The first episode in the acclaimed apocalyptic military thriller series by Craig DiLouie, Joe McKinney, and Stephen Knight!
As a new disease turns people into sadistic, laughing killers, in Boston, a battalion of light infantry struggles to maintain order. As the number of infected grows, the battalion loses control, and the soldiers find themselves fighting for their lives against the very people they once swore an oath to protect. During the ensuing collapse, the lost battalion learns the Army is still holding out in Florida, which has been cleared of the Infected. Harry Lee, its commander, decides the only hope for his men is to get there. But first they must cross more than a thousand miles of America that has been turned into a war zone, fighting a fearless, implacable, and merciless enemy.

With laughter, comes death....
Emerging from the smoking ruins of Boston, Lieutenant Colonel Harry Lee leads the First Battalion, 55th Infantry Regiment on a perilous trek to its besieged home post of Fort Drum.

Lee struggles to hold the battalion together while epitomizing its motto, "Bounding Forward."

The City of Brotherly Love is currently under the protection of General Anthony Bell, commander of the famed 56th Stryker Brigade, the Independence Brigade.

Can he snatch Lee from the hangman's noose, and can he guide his troops and his civilian charges through the gathering horde of maniacal killers? Or will they all die laughing?

Firstly Rc Bray puts in another fine performance, unfortunately the material is a little lacking.
After listening through the first 3 books in 4 sittings I could not tell you one characters name, they're all quite shallow, I just could not get a feel for any of them.
Every time any character has any sort of back story (the ex ranger police officer for example) it's a indication that they are going to die whereas the main protagonists (Lee I think and the woman with broken teeth) have about as much back story as a star trek red shirt.
The books come across as if they've been abridged, it really feels like chapters have been missed out, when the first book ended I had to check to see if I had only downloaded half the book
Going to give the rest of the series a miss

Enjoyed the story. Did notice some discrepancies, as with any long story. Sandra Rollings in the first book was said to have grown up in "Beantown". Then in book 3, she is from a small-town outside Atlanta. Otherwise, well written and creative.

waited so long..
but was it worth it!
I hands down love this series! Ever since I read the first book I'd been waiting for the others to be released. Very glad they finally were! The story is top notch though don't expect book 2 and 3 to be as gripping or edge of your seat as the first one. So many things happen it almost becomes a blur. As much as I love the narrator, his real talent shines when he has to cover less characters. Not a dig at the narrator though, he is, hands down, amazing. The second and third books deal with many, many more characters and it can be somewhat confusing at times to tell certain characters apart. Still, with all that said, pick up the first book.. or, go all in for the package deal on audible!
