Summary
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.

Publishers Weekly Review
Grant (pseudonymous urban fantasy author Seanan McGuire) continues her postapocalyptic zombie series with this adrenaline-packed, quick-witted tale of medicine and mayhem. It's 2041, a year after Shaun Mason's sister and co-blogger, Georgia, became infected with the zombie virus (in 2010's Feed). After nearly three decades of rampant zombiism, procedures and protocols have evolved to keep humans safe, constrained, and scared. As Shaun struggles to cope with Georgia's death, a doctor from the Centers for Disease Control sets the After the End Times blogging crew to investigating a conspiracy around people with a reservoir condition-a state in which the virus goes live in just one area of the body-and the high death rate among reputable scientists trying to study them. Deft cultural touches, intriguing science, and amped-up action will delight Grant's numerous fans. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved. From: Reed Elsevier Inc.

Library Journal Review
A year has passed since Shaun Mason (Feed) and the journalist-bloggers from his high-profile news organization investigated the truth behind Kellis-Amberlee, the virus that was created 20 years earlier when human-made cures for cancer and the common cold mutated together. The resulting contagion led to the rising of the dead, bringing about the zombie apocalypse. When a CDC researcher uses a clone to fake her own death and shows up on Shaun's doorstep with a ravenous pack of zombies in tow, Shaun realizes that the mystery is far from solved. This second entry in Grant's trilogy is a keen and intelligent novel that takes a hard look at medical ethics, government corruption, and human responsibility. Grant, who also writes urban fantasy as Seanan McGuire, has a feel for the odd detail that makes sf believable, and Deadline rings true from beginning to end. Sure to appeal to fans of smart, subversive zombie lit in the vein of Max Brooks's World War Z. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
