From the Publisher
Scott Sigler's Infected shocked readers 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 reader 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
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
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.

Nocturnal. He lives in San Francisco.
Praise for Pandemic: "With its razor-sharp prose and attention to detail, combined with skin-crawling body horror and apocalyptic threat, Pandemic reads like the love child of Michael Crichton and David Cronenberg. I haven''t been this creeped out by a book in a long time."--James S.A. Corey, New York Times bestselling author of Leviathan Wakes "This one''s a killer. In Pandemic , our chance against the apocalypse hangs by a slender thread of hope. Sigler brings serious game with a book that rocks the action while delving deep into character. Highly recommended."--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Extinction Machine "Page-turning, spellinding, horrifying, and thrilling...a pulse-pounding alien disease outbreak-slash-invasion story."--Ramen Naam, author of Nexus Praise for Scott Sigler''s Infected and Contagious: "Fraught with tension... Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets The Hot Zone." --Rocky Mountain News "[An] amped up read...full of pressure-cooker mind games." --Entertainment Weekly “A pulpy masterpiece of action, terror, and suspense.”—James Rollins "Rip-snorting, gun-blasting, autopsy-performing action, complete with explosions and forensic science." --Sacramento News & Review "Nothing short of incredible...continues the work that Robert A. Heinlein left undone, but it''s also a horror novel, a military thriller, a mystery...you''ve never read anything like it." -Bookreporter.com "Gutsy, ambitious, and completely seductive..
