'Gripping, pacy and often stomach-churningly violent...hard to put down' (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, author of Deep Storm
'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, author of The Judas Strain
'Sigler is the Richard Matheson of the 21st Century...smart and creepy, INFECTED is a flawless thinking-persons thriller. Bravo to a bold new talent!' (Jonathan Maberry, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Bad Moon Rising
'Even hardened genre fans will find themselves whimpering at each new revelation. This terrifying page-turner could be the author's breakout book.'
- Starred review 2008-07-16)
'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
'EarthCore is in-your-face, steel-tipped boot on your throat, speed-metal fiction. Nail-biting suspense and non-stop action breathe life into his debut novel' (Tee Morris, co-author of Podcasting for Dummies
'The Hot Zone
meets "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" as an unidentified "virus" sweeps America. It is as graphically horrid as Palahniuk and as compulsive as Stephen King' (Bookseller
'Why then choose INFECTED over the latest cinematic thrillers? Because it packs more thrills and ingenious ideas into its 339 pages than Hollywood has managed in 100 years...imagine a genetic splice of The Last Boy Scout
, Body Snatchers
and Richard Matheson's Shrinking Man
, and you're on the way to understanding the slack-jawed fun of INFECTED' (SFX
'Gripping, pacy and often stomach-churningly violent...Sigler seems to have star potential' (Guy Adams in The Independent
'Fast-paced and engaging...a compelling read and an exciting story well-told' (Black Static
