From the back cover: ISIS terrorists are plotting to kill the Pope during his visit to America. The plan: Hijack a hospital ship in Haiti, convert it to a missile launcher, and cruise into Miami Harbor, unnoticed. Their only obstacle: Dr. Scott James is a volunteer on the ship, and he’s recruited a squad of Haitian zombies to stop the attack. But nothing adds up … until the last seven minutes.
The real Zombies of Haiti come alive in this story of a plastic surgeon, a man who “fixes people’s faces,” racing to stop a plot to kill the Pope during his Papal visit to America. Follow Dr. Scott James as he falls into an incredible world of psychotropic drugs, exotic ceremonies, and murder.
MEET JAKJAK, DEAD MAN: Jacques Jacobo, “Jakjak,” is the Haitian Finance Minister’s personal bodyguard. He’s just taken two bullets in the chest trying to stop an assassination attempt on his boss.
DR. SCOTT JAMES, TARGET: Dr. Scott James is a volunteer surgeon on a hospital ship anchored off the coast of earthquake-ravaged Haiti. He’s got his share of personal demons.
OMAR FAROK, MASTERMIND: Omar Farok wants to rule ISIS, and the world. He’s just taken over the hospital ship and converted it into a launch platform for a nuclear strike on Miami.
SANFIA, VODOUN BOKOR: Sanfia is the most powerful Vodoun priestess in Haiti. Omar Farok will pay her big money to turn Dr. James into a zombie.
ELIZABETH, THE WILDCARD: Beautiful Elizabeth is one of the most notorious freelance operatives in the world. She’s come to Haiti to defuse the bomb.
They’re all about to play The Zombie Game.
Dr. Shepard is in top form. From the very beginning this is an exciting read and it gets more exciting as you go on. The Pope is going to visit America. The Plan is to drop a missile on him wiping both him and Miami out of existence. What no one had counted on was Dr. James. He is planning on stopping them if they do not kill him first. With “The Zombie Game” Dr. Shepard has given us a thriller that becomes more and more exciting until the last hundred pages which is an extremely wild ride. Dr. Shepard is an excellent writer and knows how to twist your nerve endings as he tightens the suspense. What is totally fascinating is that everything that Dr. Shepard provides is perfectly believable and possible could happen some day. On top of everything this is quite an engrossing thriller that will have you muttering “oh, no” as you are reading as fast as you can to get to the next page. Don’t start this book late at night as it will cost you sleep sleep as you will not want to put it down. I am already looking forward to the next book in this series.
