What has come before.
While investigating what they anticipated to be a routine homicide, Detectives Johan Stemmy and Anthony Heron discovered that their world had been invaded by zombies. Stemmy was bitten and subsequently died from the infection.
A week later, while being evaluated for cancer treatment, Heron was forced into action when the ER was besieged by zombies and forced into lockdown. The incident sparked the authorities into action. Heron was named chief of the Zombie Task force and he chose Francis Culph as his second in command. Culph was a brash young officer whose personal life was far more checkered than his professional life. While fighting zombies exhilarated him, the job poured venom into his soul. He brought that venom home and doled it out on his girlfriend. Afraid for her safety, she left him.
Shawn Rudd, a high school senior, had discovered the first zombie and been arrested for destroying it and murdering its bite victim. Heron had been able to get Shawn released from jail under questionable circumstances. He had made Shawn promise to investigate and report anything that included both teenagers and zombies. Though Shawn had made the promise, his boyfriend, a twenty three year old man named Marcus, was suspicious of the deal.
