Mutation by Nerys Wheatley

When a violent mob invades cop Alex MacCallum's part of town, it's just a typical night for him and the others living there. As survivors of the virus that turns its victims into mindless flesh-eaters, they expect to be feared and despised.

But the next day, when a new strain of the virus begins turning the population into eaters faster than ever before, Alex is forced into an alliance with Micah, the leader of the mob, just to stay alive.

Can the two enemies survive the hordes of eaters, as well as each other, long enough to find a way to stop this new outbreak?

"Wow! I love zombie stories. I read the worst and the best and keep coming back for more, but this book blew everything away. The ideas and concepts are new and intriguing, the characters are smart and likable and the writing is great. The story feels like something that could almost happen. I seldom write reviews, but I have to tell everyone how amazing this story is." – Amazon reviewer
