When 'Scary' Perry Dawsey, former football star and the only survivor of a mysterious intelligent infection, awakes from a coma he realises that he can still hear the thoughts of other infected hosts and knows that he must hunt them down before the infection can spread. Can Dew Phillips keep him on a tight enough rein to allow his team to catch a live specimen to give epidemiologist Margaret Montoya a chance to find out what the disease is and work on a cure. Meanwhile in the White House, a new President is faced with tough decisions about the actions that need to be taken to prevent a national disaster. The clock is ticking, and the disease is about to change tactics and become contagious ...

Following on from the visceral intimate body horror of Infected, author Scott Sigler ups the ante by a considerable margin in this book, with some real widescreen action on a big scale. I listened to the weekly podcasts available from scottsigler.com thoroughly enjoying the mounting tension leading to a satisfyingly bloody conclusion.

Not grand literature by any means, but an excellent, thrilling and gruesome bit of horror fiction.
