O’Niel follows the trail of the dealers, which leads to the man overseeing the colony. Now O’Niel must watch his back at every turn, as those who seek to protect their income begin targeting him.

Outside, other survivors with presumably less money scavenge for the wealthy amidst the zombie population, which is becoming increasingly intelligent and organized. –
