REVIEW: Deck Z - The Titanic

Deck Z: The Titanic
Authors: Chris Pauls and Matt Solomon

I've read a lot of books about the Titanic disaster. Factual books. Fictional narratives. Murder mysteries. Action and exciting adventures involving the cargo and even raising the damaged ship from the depths. But, I can honestly say, this is the first time I've read a story that placed zombies on board the doomed ocean liner.

I loved it!

The basic premise: An unknown plague rips through China, killing thousands. A German scientist manages to get samples of the contagion and takes it back to his homeland to find a cure. Others want to use the disease as a weapon. So, the scientist steals the only vial of the contagion and boards Titanic for America. Unfortunately, a spy follows him onboard with the intention of stealing back the plague-filled metal vial so he can return it to Germany, but not before testing it to be sure it contains the correct vile pathogen. The last days of the Titanic are filled with an epic battle below-decks to contain the infected.

This is a action-packed, tension-filled zombie tale! The authors used the names of well-known crew members and passengers to battle zombies. The action continued right up until Titanic slipped beneath the waves, heading to the bottom.

Anyone fascinated by the Titanic story, or who just likes zombie tales, will enjoy this book. It's a relatively quick read at 225 pages. Definitely worth reading!

Chris Pauls and Matt Solomon also collaborated to publish The Giant Smugglers in 2016.
