The world is on the brink of apocolalypse. Zero Day has come.
The only thing more terrifying than millions of flesh-eating spiders is the realization that those spiders work as one. But in the US government, there is disent: kill all of the spiders, or gamble on one professor's theory that we need only kill the queens?
For President Stephanie Pilgrim, there is only one answer. She's gone as far as she can- more than two dozen American cities have been hit with tactical nukes, the country torn asunder - and their only chance is to believe in Professor Guyer.
Unfortunately, Ben Broussard and the military men who follow him don't agree, and Pilgrim, Guyer, and the loyal members of government have to flee, leaving themwith the question: what is more dangerous, the spiders or ourselves?
