Stay and hide. Run and fight. Either way you risk it all.
In the scant few weeks since an explosion decimated New York City, sixteen-year-old Jesse has lived through the unimaginable. Only two types of people are left: Chasers, infected with a virus that turns them into bloodthirsty killing machines. . .and those they hunt. Jesse isn't waiting to be a victim. There's a collective of survivors in the city. Once he's located them, they can find some way out of Manhattan and Jesse can get help for those he's guiltily leaving behind.
But first, there are the obstacles. Crazed Chasers. Dangerous power struggles. And so-called allies hiding the terrifying truth. . .
