They took the job to escape the world They didn't expect the world to end. Kasker Rampart: a derelict refinery platform moored in the Arctic Ocean. A skeleton crew of fifteen fight boredom and despair as they wait for a relief ship to take them home. But the world beyond their frozen wasteland has gone to hell. Cities lie ravaged by a global pandemic. One by one TV channels die, replaced by silent wavebands. The Rampart crew are marooned. They must survive the long Arctic winter, then make their way home alone. They battle starvation and hypothermia, unaware that the deadly contagion that has devastated the world is heading their way...
Adam was born in the west of England in 1969. He is the son of a priest. 
He studied Theology and Philosophy in London. 
He has worked as a gravedigger, a mortuary attendant, a short order cook in a New York diner, and fixed slot machines in an Atlantic City casino. 
He is currently employed as a cinema projectionist. 
He was also a close neighbour of the notorious British serial killer Fred West.
Review: Outpost is literally the best zombie/virus/outbreak/apocalyptic book I have ever read! The characters are all burdened with the lifestyles they have left behind when taking the job on the oil rig - but all this must be put behind them when they are pushed to their physical and mental limits in this terrifying new world. Adam Baker's writing style is unique and brilliant. I was gripped from the very first page and I'm sure everyone else will be too! 5/5 Stars.
