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.

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.
The end of an amazing trilogy. I wish it was longer or maybe that there was another book, because Scott Sigler knows how to write. I've read all three books and they are all amazing reads. I must say I was a bit weirded out to hear a new voice actor reading this novel, but Phil really did a fantastic job! I would (and have) recommend this book to everyone I know! Keep up the great work, Scott and Phil, and thank you for an amazing almost 20 hours of awesomeness!
I work in IT, I love reading, I love Writing and for those daily travels too and fro I love to listen to Audible books too
I enjoyed these books. I liked the characters and voices by the author in first two books. This third is another narrator however Phil Gigante does an excellent job. Well done
Story is good, some twists I enjoyed and disliked but of course all signs of a good book.
