Cold Storage (Paperback): David Koepp Cold Storage (Paperback)
David Koepp 2
R388 R250 Discovery Miles 2 500 Save R138 (36%) In stock

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?

Acclaimed reviews:
“[Koepp] writes well, he has a wicked sense of humor and his characters are so keenly, intelligently and even movingly drawn. . . . On every level, Cold Storage is pure, unadulterated entertainment.” (Douglas Preston, The New York Times Book Review)

“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)

Two roads lead to Mount Hope. None leads out. There’s no place to run in a community that’s been taken–and is being intentionally kept–off the grid.

A small southern town was evacuated after a freak power-plant accident. As the first anniversary of the mishap approaches, some residents are allowed to return past the national guard roadblocks. Mount Hope natives Maggie and Jordan quickly discover that their hometown is not as it was before. Downed cellular networks fail to resume service. Animals savagely attack humans. And the damaged power plant, where Jordan’s father is an engineer, is under military lockdown.

As friends and family morph into terrifying strangers, Maggie and Jordan increasingly turn to each other. Their determination to discover who–or what–has taken control of Mount Hope soon has them in the cross-hairs of a presence more sinister than any they could have imagined.

They call Verity 'the app-whisperer,' and she's just been hired by a shadowy start-up to evaluate a pair-of-glasses-cum-digital-assistant called Eunice. Only Eunice has other ideas.

Pretty soon, Verity knows that Eunice is smarter than anyone she's ever met, conceals some serious capabilities and is profoundly paranoid - which is just as well since suddenly some bad people are after Verity.

Meanwhile, in a post-apocalyptic London a century from now, PR fixer Wilf Netherton is tasked by all-seeing policewoman Ainsley Lowbeer with interfering in the alternative past in which Verity and Eunice exist. It appears something nasty is about to happen there - and fixing it will require not only Eunice's unique human-AI skillset but also a little help from the future.

A future which Verity soon fears may never be . . .
