December 2011 – Z-Boat – Suzanne Robb
A Dark & Mysterious Zombie Thriller

(Click Book to purchase from Amazon.com)


Z-Boat by Suzanne Robb is not your typical zombie slasher novel. There’s no ‘the world went to hell’ section, well maybe a little but it’s in a useful prologue. There’s no lonely band of humans battling the undead, well not in the typical sense...
Z-Boat is something a bit different. The build up is slow & methodical, like a good cold war espionage thriller. What you get in Z-Boat is a Clive Cussler-esque adventure story with more twists & turns than a submarine communication wire. The setting is a mysterious mission in the not too distance future. The worn out old sub & her Captain must be up for one more big money payout – a salvage job...
But, things don’t go to plan. Who can you trust in the crew? The hard-drinking Captain has to pick & choose. My first choice goes to my favourite character Ally..she’s great.
I won’t ruin the story, the opening chapters will introduce the crew to you – you decide who you trust. Beware, there are more secret agendas than oxygen release valves on this submarine.
This is a solid first novel from an accomplished short story writer & it shows – the script it tight, the text near-perfect & taking into account the atmospheric build up, it’s well-paced & no page is wasted.
In summary, this is a cracking almost sci-fi horror adventure with a hint of Alien & Firefly about it.
Hats off to Ms Robb, this is an excellent undersea adventure & I also tip my cap as the cover & editing is superb.
