Description

'Gruesome, terrifying, pulse-pounding, and also pretty goddamn funny in places. You need to get on this right away.' Stephen King

'Jurrassic Park screenwriter Koepp's jaunty debut ... it's Michael Crichton with laughs' Financial Times

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.

Now, after decades of festering in a forgotten sub-basement, the specimen has found its way out and is on a lethal feeding frenzy. And 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 . . . before it's too late.

Praise for Cold Storage:

'When the real apocalypse arrives, may it be even half as funny as this' Linwood Barclay

'Pure, unadulterated entertainment' New York Times

'A gripping, fast-paced outbreak thriller' Sci-Fi Now

'A chilling first novel [with] cinematic flair . . . it's scary, and a great deal of fun' Daily Mail

'A novel that reads like one of [Koepp's] movies: occasionally frightening, often humorous and always fast-paced' Mail on Sunday

'The book's strengths include the Stephen King-like way humour is interwoven with horror and Koepp's enthralling conjuring of the fungus, which becomes as vivid as its human co-leads' Sunday Times Culture
