Overview
"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 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.

Bestseller Sigler’s conclusion to his Infected trilogy, a terrifying horror thriller, improves on its predecessor, 2008’s Contagious. A brief prologue brings newcomers up to speed: an alien race known as the Creators launched a machine to Earth that sent out probes containing seeds with the capacity to infiltrate human bodies and convert them into violent zombielike creatures. Humanity has managed to destroy most of the probes, but one remains intact at the bottom of Lake Michigan. The aliens depend on “three existing, proven designs”: hatchlings, whose main purpose is to kill; crawlers, which use hive intelligence to infect; and mommies, which turn people into spore-distribution systems. Prospects for survival are slim as the numbers of the infected and the dead ratchet up geometrically. Scientists, led by Dr. Margaret Montoya, struggle to develop an antidote, racing the clock as the news gets more and more bleak. Sigler does almost too good a job in creating an existential threat, and, in keeping with the hit TV series The Walking Dead, he doesn’t hesitate to dispose of key characters. This apocalyptic epic will happily engage World War Z fans. Agent: Byrd Leavell, Waxman Leavell Literary Agency. (Jan.)
