First book in the trilogy:

The Common Cold: A Zombie Chronicle first in the Trilogy uses for scopolamineFollowing the New Year celebrations Daniel grudgingly commutes into London to start work in his company’s new offices. His stinking cold doesn’t help his mood any. From the moment he leaves the house, he begins to realise that something is terribly wrong with his fellow commuters, much more than just a hangover from the festivities. The other train passengers are seemingly oblivious to their surroundings: lethargic and lack-lustre, behaving just like zombies in fact. Little does Daniel know how right he is.

With Rob, his American friend and colleague, Daniel rapidly learns how to fight to escape his zombie co-workers and the two battle their way across London to rescue Daniel’s wife, Janet, who is trapped somewhat ridiculously in the local library.

On the way the lads pick up a couple of kids, orphaned after Rob accidentally shoots dead their father.

The motley crew make their way to Daniel and Janet’s house only to find it, along with most of the neighbourhood, blazing merrily. As they no longer have anything left to lose, Daniel and Janet make the brave decision to accompany Rob to America in the hope that things would be better on the other side of the Pond.

Finding Gatwick airport full of crazed infected, the group force their way onto an A380 waiting for take-off clearance to the USA. Little does our band of intrepid fighters know that the virus, or whatever it is, is already on board with terrible consequences.

Additional danger awaits as the plane approaches the US coastline, when the USAF attempt to prevent their entry with deadly force.

By some miracle, the A380 finally lands at Denver Airport, only to find, shockingly, that this has been nuked by the government as a last ditch attempt to contain the violence.

Meanwhile just south of Denver, Rob’s wife, Sandra, has been having her own problems with zombie crazed staff in her local supermarket, a zombiefied neighbour on her couch and a trigger happy bunch of national guardsmen ruining the wallpaper. Not to mention the crazed, murderous toddler in the bedroom.
