When Mike Beem’s community is savagely attacked, he must exact revenge on those who wronged him. He must put aside all the good he has ever accomplished in order to become someone else.

Fred climbed into the passenger seat, and when he looked out the window he saw two zombies shambling towards him. He pulled up his gun, and gripped the door handle, ready to step out of the vehicle with his gun blazing.
Two quick shots rang out, and as Fred watched, the skulls on each zombie exploded, showering the truck in blood and chunks of rotten brain matter.
Fred opened the door, gun drawn, and when he stepped outside he saw Double walking towards him. “What’re you doing down here?” He asked.
“Getting you out of a jam, thank you very much,” she replied.
“I appreciate it, but I had it handled.”
“You sure about that?”
He grunted, hating to admit she was right. “Since you’re here. Would you mind checking out Guard Tower 1 and 2? I’ll check out 3 and 4.”
“Okay. I’ll make my way on over.”
“Hey, Double, right?”
“Thanks. You saved my ass.”
“Anytime,” she replied, and ran off towards Guard Tower 1, shooting at several zombies lurking nearby.
Fred watched the undead creature’s heads explode, and then made his way towards Guard Tower 3.
