The devastating Michaluk Virus is loose.
In the heart of Atlanta, Georgia, the virus has escaped the CDC and transformed most of the population of the southeastern United States into homicidal cannibals. As society rapidly crumbles under the hordes of infected, three people—Ethan Bennett, a Memphis police officer; Cade Alton, his best friend and former IDF sharpshooter; and Brandt Evans, a lieutenant in the US Marines—band together against the oncoming crush of death and terror sweeping across the world.
As Cade, Brandt, and Ethan hole up in a safe house in Tupelo, others begin to join them in their bid for survival. When an attack of the infected forces them to flee, one rushes to Memphis in search of answers while the others escape south to Biloxi, where they encounter more danger than they bargained for. And in Memphis, the answers that one man finds are the last answers he wanted—answers that herald a horrific possibility that there may be more to this virus than first suspected.
