The Condemned


The Condemned



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. 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 that his best friend might not be entirely dead. 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.
