1:24 a.m. Manhattan, New York. Doctor Adam Riker and his staff
work frantically to save the dying victims of an Interstate
pileup only to discover that death is no longer the final rest.
In a back alley
across town, Duane Rogers and Chuck Longfellow watch from the
shadows as street gangs clash in a deadly battle. New York City
is home to eight million people. An unexplained plague descends
on the city's inhabitants and spreads exponentially, leaving no
safe place for survivors. Overnight, most of its inhabitants
will be dead or walking dead.
No corner of
the Earth is unaffected, and precious little time remains as
civilization and the forces of reason collapse. Death no longer
rests in peace…it rises and walks with evil purpose to destroy
all of mankind.
