The Zombie Game
By Glenn Shepard
Genre: Action/Adventure
Publisher: Mystery House
Book Description:
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. 

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 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 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 is the most powerful Vodoun priestess in Haiti. Omar Farok will pay her big money to turn Dr. James into a zombie. 

Beautiful Elizabeth is one of the most notorious freelance operatives in the world. She’s come to Haiti to defuse the bomb. 
"The Zombie Game" has it all ... twists, turns, and tons of action. Ben Lieberman, best selling author of "Odd Jobs" and "The Carnage Account." 
Book Review:
The Zombie Game is about a terrorist group, ISIS, wanting to assassinate the Pope. In order for them to fulfill their plan, they have to steal a medical ship. In the process, the leader of the group, wants Sanfia to create a zombie army which involves Dr. James in the scheme of things.

The Zombie Game is intriguing! When I first started the book, I wasn't sure what the whole story was supposed to be about, but when I really started getting into the book, it made sense. The "zombies" in The Zombie Game actually surprised me. I guess I might have been expecting The Walking Dead zombies. I felt these zombies were more mind controlled.

I will admit that I have a soft spot for Jakjak. I felt like the other characters brushed him aside even when he was trying to save them. I found that made him more "noticeable." ISIS's plans were actually awesome. Sometimes, I think "bad guy" plans are lame, but Mr. Shepard did a great job thinking their part out.

I would recommend this book to anyone into thriller, suspense or fiction. Overall I think The Zombie Game is four and a half stars!
