A story of friendship, Armageddon and a dog called Fool... Steve Harris. An ordinary man with an ordinary job in an ordinary life, until one day, in the blink of an eye everything in his world changes. Steve works as a security officer for a pharmaceutical company. He also takes part in company medical trials to make extra cash. He is placed in a cryogenic pod as part of an experiment but when he wakes, a year has passed and he is alone. While asleep, a deadly virus that had been stored at the same facility has been unintentionally released by a paramilitary animal rights group. Which has wiped out 99.9% of the human race. Steve, who is now joined by the Labrador he finds living in the local pub (who he christens Fool), decides to try and make his way to the Greek island of Skiathos. On his travels Steve happens across a rather flamboyant character encamped in an Austrian ski lodge named Eddie Kelsall who reluctantly decides to join with Steve and Fool on their journey. This is the story of Steve, Eddie and Fool's journey from a small market town to a sunny Greek island and the dangers and challenges they face as they go from country to country making new friends and enemies along the way.
