A chilling, gripping thriller with a twist from the New York Times bestselling author

They dropped from the atmosphere like microscopic snow. Billions of seeds, smaller than specks of dust, spiralling down from the heavens. A few survived, and 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, an ex-footballer 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. And which is getting bigger.

And then the voices start.

Scott Sigler is the new voice in new horror - his UK debut is a terrifying, menacing thriller about millions of alien parasites infecting the general population, driving the victims to murder and suicide...and waiting to hatch...

Praise for Infected: Infected Book 1

  • Gripping, pacy and often stomach-churningly violent...Sigler seems to have star potential - Independent

  • 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 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. - Publisher's Weekly - Starred review

  • From where I stand, Sigler is at the top of the tree - Jason Bradbury, BBC, on EarthCore

  • 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 EarthCore

  • 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 EarthCore
