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.

    Suspenseful. A great followup to the first installment "Infected". Definitely kept me engaged for the entire 14hrs and 55min. Probably will be much more appealing to a young adult audience. Very satisfied.

    absolutely love Scott Sigler! this trilogy is by far one of my favorites ? READ IT

  • Shelly

    OK.....I'm only 3 discs into this book, but I am spending more time rolling my eyes at the "theme" verses laughing at the authors LAUGHABLE reading and terrible "voices" as he reads this book. I am hoping that it gets better as it goes on....maybe just not my cup of tea. I love Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, Dean Koontz, even John Saul (despite his macrabre endings).....

    This was one of the worse books I have rented. The writing is so bad. I kept thinking: WHo talks like that. It did not help that the author read the book as well. It made it worse. I could not even finish the book, that's how bad it was.

  • MikeC

    Lots of interesting characters. Read by the author with his 'over the top' style. Lots of fun.

  • Dano

    A perfect sequel to infected. I enjoyed Infected and enjoyed this book just as much. Leaves you wating for the 3rd installment of this series. If you haven't listed to Infected yet, do that first, then grab this one up, you won't be sorry.
