What has come before…
The Zombie Containment Facility is a place where people who’ve lost loved ones to the zombie plague can go and claim their family members. If the victim is in their database, the facility will handle all of the funeral arrangements and provide closure for distraught family.
For a fee.
At the heart of the company is a CEO with much to hide and an executive who will do her part no matter what the moral implications. When John Arrick escaped the facility, alive, he became a danger to the company and the freedom of those executives. So Albert Chatham hired Francis Culph, the zombie hunter, to find and kill him.
Having returned to New York, Lance Naughton was quickly reinstated as a police officer and given leave to investigate his suspicions. The leads and conclusions quickly piled up. Denise Luco, who went to Atlanta to continue her work fighting the zombie plague, found some startling information in Rudolph Ludlow’s notes. There was a zombie whose system had completely assimilated the bacterium. The man was not a zombie.
This man was John Arrick.
Laying in a strange bed and staring at a strange ceiling, Malcolm Arrick considered the events that had led him to this point. Eliminating the circumstances that had brought him to the United States in the first place, he supposed he had been fortunate. He had managed to find a place to live, had turned up several good leads on the whereabouts of his brother, and scored a lady friend.
