After killing off 99% of the world's population, the superflu known as Captain Trips has left the survivors to pick up the pieces. But now that the dying are dead, those who remain have begun to separate into the light and dark. Those on the side of light have gone to Boulder, Colorado, where a peaceful society has been formed. Those on the side of dark have followed the beckoning of the Dark Man to Las Vegas, where he rules with a cruel hand. But not all of the citizens of Las Vegas are ban and not all of Boulder is good.
A showdown is coming, true believers, and in the space between light and dark there is a no man's land.
