Deadline is the electrifying and critically acclaimed sequel to Feed, the “Astonishing” novel that launched the Newsflesh series — a saga of zombies, geeks, politics, social media, and the virus that runs through them all — from New York Times bestseller Mira Grant.
"Deft cultural touches, intriguing science, and amped-up action will delight Grant's numerous fans." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
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.

Having just finished book 2, I'm going back to revise my rating of book 1 (Feed) from four stars up to five. The author was right; she did what was best for the story. What can I say? I've already bought book 3 and started it. Amazing series. I'm completely hooked. Read full review

Not the five star read I remembered, which is sad. Shaun's casual violence bothered me more this time around. Particularly when I checked on the author's tumblr - which I unfollowed a while back ... Read full review
