The dead are rising. As America falls, Jack and several other survivors are rescued by Army patrol and taken by ship to a remote island off Indonesia where, under the leadership of the Colonel, they'll try to rebuild the human race.
That effort involves dangerous military forays, including an assault on an oil tanker infested with the dead, to have a generation's worth of fuel for the island; and a long train journey up the Asian continent to rescue a group of humans holed up in a women's prison.
Part military novel, part adventure story, part horror tale, As Dead As Me follows a group of desperate men and women who try to be strong enough, organized enough, and brave enough, to take back the world. If they don't succeed, mankind is extinct.
