Story Over View -

Brian Kingston, a captain with good intentions but a heavy drinking problem, jumps at the opportunity to make more money than he can imagine on a deep-sea dive aboard the search and rescue submarine, The Betty Loo. He quickly discovers just what he’s gotten himself, and his crew, into. The Betty Loo will be going to suicidal depths on a mission to rescue The Peacemaker, a sub once thought to be unsinkable. After receiving an anonymous threat on the day of departure, Brian is left with no choice but to continue on the mission. 

But the depths of the sea aren’t the only problems ahead. Upon arrival to The Peacemaker, he realizes that though not all the bodies are dead, there is no one to rescue. The crewmembers, both old and new, have to trust one another and fight for their lives against the adapting undead or join them in the floating graveyard that is The Peacemaker.
Review -
Wow! The detail in describing the attacking zombies is second to none. As the zombies snap and rip the flesh of their victims it creates a good visual in your mind.
The author does an excellent job at creating the state of despair and just general creepiness. Romero would be proud. 
What I guess I found most to my liking, other than the zombies, is that you get a good feel for the characters, their background and life issues that got them to their point in the story.
After reading their background, you can understand why some of them live in the shadows and partake of such suicide missions.
Imagine the feeling of being in a submarine full of zombies and under the darkness of the sea. The premise of the story is one of the factors that sets it apart from the crowded zombie field. 
If you like zombies and who don't, this should be a good read for you. The zombie craze has caused a lot of subpar products to be released to the market, I'm happy to say this is well above most of them.
Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars
