The dead walk the land and humans hide in small towns with walls of stone and debris for protection, constantly keeping the living dead at bay.

But when the kidnapping of one of the companions goes bad and men die, the group finds themselves on the wrong side of the law, and a town out for blood. Trapped in a hotel, surrounded on all sides, it will be up to Henry to save the day with a gamble that may not only take his life, but that of his friends as well. In a dead world, when justice is not enough, there is always vengeance.

Talk about Dead Town: A Deadwater Story (Book 8)

This isn't really a Deadwater book, as has been pointed out in other reviews. It's a book with three stories, one of which happens to be about the characters from the Deadwater series. It's a mere 196 pages long and would have been even shorter had a type size normally used in books been used in this one. Yet we're still charged as if it were a full length novel. It's definitely not a value. The stories themselves leave much to be desired.

The first story concerning the Deadwater characters is the best of the lot, which isn't saying much. The author takes from an earlier book in the series and places the group in another town with rickety walls and a ruthless police chief and his henchmen. The plot is predictable with no surprises. Henry and company stumble into the town, run afoul of the police chief, fight desperately for their lives, win the day and the undying admiration of the town folk, and then 'ride off' into the sunset to find further adventure. Some of the sequences in this book left me shaking my head in bewilderment and frustration. In the opening the group find themselves outside the town with a group of zombies approaching. The town folk refuse Henry and company entry until the undead menace has been taken care of. And here is where the authors' usual lack of research again shows. Whether it's simply he doesn't know how to do the research or just doesn't want to take the time I don't know, but it is exasperating and detracts from ones enjoyment of the story being read. Henry throws a "military grade fragmentation grenade" all of 15 feet. One assumes that the grenade is the standard U.S. military M67. It has a lethality radius of 5 meters (16 feet) and a casualty radius of 15 meters (49 feet). This would have put Henry and company within the casualty radius if not the lethality radius. Next we find that Cindy "her blonde hair flying about her like a halo, sprayed the ghouls on full auto." A few paragraphs over we find her "spraying" a pair of zombies in police uniforms. She's "amazed when they didn't go down despite multiple shots to the chest." She's informed by Jimmy that the zombies are wearing bullet proof vests. First, why would Cindy waste precious ammunition with full auto fire when she knows that only headshots destroy the ghouls? Secondly, the standard issue police vest is rated to handle handgun calibers only. A rifle round would go through it with no problem. Now the argument could be made that the zombie cops were wearing SWAT or military grade OTV. But if that were the case she would have been able to see them. It's painfully obvious that Mr. Giangregorio is ignorant of the workings of firearms and military tactics and equipment, but that's no excuse for sloppy writing. It doesn't take an expert to identify these and other problems. Even the least knowledgeable reader would see many of them. I won't go any further on this matter; suffice it to say a little research and a decent editor would have corrected these mistakes making the story more real and enjoyable.

The second story, `The Days End', I will only touch on briefly. It's a very sick and twisted tale with the rape of a small child and cannibalism at its core. I was disgusted by the subject matter and wouldn't recommend this book based on this story alone.

The third story, `One Last Chance' is a rip off (and a poor one indeed) of `Inferno', the first part of Dante Alighieri's masterpiece `The Divine Comedy'. In it we find Chad Wilcott on a journey through the various circles of hell in an attempt to save his son who is stricken with an "acute case of leukemia." This is set up when the doctor refuses to treat the child. I can't imagine any doctor doing any such thing. After a circus witch tells him how to save his son Chad murders a child molester who just happens to live a few doors down and is promptly (all within eight months) tried, convicted, and executed. This defies all reason. The quickest execution in recent memory was that of Timothy McVeigh, the `Oklahoma City Bomber' and it still took six years for the process. The story itself is short and lacking in any meaningful dialog between Chad and his `guide' Virgil. This was a huge letdown. Mr. Giangregorio had the chance to write something really meaningful here and passed it up for a few shoddy action sequences. In the final scene before meeting Lucifer, Chad has to fight and overcome the Guardian of the Gates of Hades, Cerberus which he learned about in Sunday school. I don't know which church the author attended, but I never learned about Greek and Roman mythology in any Sunday school I ever attended nor can I find mention of Cerberus in any of the many Bibles I have. Here again Mr. Giangregorios' lack of research lets the story down. This story of all in this book had the possibility of being something very special. If the author would have taken his time and fleshed it out more. Perhaps having the son receive treatment but not responding very well while the father is going through the trial process. This would have made the story more believable. Adding more dialog between Chad and Virgil in the journey through hell could have pushed the story and made it into a thoughtful commentary. But that would require a level of skill that is far above the sophomoric writing abilities of the author.

The one positive I found in this book were the surprising lack of spelling and grammatical errors. This is encouraging.
Mr. Giangregorio is a prolific writer. Perhaps therein lays the problem. Maybe rather than pump out book after book like a sex crazed bunny, if he would slow down and take his time with a single book he may write an astounding tale worthy of his fans.
There are 3 stories in this book.
The first one has the Dead Water characters in it - but it is short and not very fulfilling if you are looking for more in the Dead Water series.

The other 2 short stories have nothing to do with the series at all.
There is no mention on the book or in the description that this is not a full book in the Dead Water series.
I have read all the deadwater books and pretty much all of Giangregario's work . As a fan I was disappointed to the extreme at how short it was and in the third person for the characters. Not worth the money if you like the Deadwater books. Read it at bookstore it should take you about 20 minutes.I do look forward to another installment of the series and hope it is longer and more entertaining.
I was very disappointed in this short story being called book 8. This is false advertizing! The story was ok, but it hardly qualifies as being in the same league as the other 7 books. Also including a quiz about the harry potter books as a filler is just lame. Im done with this series.

Henry and company are at it again in this new book and I loved every second of it. Can't wait for book 9!
