Summary
A pandemic has devastated the planet, sorting humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Through the provisional government in Buffalo, the military has eliminated the most dangerous of the infected and teams of civilian volunteers clear out the catatonic "stragglers." On a team sweeping lower Manhattan, Mark Spitz endures Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder in a fallen world. And then things start to go wrong . .
Summary
In a post-apocalyptic world decimated by zombies, the U.S. government has retreated to Buffalo, New York, and survivor efforts to rebuild are focused on lower Manhattan. With several others, Mark Spitz works as a "sweeper" -- eliminating zombie stragglers as he struggles with PASD (Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder) and recalls humanity before the apocalypse. -- Description by Dawn Towery
