About the Book

‘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
