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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed up chapters??? This book would have been great as I love Scott Sigler's writing.....But the chapters were all mixed up, this could not have been done on purpose, the end of the book is in the middle. You're reading the big climax, reading about characters that you've never heard of and then BOOM the climax is over, then move on to the build up of who the characters are why they did what they did. It honestly ruined the book and felt more like the chapters were downloaded in the incorrect order. It makes no sense to have chapters about characters that you "should" know about and don't, then introduce their back story after the book is essentially over... I really feel this book's chapters were downloaded in the wrong order. After I realized what was happening with chapter's order I stopped reading as i now knew how it all ended anyway....Not impressed...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Contagious Another great story by Mr. Sigler. I found it interesting how he mixed the chapters up so the end of the book is at the start and the start and middle you get to read last. So if you buy you might want to just browse through until you get chapters in right order
