Scott Sigler's Infected shocked listeners with a visceral, up-close account of physical metamorphosis and one man's desperate fight for sanity and survival, as "Scary" Perry Dawsey suffered the impact of an alien pathogen's early attempts at mass extinction. In the sequel Contagious, Sigler pulled back the camera and let the listener experience the frantic national response to this growing cataclysm.
And now in Pandemic, the entire human race balances on the razor's edge of annihilation, beset by an enemy that turns our own bodies against us, that changes normal people into psychopaths or transforms them into nightmares.
To some, Doctor Margaret Montoya is a hero-a brilliant scientist who saved the human race from an alien intelligence determined to exterminate all of humanity. To others, she's a monster - a mass murderer single-handedly responsible for the worst atrocity ever to take place on American soil.
All Margaret knows is that she's broken. The blood of a million deaths is on her hands. Guilt and nightmares have turned her into a shut-in, too mired in self-hatred even to salvage her marriage, let alone be the warrior she once was.
But she is about to be called into action again. Because before the murderous intelligence was destroyed, it launched one last payload - a soda can-sized container filled with deadly microorganisms that make humans feed upon their own kind.
That harmless-looking container has languished a thousand feet below the surface of Lake Michigan, undisturbed and impotent...until now.
Part Cthulhu epic, part zombie apocalypse and part blockbuster alien-invasion tale, Pandemic completes the Infected trilogy and sets a new high-water mark in the world of horror fiction.

Pandemic is well written and kept me hooked from start to finish.
The narrator has become my favorite. His monster voices were creepy (COOOOOPER!)
Get it. You will not regret it.
I might because it's a good story, and I would for sure if the narration gets fixed.
Yes, however it was very distracting for the town names to be mispronounced. Manitou is pronounced "man-ih-TOE" not "man-ih-TOO".
Scott Sigler is awesome! If you've not read one of his books do it now!
Read 1&2 then Ancestor. Then read pandemic. It's a different story. But a Great tie in to pandemic. I wish I did. It would have been way cooler. All his books are awesome.
Has language. So don't listen to this book with little ones.
Shallow characters. Missing suspense masked by movie-like violence. Boring too...had to stop listening after half the book.
I really enjoyed all three books in this trilogy. I do like this sort of end of the world disaster anyway. Wasn't to sure about the narration in the first couple of books but I got used to it (Authors should not narrate there own books, Leave it to the experts). Narration in the last book was excellent. Very well paced and written. Enjoy!!
"Superb conclusion to the trilogy."
Infected, Contagious, Pandemic.......Have enjoyed this trilogy a lot, was really made for Audio. Have listened to others by this Author too which were also great. Can be pretty Gory at times, but its a gory subject and is Horror / Sci Fi. Very memorable Characters and great story.
