In a delightful blend of speculative science in the vein of Michael Crichton and cheesy horror à la Hunter Shea, Cold Storage by David Koepp follows two unlikely heroes as they come face to face with a deadly, adaptive organism whose danger has been all but forgotten.
I adored this story! I don’t want to give away what the organism really is, but it made my day. There was enough scientific plausibility to make this a frightening read, but it was tempered by the interactions of Teacake and Naomi, our two unwitting protagonists. They are both working at the storage complex the night the sensors in Sub-Basement Four are triggered. Attempting to locate the source of the alarm and following it down bring them face to face with the deadly organism. The pair, along with military specialist Roberto Diaz, have their work cut out for them in containing and neutralizing the threat. I really loved how Teacake changed and grew into himself over the course of this single traumatic night, and I was glad Roberto was able to in turn give Teacake a better future. Highly recommended!
