The sequel to the “pick-your-own-path” adventure Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?—the Jacksonville Florida-Times Union hailed, “may just be the best thing to happen to literary zombies since Max Brooks.”
You’ve probably read your fair share of zombie stories. But this time it’s different. In a horrific and hilarious cross-country road trip (or rather, suicide mission), you must overcome obstacles of every kind to save zombified America from utter collapse.
The book begins with you inside your prison cell, waiting to be released. Your name is Jimmy el Camino, and you’re a badass—in fact, you’re a supreme badass. Rambo with style. Snake Plissken with a failing liver. You’ve killed more men than cancer. But more men than the zombie apocalypse? That’s questionable…
Your mission? Drive your heavily armed 1967 el Camino from New York City to San Francisco. Along the way, you’ll encounter Mr. Death’s Undead Circus and Animal Show; you’ll battle zombies gladiator-style; you’ll be forced to help a band of lunatics defending the Alamo. And every step of the way, an army of drivers in armored vehicles is hot on your tail—because there is one man, the mayor of New York, who will stop at nothing to keep this apocalypse of the undead alive.
