The astonishing debut novel by the screenwriter of blockbuster movies such as Jurassic Park; Mission Impossible; War Of The Worlds and Spider-Man. Cold Storage is a wild and terrifying adventure about three strangers who must work together to contain a highly contagious, deadly organism.
When Pentagon bioterror operative Roberto Diaz was sent to investigate a suspected biochemical attack, he found something far worse: a highly mutative organism capable of extinction-level destruction. He contained it and buried it in cold storage deep beneath a little-used military repository. Now, after decades of festering in a forgotten sub-basement, the specimen has found its way out and is on a lethal feeding frenzy. Only Diaz knows how to stop it.
He races across the country to help two unwitting security guards -one an ex-con, the other a single mother. Over one harrowing night, the unlikely trio must figure out how to quarantine this horror again. All they have is luck, fearlessness, and a mordant sense of humour. Will that be enough to save all of humanity?
“Engaging. . . . Koepp recognizes that this is all pretty zany and imbues the novel with a mordant sense of humor, which gives Cold Storage a welcome vibrancy and lightness.” (USA Today)
“The story line in Cold Storage invokes classic horror films. . . . It’s scary, and a great deal of fun.” (Associated Press)
“[Koepp] delivers a story worthy of Michael Crichton.” (Entertainment Weekly)
“It has all the hallmarks of a thriller destined for Hollywood.” (Polygon)
“A thriller of breakneck speed, Cold Storage will be an engaging read that fans of Blake Crouch’s Dark Matter could devour in one sitting.” (Ars Technica)
“Chilling. . . . Propulsive. . . . Koepp is skilled at sharp, often humorous dialogue. . . . [A] taut, mordant thriller debut.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))
“A terrific thriller: ambitious, audacious, gory, scary, flamboyant, and funny....[Koepp makes] a seamless, massively effective transition from the visual medium to the literary. The book doesn’t read like a modestly beefed-up pitch for a movie; it’s a rich, textured, and downright impossible-to-put-down story.” (Booklist (starred review))
“A sensational SF thriller. . . . Breakneck pacing and nonstop action. . . . Michael Crichton fans won’t want to miss this one.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Cold Storage is The Andromeda Strain on crack: chilling end-of-the-world terror infected with wicked humor. Koepp pulls it off with style. When the real apocalypse arrives, may it be even half as funny as this.” (Linwood Barclay, New York Times bestselling author of A Noise Downstairs)
