The ARES Virus ran rampant throughout the world, leaving very few remaining. There are no sanctuaries in the midst of the infected, where the very air is contaminated. For the few surviving, the slightest misstep can introduce the viral agent into their midst, bringing an end to the last vestige of humankind. However, there's too much at stake to merely hover in the shadows. Remnants of the navy survive the catastrophe, but humankind has never been able to live for long periods upon the world's oceans.

What would happen if a viral agent was released on American soil? How would local agencies react? How would the military respond? What if it was one of their own? Would they own it or attempt to cover it up? If a major operation was jeopardized because of the release, would that alter any of the decisions? A potent viral agent, created to destabilize a region for forces to move in and clean up, is accidentally spilled in a metropolis. Those infected serve only to afflict others through any means.

One of the best well told books I heard and I have listen to a lot. In my top ten and be purchasing next book. Adam did a good job and thank you Shawn telling a story if this could happen how the government would try to hide it until it’s to late. Funny how the CDC and HLS has a plan in place if a Zombie outbreak happens. History of zombies goes back centuries and many different cultures have their own view how they know zombies is a possibility.

In a steel-and-lead-encased bunker 20 feet below the basement level of his house, a soldier waits for his final orders. On the surface, a plague ravages the planet, infecting over 90% of the populace. The bacterium burrows through the brain, destroying all signs of humanity and leaving behind little more than base, prehistoric instincts. The infected turn into hyper-aggressive predators, with an insatiable desire to kill and feed. Someday soon, the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his mission....

Excellent series as who really knows but we know people they will kill for a can of cat food to survive. Can we really trust our government or people who all they want is power hum like Clinton. They will do anything to be a true dictator over the people and to control you. Why is the answer so this book highlights this. Just be ready for the unknown, we are.
