US writer Scott Sigler has quickly established himself as a notable writer of SF thrillers, not only through the medium of his fast and pacey fiction, but via his canny and unapologetic self-promotion. A visit to his web site is a must and a consummate lesson in how to use the internet to get yourself out there. His new novel is Contagious and is published in paperback original by Hodder.
"When the seeds landed on Chelsea Jewell, they made her seven-year-old body and mind the incubator for the worst plague ever to attack the planet.
Mankind's best hope of defence is Perry Dawsey: host-turned-hunter, bloodthirsty psychotic, and – with his strange new ability – a key member of the black-ops team leading a deadly battle against the mysterious disease that is spreading across America.
Now Dawsey and the rest of the black-ops team are in a desperate race to find and destroy Chelsea and her 'family' – before it's too late."
