The outbreak tore the USA in two. The east remains a safe haven. The west has become a ravaged wilderness. They call it the Evacuated States. It is here that Henry Marco makes his living. Hired by grieving relatives, he tracks down the dead to deliver peace. Now Homeland Security wants Marco, for a mission unlike any other. He must return to California, where the apocalypse began. Where a secret is hidden. And where his own tragic past waits to punish him again. But in the wastelands of America, you never know who - or what - is watching you…

Very good.

This book is well written and the narrater is brill. This book is up the with "Day by Day Armageddon", "Morning star". As to it go into to much detail, what!! Its a book not a comic, some people.

My first zombie book!

Not a genre of book I have tried before so have nothing to compare it to. Plenty action, the main characters are interesting enough and the story is ok if a little predictable - I suspect that it is probably a quirk with this genre, that some of the characters are really like caricatures of movie actors and that being a bit predictable is probably part of the fun. If you can get into that frame of mind it is not a bad listen. A fair bit of suspending belief to go along with the book, but then its zombies... so what else can you expect to be doing but ignoring reality a bit! I would view it as a bit of fun - not bad, not great and passed some time.... Oh, its very gory, but strangely in an amusing sort of way at times :/ Not a Genre I will rush back to, but I am sure I might try another for a bit of passing time with a fairly simple, but pretty gory, story.

Zombies, action and a great story

If you could sum up The Return Man in three words, what would they be?

Lots of post-apocalyptic zombie action, engaging characters and well narrated action.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Return Man?

The massacre of the soldiers on the mountain.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

As with all audio books, female voices should be done by a female, not a man speaking falsetto.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but sadly impossible
