The monsters are zombies. The island is Manhattan, which is kind of like a giant roach motel: the zombies check in, but they don't check out...that is, unless they are shot through the brain, decapitated, or otherwise have brain functions terminated.

I read Frostbite - the first of David Wellington's werewolf trilogy - and really liked it. I did not enjoy this one nearly as much.
