From back of book: The streets of the city are no longer safe. They are filled with zombies--the living dead, rotting predators driven only by a need to kill...and eat. Some of the living have struggled to survive, but with each passing day their odds grow worse. Others have fled, frantically searching for a place to escape, even briefly, the slaughter around them.
For Lamar Reed and a handful of others, that safe haven is an old Coast Guard ship out at sea, with plenty of water separating them from the grasping hands and tearing teeth of the dead. These desperate survivors are completely isolated, cut off from the dangers of the mainland. But their haven will soon become a deathtrap, and they'll learn that isolation can also mean no escape.
