Description

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, who possesses an unexplainable ability to locate the disease's hosts. 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.

Professional reviews

"Scott Sigler's story is contagious--the more you listen, the more you want to hear. Though Sigler's narration isn't as spectacular as his writing, he has a pleasant, logical-sounding voice. In particular, he knows what's coming and can vary his voice accordingly. However, he's not skilled at differentiating characters, and his young-sounding voice stretches credibility when performing the older characters, such as the U.S. president. Like some of Robin Cook's plots, this story is about the attempt to identify and eradicate a disease that attacks humans, turning them into psychopathic killers. Not only are they violent, but the malefactors seem to have superintelligence, anticipating every move to stop them. Along with Sigler, listeners will whisk through this thriller, with anticipation of another of this genre from the author. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
