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 Hiaasen. Cold Storage is sheer thrillery goodness, and riotously entertaining.--Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter
"A thrilling, funny, and unexpectedly moving joy ride."--Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author of A Simple Plan and The Ruins
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
"An ultra-flammable combination of science-based horror, primal nightmare-level terror, and unrelenting action, cunningly tied together by indelible characters and a satisfyingly sly, knowing sense of humor."--Steven Soderbergh, Academy Award-winning director of Traffic and Ocean's Eleven
"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
"[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
"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
"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
