A Neal Porter Book
Una plataforma petrolera medio abandonada y en ruinas, atracada en un remoto lugar del océano Ártico, está a punto de ser cerrada. Una tripulación reducida aguarda la nave que los llevará a casa.
Pero el mundo más allá de este gélido páramo ya no es el que recuerdan. Un siniestro virus se propaga por el planeta a toda velocidad. En cuestión de días, se ven asoladas ciudades enteras. Los contagiados, irreconocibles, se convierten en una horda rabiosa y casi indestructible.
Uno por uno los canales de televisión y radio que unen la tripulación a lo que queda de la civilización humana dejan de retransmitir.
El silencio invade las ondas. La incomunicaciónes total. Y el largo invierno en el Ártico solo acaba de empezar.
Atrapados en los confines de la tierra, quince hombres y mujeres se enfrentan al panorama desolador del hambre y la hipotermia, inconscientes aún de que la plaga apocalíptica que ha devastado al resto del planeta viene directo hacia ellos.

After liberating the sole surviving Guard member from US capture, the team makes their way to the ancient ruins where the convoy was last seen. Although all seems eerily quiet and deserted when they arrive, they soon find themselves caught in a desperate battle for their lives, confronted by greed, betrayal, and an army that won't stay dead.
