Summary

Shortlisted for the CWA Steel Dagger Award for Best Thriller of the Year.

They thought it was contained. They were wrong.

After decades underground in a forgotten sub-basement, a highly mutative organism – capable of extinction-level destruction – has found its way out. Only Pentagon bioterror operative Roberto Diaz can stop it. With the help of two unwitting security guards, he has one night to quarantine this horror, before it destroys all of humanity.

Critic reviews

"To be simultaneously terrifying and hilarious is a masterstroke few writers can pull off, but Koepp manages in this incredible fiction debut that calls to mind a beautiful hybrid of Michael Crichton and Carl Hiassen. Cold Storage is sheer thrillery goodness, and riotously entertaining." (Blake Crouch, New York Times best-selling author of Dark Matter)

"A thrilling, funny, and unexpectedly moving joy ride." (Scott Smith, New York Times best-selling author) 

"You might as well put your plans on ice for the next twenty-four hours, as all you’ll be doing is reading this book.  The very definition of ‘thriller,’ David Koepp’s Cold Storage grabs you and shakes you and ultimately leaves you grinning." (Scott Frank, Academy Award-nominated writer of Logan and Out of Sight)

Very good

Enjoyed listening, narration was good. Surprised this has no reviews, a good plot, well written. I will be looking to the author for more books. Sorry not great at reviewing books! I took a chance on a non reviewed book, and enjoyed it, and found a new author to boot.

A movie script sold as a book.

Not a great plot but entertaining enough, maybe the movie will be better. Some gore and violence with bunch of adults no one would care because they are not nice people or people you would enjoy as company.

Start as you mean to go on!

What a first book! Brilliant story, entertaining characters with humours dialogue. There are a few edits in the reading which sound different but not enough to take you out of the emersion. Looking forward to reading the next title!

I purchased this audiobook after seeing a FB advert (so they do work!). Great story and great narration. If you like thrillers / end of the world scenarios then you will love this!

Good yarn

Flawed and fallible, delightfully human characters, and a sticky situation they must try to overcome. I liked it, recommended. Good narration. The science horror element May not have been totally correct, but it was creative, entertaining and got my suspension of disbelief with a smile and a wave.
