Scott Sigler is the voice in modern horror – and the INFECTED trilogy is a terrifying, menacing series that will leave you sleepless.

They dropped from the atmosphere like microscopic snow. Billions of seeds, smaller than specks of dust, spiraling down from the heavens. Most didn’t survive the journey.

But not all. And those that made it… began to grow.

Now three people face a race against time. Dew Phillips, an agent with a classified unit of the CIA, and Margaret Montoya, a government biologist, must try to stop a modern plague that drives its victims to insanity, murder and suicide.

And Perry Dawsey, a former athlete in a dead-end job, must race to find a cure for the rash that has appeared on his arm. And his back. And his neck. It’s growing every day.
And then the voices start.

Scott Sigler is the voice in modern horror – and the INFECTED trilogy is a terrifying, menacing series that will leave you sleepless.

Reviews

Gripping, pacy and often stomach-churningly violent...Sigler seems to have star potential
<i>Independent</i>
Sigler is masterful at grabbing the reader by the throat and refusing to let go...INFECTED is a marvel of gonzo, in-your-face, up-to-the-minute terror.
Lincoln Child
Part Stephen King, part Chuck Palahniuk...a pulpy masterpiece of action, terror, and suspense. Three recommendations: don't read it at night, or just after you've eaten a full meal, or if you're weak of heart. You've been warned!
James Rollins
Sigler is the Richard Matheson of the 21st Century...smart and creepy, INFECTED is a flawless thinking-person's thriller. Bravo to a bold new talent!
Jonathan Maberry
'Even hardened genre fans will find themselves whimpering at each new revelation. This terrifying page-turner could be the author's breakout book.'
<i>Publisher's Weekly</i> - Starred review
From where I stand, Sigler is at the top of the tree
Jason Bradbury, BBC, on <i>EarthCore</i>
This novel's got it all: cutting-edge science; a perfectly-realized setting; terror both plausible and profoundly unsettling. EarthCore is more exciting than a thriller has any right to be!
Lincoln Child on <i>EarthCore</i>
Bad things happen to bad people in this book. Then they happen some more. Very. Bad. Things. Things that make you wonder just what sort of childhood the author must have lived through. No way I'm going caving with him anytime soon. Or letting him near knives in my presence.
Evo Terra, host of XM Satellite and FM syndicated radio show 'The Dragon Page' on <i>EarthCore</i>
EarthCore is in-your-face, steel-tipped boot on your throat, speed-metal fiction. Nail-biting suspense and non-stop action breathe life into his debut novel
Tee Morris, co-author of <i>Podcasting for Dummies</i>
The Hot Zone meets "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" as an unidentified "virus" sweeps America. It is as graphically horrid as Palahniuk and as compulsive as Stephen King
<i>Bookseller</i>
Why then choose INFECTED over the latest cinematic thrillers? Because it packs more thrills and ingenious ideas into its 339 pages than Hollywood has managed in 100 years...imagine a genetic splice of The Last Boy Scout, Body Snatchers and Richard Matheson's Shrinking Man, and you're on the way to understanding the slack-jawed fun of INFECTED
<i>SFX</i>
Fast-paced and engaging...a compelling read and an exciting story well-told
<i>Black Static</i>
