In THE CARRIER by Holden Scott, Jack Collier dedicates his life to a radical cure of cancer to save his girlfriend–flesh-eating bacteria redesigned to eat tumors. But something goes wrong, turning him into a carrier of disease that consumes its victims in seconds. Great writing, Michael Crichton-quality blend of science and fiction, but a little too neat–e.g., the disease never becomes a plague–leaving me wanting.
Great trailer for Jeff Carlson’s PLAGUE YEAR. His PLAGUE series is hands down one of the best, if not the best, post-apocalyptic trilogy I ever read.
