Publisher Description

A terrifying thriller that will crawl beneath your skin . . . and leave fresh blood on every page.

“Fraught with tension . . . Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets The Hot Zone.”—Rocky Mountain News

Across America a mysterious disease is turning ordinary people into raving, paranoid murderers who inflict brutal horrors on strangers, themselves, and even their own families. 

Working under the government’s shroud of secrecy, CIA operative Dew Phillips crisscrosses the country trying in vain to capture a live victim. With only decomposing corpses for clues, CDC epidemiologist Margaret Montoya races to analyze the science behind this deadly contagion. She discovers that these killers all have one thing in common—they’ve been contaminated by a bioengineered parasite, shaped by a complexity far beyond the limits of known science.

Meanwhile Perry Dawsey—a hulking former football star now resigned to life as a cubicle-bound desk jockey—awakens one morning to find several mysterious welts growing on his body. Soon Perry finds himself acting and thinking strangely, hearing voices . . . he is infected. 

The fate of the human race may well depend on the bloody war Perry must wage with his own body, because the parasites want something from him, something that goes beyond mere murder.

Infected.

Very, very good. It is sci fi written and explained so well that you can actually believe it, everything from the actions of every character to the biology of the infection and its horror.

Good but...

Just too much foul language but that’s just me. I did like that the author really used science in the telling of the story.

Awesome!!

I've never been into scfi-horror and this is my first book in that genre. What a great intro! I couldn't stop reading and now I'm a Siegler fan!
