Sucked into another dimension by a Shelby GT 500 KR, Driver 5 finds himself in the middle of a cornfield that should have been a city. A black-clad girl is running for her life from a nightmare on foot. There's thousands of zombies. She directs him to the base, the underground complex housing thousands of people. It's there that he finds himself the only hope of not only these people but the entire world.
At the end of World War II, Hitler pulled off a sneak attack that we didn't see coming. Thousands of A-bombs fell across the West, causing everything west of the Mississippi River to fall into the ocean. Japan was swallowed into the sea, as was most of China. But that wasn't the worst of the Nazi treachery. They released a chemical agent that turned the rest of the population of the United States into zombielike creatures. Unlike the zombies in the movies, they do not kill for food - they just kill.
In the base, they fit Driver 5 with a suit that employs nanotechnology, making his synapses and muscles fire at a superhuman rate. It's also hardwired to his brain. The car is upgraded and responds only to his suit. Navigation and ammo specially made to kill only dead flesh are uploaded to the computers and the ammo pack on the suit back, respectively. They give him the tools, a nanotech enhanced suit, and slight modifications to his car to drive from Indianapolis to Detroit. He doesn't have a chance in hell.
The girl becomes his navigator and will call him only Driver 5 because of the short life spans of the drivers. They had a machine that went into other dimensions to recruit drivers, and only one has even come close. And he is someone they do not want to see up close. Half human, half demon, he hunts drivers to protect his master, Hitler, in Briggs (Tigers) stadium in Detroit.
Ride with Driver 5 as he battles his way through zombies and meets new friends along the way to the ultimate goal.

Zombies, demon Hitler, and nanotech!
I did not read the print version. I have only listened to the audio version.
The battle at the end with Driver 77 attempting to smash through Driver 5's car. Very visual.
He was able to provide consistent various voices for the various characters.
I like it because it was an adventure that we all wish we could go on while we are at work daydreaming. You just want to be swept into a new situation and be given the chance to do something extreme and heroic.
