New this month from Permuted Press is Exit Zero by Neil A. Cohen.
"A pandemic is sweeping across New Jersey,
A state abandoned by the country and sealed off from the world.
The inhabitants left to kill or to die.
When scientific research into curing both hunger and obesity goes terribly wrong, a fast moving plague is unleashed that sweeps across the Garden State.
The victims have become horrific mutations of their former selves. But is this an accident, a terrorist attack, or part of a much larger plan?
A group of estranged friends must come together during the first 48 hours of the outbreak to journey through the chaos towards their only chance of escape, Exit 0 off of the Garden State Parkway.
A Soldier, a Scientist, a Detective, a Mobster, a Politician and a Prepper along with a beautiful yet dangerous woman from the Philippines are inexplicably bound together by a shadowy corporation. Along the way they learn that their friendships; their careers; in fact their entire lives may have never been as it appeared.
A Zombie story that reflects some of the hot button issue of today, from genetically modified organism (GMO) entering our day to day food supply to mass pandemics such as Ebola, to mass migration affecting the southern border. Exit Zero takes no sides but gleefully exploits all of our worst case scenario fears.
With influences from Soylent Green, The Boys from Brazil, World War Z and MTV’s Jersey Shore; Exit Zero is a unique story that describes in detail the origin of the zombie plague, how it spreads and why.
Details long missing from zombie lore are sure to please the zombie fan who wants answers.
Whether you love or fear zombies, and whether you love or fear New Jersey, you will love Exit Zero."
Exit Zero is available now in paperback and Kindle editions.
