The mystery virus struck down millions. Three days later, its victims awoke with a single violent purpose: spread the Infection. As the world lurched toward the apocalypse, some of the Infected continued to change, transforming into horrific monsters.

America’s far-flung military has returned home to wage a horrific war against its own country, engaged in a fierce battle to retake Washington, DC. Two hundred miles away, Ray Young, survivor of a fight to save a refugee camp from hordes of Infected fleeing the burning ruins of Pittsburgh, awakes from a coma to learn he has also survived Infection.

But this is no miracle. Ray is not immune. Instead, he has been transformed into a superweapon that could end the world … or save it.

In THE KILLING FLOOR, Craig DiLouie’s chilling apocalyptic vision portrayed in THE INFECTION continues, presenting a nightmarish struggle for survival like no other.
