Bryan Cassiday's Cutthroat Express: Zombie Apocalypse depicts an apocalyptic world in which millions of ghouls roam the earth after the former president of the U.S.A. nuked himself, transforming the surroundings into a radioactive nightmare. The survivors and the new president, Mims, residing in an underground bunker, find hope in the message of a stranger who claims the existence of a vaccine against the virus now running unchecked. Is Dr. Wheelhouse a savior or another monster? Reaching him would mean facing thousands of ghouls, not to mention the radioactive field. The Cincinnati Cannibal, a serial killer, Cassavetes, Marta, and Halverson comprise a few of the volunteers on Mims' suicide mission to obtain the vaccine.

In Bryan Cassiday's The Cutthroat Express: Zombie Apocalypse, new dangers are added while maintaining a thread of hope for the characters, even if that hope is a difficult-to-obtain vaccine or pardon from death, which morphs the action into a dose of adrenalin. With the addition of characters like the cannibal, the serial killer, a half-dead man, and a psychotic doctor who plays God with humans in the name of finding the cure, my entire attention remained on the plot, eager to find answers to questions like: Will they kill each other? Will Halverson manage to lead the team to the vaccine? Its dark themes of isolation, death, and survival, combined with its quick pace, fitted the gravity of the situation and the time limit for vaccine recovery beautifully. I could hear a clock ticking above my head as I read.
