Were not much into the quintessential page-turner too many exhaustive strands of unimaginative dialogue and predictable cliffhanging endings to chapters but Scott Sigler, acclaimed horror-story author of such reads as Infected, just cranked one out. Titled Contagious, its filled with creepy characters and a super-crayzee plot structure in which peoples life spans are measured in mere hours. Plus, the book has been called a marvel of gonzo, in-your-face, up-to-the-minute terror.
