For the first time you get the story from a cops position. Zombies not just any kind of zombies but , the kind that are different fast slow, torn apart not torn apart. It all comes together in this book . You feel everything that the cop is going through and you hate it for him. Eddie goes through a night of hell while on shift. Not only does he loose his first partner but it continues on to go that almost everyone he tries to save along with him is lost eventually. While Eddie fights his way through the streets trying to save his own wife and 6 month old son. You see him torn between doing his job as a cop and trying to take care of his own.

I loved how that pulled you in it put the hard decisions before him and showed what some people actually go through while in a situation of crisis. The guilt of shooting someone that may or may not be dead in order to save your own life. Deciding whether to stay or go when he arrives at several rescue moments and even when he sees that one rescue area has become compromised struggling to try and save as many of them as he can as well.

Good intentions do not go to waste but not every thing goes as it is planned and sad to say that eventually by the end of the night he gets to find his wife and child but not without his own scars and scares. I look forward to reading more seeing how the author fleshes out the scene more in the other two books of this trilogy.
