Publisher's Summary

Quite simply, what could go wrong did go wrong. Given the choice between assuming leadership of a situation that is pure chaos, where the National Guard is forced into a position of going to war against a trapped and possibly infected citizenry, the President chooses to punt. He knows what enforcing a quarantined zone will require: the massacre of tens of thousands of terrified people demanding to get out, and there is no way he's going to have his name and legacy sullied. Suddenly a states' rights champion, he leaves the situation under the control of the Governor of New York, but not before hampering the men on the lines with rules of engagement that are meant to sooth journalists instead of creating a possibility of victory.
Tasked with the impossible, General Collins, commander of the 42nd Infantry Division is in a meeting with the Governor when the perimeter of the quarantine zone is ruptured. When his command post is overrun he's grinding his teeth, sitting in front of the President as he smiles for the cameras, makes jokes and demands answers. And in the dead of night when 100,000 infected persons slug it out toe-to-toe with the fractured remains of his division, he is the only reinforcement available to shoulder a rifle.
Inside the Zone, the survivors of Day One are dying by the score as Dr. Lee and her friends, hopelessly fight their way from one end of the Zone to the other, desperate to escape. But there is no way out except through death at the ripping teeth of the undead. Striving to put that horrible moment off for as long as possible, she finds herself trapped alongside Anna Holloway and Lieutenant - they are three scorpions in a bottle...a bottle surrounded by countless undead.

Horrible

I could not even finish this book. I know that this is make-believe and fiction but could you please leave out killing little kids. I draw the line in books and movies when it comes to killing kids. this book is also horrible because it has too much politics. the storyline was horrible because it did not get into how the people prepared themselves. she just breezes right by that said no people just went into their homes and barricaded their homes and stuff but when it came to politics she went deep into detail of how the mayor failed and what the mayor was thinking nobody cares about that. she should have spent less time on the politics and more time on the storyline of how the people survived or try to survive. this book is a huge thumbs down in a very bad disappointment. don't waste your time or your money on it.

Dumbest smart people alive.

Ok, I know what the author is trying to convey with his characters but at some point common sense and logic have to come into play. Now you have two characters in this story that have on multiple occasions tried to kill the main characters. When do stop giving the benefit of the doubt and handle the problem. That's completely unbelievable, and yes I know this is a work of fiction, but reading the same thing happening to the same people by the same people is getting old. I'd like for the main characters to actually wise up and be as smart as they are portrayed to be.
