Part two of the series picks up immediately after the end of the first. David's wife, Laura, is forced to take over the protection of their family as the boat travels out into Hailey Bay, away from the zombies. However, the boat's pilot plans to dock back in the overrun city to rescue his own family, which will put Laura, Kim, and Annie in jeopardy. Laura is forced to overcome unimaginable horrors as the zombie apocalypse explodes around her, but it is the evil intent of humans that present her greatest challenge. The reader is taken far beyond the edge of their seat as Laura pushes forward to the inevitable end. No one is safe in a world where the dead hunt the living.

SOMETIMES I LISTEN TO A BOOK AND WANT TO REACH IN AND RESCUE THE UNFORTUNATE SOULS WHO I KNOW ARE GOING TO BE VICTIMS. IN THIS BOOK I GRIPPED THE EDGE OF MY SEAT AND HELD MY BREATH IN HOPES THE VICTIMS ARE RESCUED AND SAVED BUT THIS IS NOT A HEARTFELT ROMANCE OR FAIRYTALE.....THIS IS THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE AND EVERYONE ALIVE BECOMES A VICTIM IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.....SOME BY SHARKS, ZOMBIES, OR HUMANS. RELENTLESS AND SCARY AS HELL. BUCKLE-UP LISTENERS BECAUSE THIS RIDE DOES NOT STOP ANYTIME SOON.
"Getting even better"
After getting away by the skin of their teeth, Billy wants to go _back_ into the city to rescue his mom. I don't know why people always think in zombie books that everyone is dead, except just their particular loved one who has stayed put waiting to be rescued.
But its all a rather believable story, there is a reason why there's not too many zombies about, and the conspiracy plot begins to thicken. Little by little things are revealed; the cops don't seem to be who they are, and whats this about a cure?
This story is mostly about Laura, fighting for her life and kids, and boy does she take a beating here. Laura's character starts to develop now, no longer the naive civilized wife, she not only needs to be smart to survive, but also brutal. Its all rather exciting. And gross.
Great series that will hold you captive. Does not always turn out well for the group - just like in life. Plot gets a little convoluted, but it is a zombie story!
"love all the deadlocks books and audio"
I listen to the deadlocked 2 while I'm at workI listen to it at least three times it was really amazing and intense
when Billy drove his boat under the bridge and then the bombing it was so intense
when the mom would do anything for her kids to live that is truly amazing
deadlock 3 4 5 6 7 I hope it goes to 89 10 I listen to all
I rather enjoyed the first book of this series, that's why I can't understand why this good disappointed me so much...I couldn't even finish the story.
I think it was the dialog or maybe it's because the main character was female and the author doesn't seem to write women as well. Either way, I had to give it.
"Deadlocked 2 picks up, without missing beat"
Like I said earlier Deadlocked 2 picks up, without missing beat, immediately after the first book but from David's wife Laura's perspective. The zombie apocalypse continues to allow the crazy's to come out of the wood work, not sure how they manage but they do. Now it is up to Laura to keep the family together. She's powered by adrenaline, grief, Oxycontin and the fundamental instinct to protect her children. Wise believes that women characters are, more often that not, not portrayed as real women probably would be in these situations. I find it very refreshing when a strong willed stand alone female protagonists hit my ear, there should be more. I will be listening to the next chapter, I just can't help myself.

"what a dirge"
NO there are so many in this genre that are much better written than this one. in the end this book and I know it's fiction but even on the a fiction level this is totally unbelievable tripe :(
The end and it was a battle getting there.
characters not believable at all and incredibly stupid.
What a disappointment! The dialog was atrocious and nonsensical. The female lead seems challenged. I expected better. Her dialog appears to be that of a grammar school child. No one thinks or talks in the manner given to her. I will not buy a third installment.
Only from this author/series
The female lead.
Poorly written. Does not compare to the first volume.
"Who picked these narrators!"
This fact I read the series before. So I know they are all great!
The mom was a very strong women. I liked that.
The narrator lacked emotion the same with the first.
When she hit the guy with the bat that they saved because he wanted to take billie's boat and her trip to the pharmacy to save her daughter.
I just wish they all had the same narrator. Loved the narrator in 3. He did the Remaining too. Loved him
