Sternen Zombies, Zombies, Zombies 16. April 2014

As I am not a believer in the supernatural, this take on the Zombie phenomenon is far more realistic than is typical. I enjoyed the story and it was an easy read.
