The Zombie Chronicles 4: Emergence
Nick is alone, a situation with no one to blame for but himself. Six years ago his father had left him and his sister, vowing to return to them…and he never had. But Bill had returned; remote and sullen at losing his best friend, Bill made little effort to raise his best friend's son, isolating himself with his new job: Being a soldier. When Nick found himself in trouble, he had no one to turn to.
