Infected was the book of Sigler’s I most eagerly anticipated infevted when I initially saw the synopses and it is likely the one that most sticks in my mind. Horror books don’t scare me, and neither did this one.

The infection is starting to impact Perry’s concentration, his tolerance, and his ability to control that nasty violent streak of his. Meanwhile Perry Dawsey—a hulking former football star now resigned to life as a cubicle-bound desk jockey—awakens one morning to find several mysterious welts growing on his body.

It was a strange feeling. We are experiencing technical difficulties. It did one better. Infected is a revelation — a novel that lives up to its hype.

Nor are we given any real, strong characters to balance Dawsey out–especially when female characters are on camera. The infection consists of triangular shaped growths on the body. Meanwhile Perry Dawsey — a hulking former football star now resigned to life as a cubicle-bound desk jockey — awakens one morning to find several mysterious welts growing on his body.

The narration is primarily through the perspectives of Perry Dawsey, an ex-football player with an anger problem, and Margaret Montoya, an epidemiologist with the CDC who is investigating a strange disease that turns seemingly normal people into murderers.
