For Cade Grayson, husband, father, and former Delta Force operator, that one warm sunny Saturday in July - to be labeled Z-Day by some anonymous person probably long dead - began like all the others before and none since.
With his daughter, Raven, and wife, Brook, away visiting her parents in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Cade hopes his immediate future holds nothing but an easy chair, Mariners on the tube, and paring down a honey-do list a mile long. But those hopes were quickly dashed and his life forever changed when news broke of a clash in downtown Portland between soldiers from the Oregon National Guard and hundreds of anarchist protesters suddenly turned violent and, by one anchor's account, blood-thirsty and cannibalistic.
As the first waves of injured bystanders, guardsmen, and rioters arrived at hospitals, it became apparent that a deadly new disease had been unleashed on the population. Whether the virus was naturally occurring or an escaped lab experiment, Cade hadn't a clue and wasn't especially concerned until he learned of its unprecedented virulence, unusual method of transference, and the fact that, according to the news, it brought the newly dead back to life, semi-mindless, and with an insatiable desire to feed on the flesh of the living.
Armed with this new information and now seeing the bigger cities such as Washington, D.C., New York, and Los Angeles rocked by the rapidly spreading scourge, Cade ignores the volley of contradictory edicts drawn up by the White House and set into motion by FEMA and DHS, dusts off his tools of war, and loads his truck with supplies.
Unable to get ahold of Brook and Raven, and unwilling to leave them at the mercy of some distant politician's inability to hold the nation together, he begins an impossible 3,000-mile journey across a reeling United States with presumably millions of infected in his path and only one acceptable outcome: find Brook and Raven alive - or die trying.

Couldn't get into the story
No sure, don't want to waste more money
I love Zombie books, I couldn't put down Mark Tufo's or John O'Brians booked, but I couldn't get into this one.
sorry but i hated it....
Before I continue let me add that I love the zombie genre, books, films TV series, even the crappy ones.... I don't know how many books I have read but its in the dozens... long winded doccu types like z nation, and belt along "arisen" and "mountain man" series...I am really easy going .. but this was just. well, boring and nasty, boring because it felt as if it had been written with the help of a couple of books for reference.. and nasty in as much as you expect to have a bunch of zombies chomping on people, but c'mon..' what have you got against pre 7yr olds, the glee with which you slaughter 4 to 7 year olds left me feeling REALLY uncomfortable, what was the ratio.... 15 to 1 adult per page?? I have a policy, if someone can take the time to pen a novel then I will take the time to finish it... but not this time, 30 or 40 pages was more than enough....
Not the best but considering what he had to work with....
Enough said already
Couldn't find the option to return this book, probably went to far in hoping it would improve
