Publisher's Summary

Scott Sigler's Infected shocked listeners with a visceral, up-close account of physical metamorphosis and one man's desperate fight for sanity and survival, as "Scary" Perry Dawsey suffered the impact of an alien pathogen's early attempts at mass extinction. In the sequel Contagious, Sigler pulled back the camera and let the listener experience the frantic national response to this growing cataclysm.
And now in Pandemic, the entire human race balances on the razor's edge of annihilation, beset by an enemy that turns our own bodies against us, that changes normal people into psychopaths or transforms them into nightmares.
To some, Doctor Margaret Montoya is a hero-a brilliant scientist who saved the human race from an alien intelligence determined to exterminate all of humanity. To others, she's a monster - a mass murderer single-handedly responsible for the worst atrocity ever to take place on American soil.
All Margaret knows is that she's broken. The blood of a million deaths is on her hands. Guilt and nightmares have turned her into a shut-in, too mired in self-hatred even to salvage her marriage, let alone be the warrior she once was.
But she is about to be called into action again. Because before the murderous intelligence was destroyed, it launched one last payload - a soda can-sized container filled with deadly microorganisms that make humans feed upon their own kind.
That harmless-looking container has languished a thousand feet below the surface of Lake Michigan, undisturbed and impotent...until now.
Part Cthulhu epic, part zombie apocalypse and part blockbuster alien-invasion tale, Pandemic completes the Infected trilogy and sets a new high-water mark in the world of horror fiction.

SPANK MY A SS AND CALL ME SALLY
All books by Scott Sigler are entertaining. This is my fifth, I have yet to be disappointed. This third book in the trilogy was written five years after the first two. The first two were written before the Zombie craze and have no Zombies. This book has sort of Zombies and is a lot better than book 1 and 2, of which both, were good. Reading book one and two is not necessary to enjoying this book.

THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO CHANGE
The Infected, remember their pasts when they were human. Some are very smart, some are strong, some are fast and none are rotting. They do eat humans. This is closer to Invasion of The Body Snatchers than a zombie thriller. Sigler must not like the Midwest, as he nuked Detroit in the last book and destroyed Chicago in this one. This book has science and explains how and why, more than other books of this type. It also has a little character development and some nasty twists and some gory stuff.

buckle your seatbelt!

Scott Sigler’s first two books in the Infection trilogy mix action, blood and gore , and “Pandemic” is no different. Non-stop action with gory details put you in the middle of the action right from the start. Not for the faint of heart, this book will have you floored from cover to cover.

I'll admit I'm not a big Phil Gigante fan. Every time he does a woman's voice they all sound the same and I just don't think he does that good a job with the non-dialog stuff. That said his voices are pretty good and the production value is pretty good, but I'd much rather the author read this book like he did with the first two.
