The fourth, and last, book in The Dead Series.
With hundreds of miles to travel across a land teeming with the living dead, Steve and his group must first find a way out of the Happy Hallow Insane Asylum.
Thwarted at every turn by the thousands of reanimated corpses that surround them, they try numerous ways to lure the dead away, but they all fail.
Relying on everyone's expertise, the group finally escapes in a hail of bullets and improvised explosives, to be met with new difficulties as they run into more of the dead. But these are not the only lethal things they must face.
In a world where the dead challenge the living for control of the earth, the living can be much more deadly than the walking corpses that now populate it.
Brigands and gangs travel across the United States, seeking only to rob, rape and murder anyone that crosses their path.
With the near collapse of the government, they group must rely on themselves to carry the last hope for a cure across a ravaged landscape.
