Publisher's Summary

From the acclaimed author of Infected comes an epic and exhilarating story of humanity's secret battle against a horrific enemy.

Across America, a mysterious pathogen transforms ordinary people into raging killers, psychopaths driven by a terrifying, alien agenda. The human race fights back, yet after every battle the disease responds, adapts, using sophisticated strategies and brilliant ruses to fool its pursuers. The only possible explanation: the epidemic is driven not by evolution but by some malevolent intelligence.

Standing against this unimaginable threat is a small group, assembled under the strictest secrecy. Their best weapon is hulking former football star Perry Dawsey, left psychologically shattered by his own struggles with this terrible enemy, who possesses an unexplainable ability to locate the disease's hosts. Violent and unpredictable, Perry is both the nation's best hope and a terrifying liability.

Hardened CIA veteran Dew Phillips must somehow forge a connection with him if they're going to stand a chance against this maddeningly adaptable opponent. Alongside them is Margaret Montoya, a brilliant epidemiologist who fights for a cure even as she reels under the weight of endless horrors.

These three and their team have kept humanity in the game, but that's not good enough anymore, not when the disease turns contagious, triggering a fast countdown to Armageddon. Meanwhile, other enemies join the battle, and a new threat - one that comes from a most unexpected source - may ultimately prove the most dangerous of all.

Catapulting the reader into a world where humanity's life span is measured in hours and the president's finger hovers over the nuclear button, rising star Scott Sigler takes us on a breathtaking, hyper-adrenalized ride filled with terror and jaw-dropping action. Contagious is a truly grand work of suspense, science, and horror from a new master.

    "Discipline"

    Worth reading a dozen times, greatest lesson EVER,"Discipline", I'll give you "Discipline". If you need a reminder of just how good your life is, spend an hour with scary Perry.

    Lover of books with a good plot, strong characters, lots of action, no whiners allowed, and only a small amount of well placed cheese

    "Solid follow up to Infected"

    More creepy aliens and freaky infected humans.

    Really like Dew and Perry, not sure if book 3 will be able to compare with 1 and 2

    "Horrible narration"

    Just because you write the book doesn't mean you should narrate it. A seasoned professional would have made this audiobook great, however the author's nasally voice and lacking performance makes it feel like an amateur sci-fi novel. His attempt at a female voice is cringe worthy. Read the book instead and skip this audiobook

    "A fun follow-up, but falls short of Infected."

    Less cringe-inducing than the previous book, which made it less compelling. Not as good as Infected, more generic, but still a fun read. It answers those lingering questions from book 1, like Does Scott Sigler get better at doing women's voices? (yes), or Is the world safe from the triangles? (clearly not), and What the heck happened to Perry's balls...
