Dying by the truckload from a deadly flu outbreak, the citizens of San Antonio, Texas have been quarantined by the U.S. Military. Inside the city, Detective Lily Harris is working burial statistics duty at the Scar, San Antonio’s mass graveyard, when she finds a brutally murdered young woman hidden among the plague dead.

A Tangled Web…

Lily’s investigation soon takes a dark turn. An even deadlier strain of the virus has emerged, and now she finds herself in the middle of a vicious battle between a corrupt local government, a beleaguered medical institution, and a population threatening to boil over into revolt at the quarantine.

No escape…

As the city erupts in violence, Lily is forced to do the unthinkable. With the clock ticking towards destruction, Lily must lead her family through the city to escape, and bring the truth to the world.

Whispers about Quarantined

“A crisply written police procedural set in the ravaged plague zone of a quarantined metropolis, rich in character and action, often brutal and sometimes touching, Joe McKinney’s latest is the kind of novel that may keep you up late into the night because it’s so hard to put down.” – Bruce Boston, author of The Guardener’s Tale

“McKinney has woven a taut whodunit, then ramped up the suspense and the stakes by spreading it across the backdrop of an apocalyptic plague. But as grisly as the murders and the disease are, the author wisely holds everything together with the powerful passion of a mother’s love for her daughter, thereby making his tale all the more satisfying and memorable.” – Kim Paffenroth, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Dying to Live and Gospel of the Living Dead
