From the Publisher: Shaun Mason is a man without a mission. Not even running the news organization he built with his sister has the same urgency as it used to. Playing with dead things just doesn't seem as fun when you've lost as much as he has.

But when a CDC researcher fakes her own death and appears on his doorstep with a ravenous pack of zombies in tow, Shaun has a newfound interest in life. Because she brings news-he may have put down the monster who attacked them, but the conspiracy is far from dead.

Now, Shaun hits the road to find what truth can be found at the end of a shotgun.

But really – WHY haven’t you read Feed? Go do it now!


There’s no middle book blues in this book. Deadline is just as good as Feed.

I’ve been trying to find the words to review this without repeating the same gushing from my review of Feed – but I haven’t had much luck.

I love that Georgia’s absence was never felt because of Shaun’s constant internal dialogue with her. I love that his staff never thought less of him because of that dialogue.

The ending – somewhat predictable, but it still left me speechless. BUT WHY DO YOU HATE US MIRA GRANT? Why WHY must you always leave us with these terrible cliffhangers?

You need to read this series people. DO IT!

    I liked this book. Read it hmm maybe back in September. A bit predictable as you said but still pretty darn good.
