Joe McKinney Books Overview

Dead City

Battered by five cataclysmic hurricanes in three weeks, the Texas Gulf Coast and half of the Lone Star State is reeling from the worst devastation in history. Thousands are dead or dying but the worst is only beginning. Amid the wreckage, something unimaginable is happening: a deadly virus has broken out, returning the dead to life with an insatiable hunger for human flesh…
The Nightmare Begins Within hours, the plague has spread all over Texas. San Antonio police officer Eddie Hudson finds his city overrun by a voracious army of the living dead. Along with a small group of survivors, Eddie must fight off the savage horde in a race to save his family…
There’s no place to run. No place to hide. The zombie horde is growing as the virus runs rampant. Eddie knows he has to find a way to destroy these walking horrors…
but he doesn’t know the price he will have to pay…

Apocalypse of the Dead

Two hellish years. That’s how long it’s been since the hurricanes flooded the Gulf Coast, and the dead rose up from the ruins. The cities were quarantined; the infected, contained. Any unlucky survivors were left to fend for themselves. One boatload of refugees manages to make it out alive but one passenger carries the virus. Within weeks, the zombie epidemic spreads across the globe. Now, retired U.S. Marshal Ed Moore must lead a group of strangers to safety, searching for sanctuary from the dead. In the North Dakota Grasslands, bands of survivors converge upon a single outpost. Run by a self appointed preacher of fierce conviction and frightening beliefs it may be humanity’s only hope. But Ed Moore and the others refuse to enter a suicide pact. They’d rather stand and fight in the final battle against the zombies.

Flesh Eaters

They Rise…
Out of the flooded streets of Houston, they emerge from plague ridden waters. Dead. Rotting. Hungry. And as human survivors scramble to their rooftops for safety, the zombie hordes circle like sharks. The ultimate killing machines. They Feed…
Houston is quarantined to halt the spread of the zombie plague. Anyone trying to escape is shot on sight living and dead. Emergency Ops sergeant Eleanor Norton has her work cut out for her. Salvaging boats and gathering explosives, Eleanor and her team struggle to maintain order. But when civilization finally breaks down, the feeding frenzy begins. They Multiply…
Biting, gnawing, feasting but always craving more the flesheaters increase their ranks every hour. With doomsday looming, Eleanor must focus on the people she loves her husband and daughter and a band of other survivors adrift in zombie infested waters. If she can’t bring them into the quarantine zone, they’re all dead meat.


The citizens of San Antonio, Texas are threatened with extermination by a terrifying outbreak of the flu. Quarantined by the military to contain the virus, the city is in a desperate struggle to survive. Inside the quarantine walls, Detective Lily Harris is working burial statistics duty at the Scar, San Antonio’s mass graveyard, when she finds a murder victim hidden amongst the plague dead. But Lily’s investigation into the young woman’s death soon takes a frightening turn as yet another strain of the deadly flu virus surfaces, and now Lily finds herself caught up in a conspiracy orchestrated by a corrupt local government intent on hiding the news from the world and fighting a population threatening to boil over into revolt. As the city erupts in violence, Lily is forced to do the unthinkable. With the clock ticking toward annihilation, Lily must lead her family through the quarantine walls and escape with news that just might save us all.

Dodging Bullets

On the bad side of San Antonio the Mexican Mafia runs things and small time dealers like Peto Hurst do what they’re told. But when Peto decides to get out of the Life, and get rich while he’s at it, he upsets the natural order of things and brings hell down on himself and the girl he did it all for. Between getting busted for dealing, striving to please his wealthy girlfriend, and ducking the gangsters who have begun executing people as they search for their dope and their cash, Peto will be lucky to get out of this with his skin.

Seize the Night

Dark Hunter: an immortal warrior who has traded his soul to Artemis for one moment of vengeance on his enemies. In return, they swear to spend eternity protecting mankind from the daimons and vampires that prey on them. Valerius isn’t a popular Dark Hunter he’s a Roman, which means that the largely Greek Hunters have a major grudge against him and his civilization for superceding them. To make things worse, he’s very conscious of his aristocratic background and breeding. So it serves him right when he runs into Tabitha Devereaux. She’s sassy, sexy, and completely unwilling to take him seriously. Not to mention Tabitha is also the sister in law of Kyrian, a former Dark Hunter and Val’s mortal enemy. What Tabitha does take seriously is hunting and killing vampires and soon she and Val have to grapple with the deadliest of all Daimons one who’s managed to come back from the dead, and one who holds a serious grudge against both of them. To win against evil, Val will have to loosen up, learn to trust, and put everything on the line to protect a man he hates and a woman who drives him nuts.
