Book Description

Dec 29 2009
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.

Review

Praise for Scott Sigler’s Infected

“An inventive, amped-up yarn . . . full of pressure-cooker mind games.”
Entertainment Weekly

Rocky Mountain News

“Part Stephen King, part Chuck Palahniuk . . . a pulpy masterpiece of action, terror, and suspense.”

“Powerfully written . . . [with] an unforgettable central character. You’ll never listen to Cole Porter’s ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ the same way again.”
Dallas Morning News

“Once begun, not easily put down . . . leaves the reader’s heart still racing when
the last page is turned.”

Same as Infected....Outstanding novel, perfectly written. Can hardly wait for the conclusion "Pandemic" - I feel envious a little to those who have not yet read it..I wish I could do it all again for the first time..Lots of fun

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fast paced read Sept. 17 2009
By Karoline TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Wow. This novel was great! I liked how it provided more background information on the aliens and their hidden agenda towards Earth it gave the story more depth and the story is well rounded out. As in Infected, I also liked how there are scientific terms and theories, but it was easily explained and not complicated to understand. We all know some science fiction novels have a lot of technological jargon and you're left wondering if you're reading an encyclopedia on physics or rocket science. Here, everything is kept at Science 101 which is good, at least the reader is not stuck with having to go back to their college notes. I also liked the idea of the virus being able to evolve and to adapt so no matter how hard the government tries to fight it, it somehow gains the upper hand I thought it was an interesting way of keeping the story going.

The use of Chelsea in the book is very well done. It makes the story more eerie and creepy by using a child - a very beautiful and innocent like girl to become one of the most horrible creatures I've ever read in my life. You also get to see Perry Dawsey evolve from a psychotic raging killer doing down the downward spiral to a more calculated one, but with good intentions thanks to Dew.

There is a lot of action in this novel. It's so fast paced and well done it's almost as if you're watching a movie instead of reading. There are also a few military terms here and there but it shouldn't really bother the reader if they're not familiar with the terminology (same with the science terms). There is a lot of gore and swearing for those that aren't keen with that sort of thing. Other than that, this is a very pleasing sequel, is there room for more? well, I suppose it's up for the reader to decide.

Infected was one of my favourite books of last year, and I found it by accident. I downloaded the PDF just prior to the release and I was hooked - I ordered the hardcover after I had read the first couple of chapters.

So when Contagious was announced I pre-ordered so I could get it as soon as possible after release because I knew it was going to be good. Very good.

I was not disappointed.

Contagious takes up the story a few weeks after Infected ends and throws us headlong into the fray once more. There are some new characters and many of the old team (the ones that survived) are present and correct. If correct means ground down by the continuing battle against the triangles and missing some vital pieces, that is.

The pacing is furious and you will not want to put this book down. The twists and turns are handled skillfully and the storytelling is clear and concise. There are no wasted passages (the chicken scissors have been well-deployed) but the descriptions are vivid and stomach churning.

I particularly liked the developments around the triangles and the science behind them. It was detailed enough to satisfy the science nerds without alienating everyone else.

Summary: Top Class.Contagious

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Continuation Feb. 9 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I picked up Infected and Contagious both at the same time after hearing the author on a morning radio show (Lex and Terry) and was really surprised. They are great horror / fiction novels. Contagious is a bit better I would say as the action is faster paced and has some really funny moments (like when Dawsey nick names that kid "slinky")

Anyways if you like sci-fi / horror kinds of fiction novels this one will not disapoint.
