Jake Chestnut and partner Gary Landon are partners in Seraglio, a small company hired by local governments and businesses to exterminate zooks. These hardened men and women have been on the front line of a virtual war for five years, killing monsters who were once people. There is no end in sight. The bite delivered plague struck five years ago and has killed about a third of humanity. Zooks are victims of Metamorphic Plague, a fatal disease that causes victims to behave like rabid apes who move so quickly that a normal person can't track them by eye. Entire cities have been devastated, and nobody knows which way the fight to survive will go. Jake must discover why the consortium that just hired Seraglio to clear the zooks from Margolin Hills Resort Community (MHRC), the first in a series of plague-safe enclaves for the very wealthy is suddenly trying to kill him. What he discovers may lead to civil war. ..".in Zook Country Bill Swears has created a memorable world where the good guys aren't just fighting against a never-ending tide of blood thirsty zooks, they are also up against a complex and corrupt corporate structure that at its core is far more evil than the infected humans." Don Rearden, author of the award-winning novel The Raven's Gift ..".if you like your action fast, your narrator laconic and your stories addictive then Zook Country is the book for you." N. M. Browne, author of Wolf Blood.
