The outbreak began in New York. Within days it spread throughout the world. No one is safe from the undead.
As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The press was nationalized, and martial law, curfews and rationing were implemented. It wasn't enough. An evacuation was planned. The inland towns and cities of the United Kingdom were to be evacuated to defensive enclaves being built around the coast and the Scottish Highlands and in the Irish Republic.
For George Tull and the other residents of the Waverly-Price Retirement Home, walking to the coast is not an option. Abandoned by the staff, they wait for rescue. It doesn't come. When George leaves the illusory security of the home and ventures into the nearby village, he finds it deserted. But he is not alone; his unhappy retirement is broken by the undead. George is left with a terrible choice: stay and fight to save the people he loathes or leave and abandon the woman he has come to love.

Entertaining Spin Off of the Living Dead series
I enjoyed listening to this spin off from Tayell's UK based 'Surviving the Evacuation' series. It takes place in a state retirement home in a small village on the English coast. Perhaps the hidden meaning of the story is that we shouldn't subject our elders to such places as they are easily forgotten. But, in a zombie apocalypse its everyone for themselves and while many of the pensioners wait for help, and threaten to complain to their MP, the main character (George Tull) does his best to help his fellow residents survive (although he despises most of them and they are largely ungrateful for his efforts). My only complaint is that it ends too soon. I would love to see Tull pop up later or in the main series.
