A terrible pile-up on a deserted West Texas highway. A massive dust-storm cutting off communications and obscuring visibility. A father, his estranged son, and a small band of survivors marooned, waiting for help, unaware of the things that are out in the dust, waiting, watching, drawn by the scent of blood.

Island Red by Matt Serafini

It's a species that has been around for 80 million years. It has over 300 teeth in 25 rows to trap its prey. It has very rarely been found in depths above 160 feet, meaning the frilled shark has never posed a threat to humans. Until now. The residents of Crystal Key, Florida didn’t think there was anything to worry about. A missing girl with a troubled past was easy to dismiss, but that was only the beginning. When fishermen disappear and two girls are attacked on open water, everyone assumes the culprit is a predator stalking their piece of the Atlantic. But as an offseason hurricane descends, and communications with the mainland are severed, Crystal Key is about to discover that terror doesn’t only come from below.


Hold your breath. Until it’s time to scream.

Death among the Dead: A Zombie Novel (Star Drawn Saga Book 1)by Stephen Charlick 

The world is dead; it took its last breath over five years ago and those that remained will tell you its passing was certainly far from peaceful. The snapping jaws and bloody hands of death ripped life from humanity's grasp, leaving nothing in its wake but savage corpses burning with an un-natural compulsion to feast upon the living. Those left alive simply called them the Dead and no matter who you once were or what you once did, no one could escape their touch for long. But Man was stubborn, Man was persistent and Man refused to give up. He found a way to exist in this world of death and as survivors gathered together, small pockets of humanity began to rebuild and mold their lives as they saw fit. And so it was that three such survivors, Fran, Kai and Tom found themselves crossing the English country side bound for the island of Saint Michael's mount; hopeful to not only meet up with their separated friends but perhaps daring to wonder if they too could find themselves a home.
Joined on the way by another small family, touched by their own deadly tragedy, Fran, Kai and Tom soon realize leaving the mainland and the Dead behind them will not be as easy as they hoped. For the Dead will not be denied their bloody penance and as ghosts of the past, both tolerated and unexpected come into play, death soon breaches the island's defenses; bringing with it a new and equally terrifying madness for the inhabitants of St Michael's Mount to bear

At the Midway by J. Clayton Rogers

In 1906 a detachment from the U.S. Signal Corps is attacked by three Tu-nel. The Tu-nel are descended from the therapsids, mammal-like reptiles that evolved in the Triassic Period--before the dinosaurs. They co-existed with the dinosaurs of the Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods. During the 135 million years of their existence, they have undergone major evolutionary changes. These helped them survive the mass extinctions of the dinosaurs and, much later, the giant mammals

The scene shifts to Hampton Roads, Virginia. Teddy Roosevelt is launching his Atlantic Fleet on a world cruise. It is an audacious enterprise, mainly because of the political tensions between the United States and Japan. The oldest ship in the Fleet is the Florida, commanded by Captain Oates. His vessel is constantly in the "Observation Ward" because of poor performance, a position that does not improve after the Fleet sets sail for South America. It is his ship that will ultimately confront the Tu-nel off Midway Island.

book Description reminds me of the old black and white SCi fi movies from the 50s and 60s
