“We saved the world once. You’d think that were worth summit.”- Gary
Gary was a hero during the Rising, but has now been reduced to poaching rogue rabids in the woods and bringing them – unharmed – to the GP surgery.
He rails against a world gone mad, where the Living are expected to rub shoulders with ‘rotters.’ At least something good came from his time in the HVF though: his friendship with Jem Walker. But does Gary want more?
The arrival of Pro-Life MP, Maxine Martin, heralds good news for Gary when finally, he finds a politician who talks some sense.
As Maxine increasingly takes Gary into her confidence, giving him more responsibility, he’s dismayed to discover Roarton faces grave danger.
