”The most clever and riveting vampire novel since Dracula.” – Dean Koontz

Robert Neville is the last living man on earth... but he is not alone. Every other man, woman and child on the planet has become a vampire, and they are all hungry for Neville's blood.

How long can one man survive like this?
