The Condemned

David Jack Bell

Delirium Books

The world is at war.the city is dying.and those left for dead within its walls 
have awakened.

A terrorist attack on the water supply has left the city quarantined by the 
army and inhabited by the City People, the mindless living dead who rule the 
urban night. Jett Dormer works for the government. During the day he and his 
partner Vince drive a wrecker, collecting abandoned cars from the city's dying 
core, scrap metal to feed the nation's raging war machine. They finish their 
work before nightfall and return to home base outside the city and then to 
their wives and families. Until the day Jett and Vince are overrun by a horde 
of City People, and only Jett makes it out.

Plagued by nightmares and wracked with guilt for having left his best friend 
behind, Jett returns to work, hoping to provide for his family. But his new 
partner, a wounded veteran known only as the Kid, won't let Jett forget what 
happened to Vince. And he won't let Jett forget that Vince might not be 
entirely dead.

You're never going to feel right, or be right, as long as he's out there.

Soon Jett and the Kid are on a mission to find Vince and bring whatever's left 
of him home. But as their city raids grow bloodier, Jett finds himself 
increasingly under the mysterious influence of his new partner. And just as his 
murderous rage for the City People grows nearly out of control, he realizes 
things may not be exactly as they appear. The night, and those who control 
it-the City People-hold many secrets. Secrets that might just set Jett free.or 
destroy him and everything he holds dear.
