Editorial Reviews

GNASH is an action-packed read that’s as scary a nest of black widow spiders taking up residence in your bedroom. You never know when or where your next pants-pissing encounter with the terrifying bastards will show up. And you’re afraid to close your eyes because you just know when you do, you’ll surely be bitten.” ~ The Bookie Monster
“Simply one of the best zombie novels I’ve ever read! It reads as kind of a mashup of Stephen King, Tom Clancy, and just a dash of Dan Brown.” ~ Larry D. Murphy, host of Not Ready for Radio.

From the Author

I wrote GNASH over the course of about 2 1/2 years during a deployment to Iraq and at night after work at the Pentagon.

From the Inside Flap

Brian Parker’s new zombie apocalypse novel GNASH is an exciting, non-stop action story that leaves you wanting for more. The story is set in the present day while we are fighting the War on Terror. As the United States and the West continue to pursue the enemies of freedom, an ancient fundamentalist organization, the Brotherhood of Niyyat, lashes back in an all-out assault.

The Brotherhood coordinates several large-scale attacks to occur nearly simultaneously across the globe in an effort to destabilize the Western governments. The first of these attacks is to wipe out numerous Heads of State at the annual G-8 Summit.The plan works brilliantly as the President of the United States and several other European leaders are assassinated.

The Brotherhood also releases a deadly virus within the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The virus is nearly 100% fatal to all of the employees, but it mutates within their dead bodies and they reanimate into frighteningly sadistic undead.

GNASH takes a dramatic twist as the newly-elevated leaders of the G-8 nations are forced to make decisions that affect whether or not the human species will survive…
