Suspense and Thriller

When the military finally tracks down Campion, the man who escaped the biological testing facility, he is already dead and has released the lethal strain of influenza. Before they know it, the flu has already begun killing people and will not stop till 99.4% of the population on Earth has turned to dust. Violence, destruction and death is everywhere and the martial law has failed to contain this outbreak. Soon, there are only a few survivors who are in need of a leader. Only two take a stand and lead the terrified survivors: Mother Abigail, a 108 year old woman seen as a spiritual leader, and Randall Flagg, an evil person who loves chaos and violence.
