"Through a combination of tight, well-structured plots and fully realized characters, Chesser has emerged as one of the top indie writers in the business." Joe McKinney - Two-time Bram Stoker Award winner, and best-selling author of the Dead World series. Ghosts, Book 8 in the bestselling Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse series, picks up where Warpath, Book 7 ends. Cade Grayson, father, husband, and former Delta Force operator collected his fair share of ghosts as the Omega virus ravaged the United States, turning the majority of her population into mindless automatons hungering for human flesh. Wearing incredulous stares, the faces of those ghosts-dozens of men, women, and children he was unable to save during his many forays into the Z-infested wasteland-visit him nightly during the early morning hours when defenses are dulled and REM sleep has him in its firm grip. For others who lost contact with loved ones during the frantic first hours and days of the Omega outbreak, their ghosts manifest in the nagging possibility that a wife or child or mother or sibling may still be alive out there, somewhere, struggling to survive amongst the multitudes of walking corpses and roving bands of murderous breathers. So as the Eden survivors prepare their rural Utah compound for the coming fall and winter they find that the herds of dead patrolling the nearby State Route aren't their only enemy. Idle time seems to be giving power to their ghosts. And with each perceived whiff of familiar perfume, or flash in the side vision of a familiar form that proves to be nonexistent, the lure of wanting to know their fate begins to affect some of the group adversely. Even after attaining a modicum of closure in the high country of central Idaho, Duncan Winters continues to seek solace for his loss at the bottom of a whiskey bottle. And still struggling with the post-traumatic stress from being held concubine in Robert Christian's mansion in Jackson Hole, Daymon's girlfriend Heidi hides from her ghosts below ground, spending nearly every waking moment tethered to the HAM radio by a pair of headphones, scouring the airwaves for other survivors. Meanwhile, still healing from the wounds suffered in Idaho, former BLM firefighter Daymon Bush ponders what ultimately became of his mom. Face-to-face with thousands of dead and ultimately forced to turn back short of her home in the suburbs south of Salt Lake City, Daymon can't shrug off the baggage of the thwarted rescue attempt. Similarly affected, former Jackson Hole Chief of Police Charlie Jenkins trudges through the day-to-day machinations necessary for survival, hollow of heart, all the while wrestling with the idea of venturing to Salt Lake City in search of his missing adult-aged daughter. As winter looms and hordes of living dead continue migrating about the countryside, will the group finish their preparations and reconcile with their ghosts before venturing topside becomes the exception to the norm? Can Daymon juggle Heidi's internal problems and his own desire to know what happened to his mom, all while continuing to pull his weight for the greater good of the Eden Compound? Will Duncan take the first step and put the plug in the jug so he can get on with living? Will Cade and Brook succeed in cultivating in their daughter Raven the level of self-sufficiency necessary to survive her new world? And will Taryn, Wilson, and Sasha strike a balance between their personalities long enough to make it through a day without turmoil-let alone the long dark days and months ahead of them? Or will Mister Murphy-of Murphy's Law fame-intervene and fracture the group for good? Come along and find out who has what it takes to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse.

A Pound of Flesh, Book 4 in the Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse series, picks up the day after "In Harm's Way: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse" left off. Outbreak - Day1 Like a fragile house of cards in a hurricane, Presidents, Premiers, entire governments and their ruling bodies disappeared instantly. Some had ensconced themselves in deep underground bunkers or remained holed up in fortified strongholds, but history would tell that most had been swallowed up by the dead - never to be heard from again. WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD Outbreak - Day 9 Reeling from a surprise attack, and with two fires burning out of control, Schriever AFB goes on high alert. Former CDC Scientist Sylvester Fuentes, the apparent target, is killed along with his assistant Jessica Hanson, Brook's brother Carl and a handful of others. Destroyed in the conflagration was the Omega antiserum Fuentes had been working to perfect, and just hours prior had tested successfully on one of the newly infected. Meanwhile, returning prematurely from a mission to set off two nukes in the path of an advancing horde of living dead numbering several hundred thousand strong, and with his Delta Force commander Mike Desantos infected and dying from the Omega virus, Cade Grayson was forced to do something no friend should have to. Then, shortly after taking Desantos's life, and while still cradling the hard charging operator's corpse, the low rumble of the two nuclear detonations signaling the mission's likely success rolled over Schriever. Immediately, Delta Force Captain Cade Grayson begins to formulate a plan that will send him hurtling on a collision course with the parties responsible for the terrorist attack. Six hundred miles away in Eden, Utah, Duncan Winters, Vietnam-era aviator, hopes to recuperate and ride out the apocalypse in his survivalist/ Doomsday prepper brother Logan's compound. In Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the New American capitol and fiefdom of Robert Christian, well-connected billionaire and self-appointed President, Daymon Bush, former BLM firefighter, bides his time with one burning desire: to find his girlfriend Heidi even if it ultimately kills him. Will Cade successfully lobby President Clay and embark on a new mission in order to extract a pound of flesh for Carl and Mike Desantos? Will Brook Grayson and her eleven-year-old daughter Raven continue to temper themselves against the new dangers inside and outside the wire at Schriever? Will Daymon accomplish his goal and survive Jackson Hole? Can the much older Duncan find a way to fit in with his younger brother Logan's prepper friends? Will newly promoted General Ronnie Gaines fit in with the late Commander's fractured Delta team? Can the human race find a way to survive the legions of migrating zombies?

Some had ensconced themselves in deep underground bunkers or remained holed up in fortified strongholds, but history would tell that most had been swallowed up by the dead - never to be heard from again. Since that last normal Saturday in July, the Omega virus has indiscriminately delivered destruction and death to all four points of the compass-the latter having recently been visited upon former Delta Force soldier Cade Grayson and the small group of civilian survivors making their home in the subterranean compound near Eden, Utah. In the three weeks since mounting a brash rescue mission to a zombie-infested Los Angeles and returning home to find lives of loved ones hanging in the balance, Cade has occupied himself with runs outside the wire to procure supplies necessary to ride out what the Farmer's Almanac predicts will be a long, cold winter. As Cade and his team seize an unforeseen opportunity provided by the plummeting temperatures, he quickly realizes they are in a race against time-and nature's fickle whims. And as they all labor to make the most of this gift horse, little does he know, even as Old Man Winter covers the valley with the first snow of the season, the infamous Mister Murphy is about to hurl a wicked curveball his way. Because like the fabled butterfly effect-a single action from the past is about to set in motion a chain of events that could at once spell doom for Eden as a sanctuary and scatter the entire group into the wind. Come along and see if our tenacious little group will Survive the Zombie Apocalypse for one more precious day.

Allegiance, Book 5 in the Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse series, picks up two days after "A Pound of Flesh: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse" left off. Outbreak - Day 1. Like a fragile house of cards in a hurricane, Presidents, Premiers, entire governments and their ruling bodies disappeared instantly. Some had ensconced themselves in deep underground bunkers or remained holed up in fortified strongholds, but history would tell that most had been swallowed up by the dead - never to be heard from again. Infection rates skyrocketed in the United States' largest cities the first days of the outbreak, as the rapacious dead delivered the Omega virus with emotionless efficiency. During the ensuing days, the rest of the country and the world shared the same fate as Omega spread exponentially from within the mega population centers, pulsing into the countryside, a rotten, shambling diaspora. It had taken 3.7 billion years for man to evolve from a universal common ancestor - to stop dragging his collective knuckles - finally to emerge the dominant species, complete with shiny new iPads, Smartphones, worldwide non-stop air travel, and all manner of high tech war machines. Yet it had taken one microscopic man-made virus only three days to deliver mankind, on its collective knees, to the doorstep of extinction. WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD Outbreak - Day 15. With an estimated ninety-nine percent of the United States' population having already succumbed to the rapidly spreading Omega virus, and countries and cities worldwide teeming with the dead, the struggle to survive the zombie apocalypse continues unabated in the high desert of Colorado. Having just returned from a hastily thrown together secret mission that saw Robert Christian-the self-proclaimed President of his "New America"-snatched from his mountain redoubt and delivered kicking and screaming to the justice awaiting him at Schriever Air Force Base, Cade Grayson, father, husband, and Delta Force operator is horrified to learn that during his absence the base had been compromised, putting his family in harm's way. Its inhabitants still reeling from Pug's act of terror, and recently rocked by an undead outbreak inside the wire, Schriever no longer seems an island of safety surrounded by a sea of dead, but more like a shadowy prison, danger lurking within its walls. So, with the Z-infested cities of Denver and Aurora to the north and a hundred thousand flesh eaters inhabiting Pueblo to the south, and all hope of a cure for Omega dwindling faster than the world's population, Cade uses a mandated two-day stand down to fully weigh out his options. With each passing day, he finds himself warming to Brook's stance that they pull up stakes and put the acres of squat buildings and fenced-in concrete in their rearview mirror for good. With his allegiance walking a tightrope between family and flag, will Cade appease Brook and move the family to Logan Winter's compound outside of Eden, Utah? Or will he lobby her to allow the family to stay at Schriever, so that his Delta Team-still recovering from the recent loss of soft-spoken Sergeant Darwin Maddox and the Unit's longtime commander General Mike Desantos-will not find themselves undermanned and outgunned should another important mission crop up? Or will the talented Mister Murphy-of Murphy's Law fame-throw a monkey wrench into the equation and alter the best laid plans of mice and men?

A wide or profound difference between people. The regions of hell conceived of as a bottomless pit. A catastrophic situation seen as likely to occur. For Cade Grayson-doting father, faithful husband, and patriotic Delta Force operator-the above definitions are much more than mere words following a dictionary heading: They all make up his new reality. Following a successful mission to the nation's former capital, Cade returns to the compound in rural Utah to find his life irrevocably altered. Five days later and still reeling from the catastrophic event that pushed him physically and mentally to the edge of the metaphorical abyss-Cade sets out to fulfill a longstanding promise: escort his daughter, Raven, outside the wire to begin the long process of honing the skills she will need to survive the zombie apocalypse. But things happen while they are away that put the integrity of the compound and the lives of its survivors in jeopardy. After unknown entities make a surprise appearance outside the Eden compound wire, and suspicions arise among the survivors that one of their own may not hold the group's best interests at heart, Cade sets out on a new mission saddled with many more questions than he has answers for. Will Cade find outside the wire all that he is searching for? Will the Eden survivors discover a traitor in their midst while Cade is away? Most importantly: After looking into their own personal abyss, will the denizens of Eden ever be the same? Discover who has what it takes to survive the Zombie Apocalypse ... and who doesn't.
