APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The Boy on the Bridge emerges from the same cunningly complex fictional universe as the fierce and brilliant The Girl with All the Gifts, but it doesn’t assume prior knowledge. The twisting plot, the intriguing, quirky cast and the knife-edge tension are just as satisfying for newbie readers as for dedicated M. R. Carey fans. Sure, there are plenty of zombies—but this is so much more than a book about the undead. It’s rich with character development, philosophical musing, scientific speculation and, most critically, suspense.
