New reviews for Walking Dead

Walking Dead

Positive reactions are already coming in for Walking Dead, the new Atticus Kodiak novel due in stores on April 28.

From Publisher’s Weekly:

In Rucka’s adrenaline-filled seventh novel to feature ex-bodyguard Atticus Kodika (after Patriot Acts), Atticus and his ex-assassin lover, Alena Cizkova, are living under assumed names in the remote town of Kobuleti in the Republic of Georgia. When the family of their next-door neighbor, Bakhar Lagidze, is slaughtered and Bakhar’s 14-year-old daughter, Tiasa, is kidnapped, Atticus vows to do anything to get her back. After discovering Tiasa was sold to pay off her father’s debt, Atticus reluctantly immerses himself in the seedy world of human trafficking, which takes him across Eastern Europe to Nevada, with stops in Dubai and Amsterdam along the way. When the men he’s chasing target Alena for retribution, she too goes on the run, with help from an unlikely source: hard-nosed New York PI—and Atticus’s ex-lover—Bridgett Logan, last seen in Critical Space. Series fans who have come to expect a nonstop thrill ride with a topical angle won’t be disappointed.

And from David Pitt at Booklist:

The evolution of Atticus Kodiak continues. In the beginning (Keeper, for example, from 1996), Atticus was a professional bodyguard, a man who knew how to use his intellect and physical strength to maximum advantage. But, by Patriot Acts (2007), Atticus was a fugitive, running from people who wanted to see him dead. Now he’s hiding in a small town in Georgia, the former Soviet country, living with Alena Cizkova, the former professional assassin and the love of his life. When a neighbour’s family is horribly murdered and their 14-year-old daughter abducted, Atticus risks his own life and his relationship with Alena to find the girl. Like Jack Bauer in the hit TV series 24, Atticus has almost completed the transition from protector to vigilante. As we watch him edge ever closer to the moral line that divides heroes from villains, we worry that his inner turmoil will tear him apart. And that may be the clearest sign that Rucka has created a classic character: we are emotionally invested in Atticus and his fate. A fine installment in a terrific series.
