This is another post apocalypse novel. A handful of people escape a zombie like infection by hijacking a nearly completed air craft carrier.
The story centers around Patrick Redmayne, a self proclaimed coward. He was a geek working in the defense industry prior to the release of whatever doomsday weapon escaped from some unknown nation's arsenal. A lack of self esteem characterizes his behavior and his relationship with his fellow refugees who he perceives as stronger and more capable then he sees himself.
The story focuses on a scavenging mission that goes awry.
The cast of characters includes a power hungry petty despot, weird creatures and cruel peers.
