It is a week since the outbreak began in New York. The president has been betrayed. The vice-president is dead. The conspirators are close to victory.
Having narrowly escaped agents of the cabal, Tom Clemens heads to Washington in the hope of warning the president, but it is too late. The highways are impassable, filled with millions fleeing from the cities. As refugees storm the towns, and zombies fill the smoking ruins, survivors become more deadly a threat than the impossibly living dead. Still hopeful he can find the cause of the outbreak and so end it, Tom fights his way through an undead America, unaware that the cabal are searching for him.
From Surviving the Evacuation, this is the second part of Sholto's escape from a collapsing United States.
