is masterful at grabbing the reader by the throat and refusing to let
go. Just when I thought I knew what abyss he was leading me across, he
knocked the bridge out from under … I think I screamed the whole way
down … INFECTED is a marvel of gonzo, in-your-face, up-to-the-minute

—Lincoln Child, New York Times bestselling author of Deep Storm and Death Match


Perry Dawsey is 6-foot-5, 265 pounds of angry ex-linebacker. He knows
all too well that if he doesn’t control his quick temper, people get
hurt. Through constant focus, he has locked his violent past away in
the deep dungeons of his mind.

The infection changes everything.

Strange microscopic parasites tap into Perry’s bloodstream like tiny
little vampires. They start as bright orange blisters, but soon take
the shape of triangular growths just beneath his skin. The “Triangles,”
as Perry calls them, try to control their host by manipulating hormone
levels and flooding his body with neurotransmitters — imbalances of
which cause paranoia, schizophrenia and excessive aggression. As Perry
begins a desperate battle to cut the Triangles out of his body before
it’s too late, his self-control dissolves into raging, murderous


“Part Stephen King, part Chuck Palahniuk, Infected blends
science fiction and horror into 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

“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, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Bad Moon Rising and Ghost Road Blues

“Horror mavens rejoice! INFECTED is a revelation — a novel that lives
up to its hype. From page one, the story of a mysterious smart-virus
that turns its hosts into deadly drooling drones creeps up on a reader
like the ratchet of a roller coaster climbing toward its inevitable
Sigler brings the folksy character detail of Stephen King, the
conceptual panache of Clive Barker, and the oozing, shuddery
pathologies of a David Cronenberg movie.
Zombies, spies, conspiracies, and gallons of goo make this the fastest read in the west! Highest recommendation!”— Jay Bonansinga, National Bestselling author of SHATTERED, TWISTED, FROZEN, and THE SINKING OF THE EASTLAND

“Sigler has a unique talent for keeping readers on the edge of their
seats; I
absolutely had to know what was going to happen next. Infected is full
of mayhem, action, and gore–and you won’t be able to put it down.”

— Dave Wellington, author of 13 BULLETS and the MONSTER ISLAND trilogy

“Scott Sigler’s Infected is a bucking pulp pony that throws
you this way and that, and just when you think you’ve got your balance,
that ole pony bucks the other way. All in all, one hell of an exhilarating ride, and highly recommended.” —Joe R. Lansdale, World Horror Convention Grand Master and six-time Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Bubba Ho-Tep and Lost Echoes

    @Kamelion13: I have no idea on that one. Arimathea is a male-fronted band, I just ducked most of the vocals before they kicked in for THE STARTER. The bands I’d love to hear cover “Heart of Steel” is Evanesence (just to hear Amy Lee rip it a new one) or In This Moment.

  2. Kamelion13

    Hey Scott, is anybody going to take a crack at covering Heart of Steel? I love the original (by Manowar for the junkies that didn’t recognize the lyrics) but I think it would really rock with an ass-kicking female lead vocal.

    This is awesome news! … well, the posting the link part, not the forgetting the credit part :/
    I really dig the song used for Trench Warfare in the audiobook version of The Rookie! Heading over to iTunes now to support the band!
