Publisher's Summary

Five ordinary people must pay the price of survival at the end of the world. A mysterious virus suddenly strikes down millions. Three days later, its victims awake with a single purpose: spread the Infection. As the world lurches toward the apocalypse, some of the Infected continue to change, transforming into horrific monsters.
In one American city, a small group struggles to survive. Sarge, a tank commander hardened by years of fighting in Afghanistan. Wendy, a cop still fighting for law and order in a lawless land. Ethan, a teacher searching for his lost family. Todd, a high-school student who sees second chances in the end of the world. Paul, a minister who wonders why God has forsaken his children. And Anne, their mysterious leader, who holds an almost fanatical hatred for the Infected.
Together, they fight their way to a massive refugee camp where thousands have made a stand. There, what's left of the government will ask them to accept a mission that will determine the survival of them all - a dangerous journey back onto the open road and into the very heart of The Infection.


What the Critics Say

"Gripping... DiLouie carefully recreates our society and our military, populates it with people we want to know, then proceeds to bring the horror, devastation, and heroes we require." (Fangoria)

A good one

I was hesitant about this book after reading a previous review "Not for me", but I am very glad I was not put off. I think this is a well written story with an interesting take on the zombie apocalypse. I found getting to know the characters through flash back very comfortable, after all that is how we get to know people. We meet strangers then find out more about them as we spend time with them. The style of Peter Ganim did seem a bit odd at first but I soon got used to it and eventually came to like it - so much so I went straight on to listen to the second book in this series with the same narrator. I disagree with the previous reviewer but then, different people, different tastes. Thank you to the author and narrator - I am glad I used my credit on this book.
