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. He contained it and buried it in cold storage deep beneath a little-used military repository. Now, after decades of festering in a forgotten sub-basement, the specimen has found its way out and is on a lethal feeding frenzy. Only Diaz knows how to stop it.

4 1/2 star read. I started this book yesterday and finished it this morning. It was one of those books. Koepp writes a very fast paced and intriguing horror/thriller that made for a compulsive read. Roberto Diaz, a Pentagon Bioterror operative was sent to a remote place in Australia to look into a possible bio weapon and he found something 100% lethal to all humans, animals, and ultimately everything on Earth. He and his team brought a sample back after eradicating the threat, and this sample was stored in the depths of a cave to keep it from ever getting out again. But many years later, the Government sold off the cave and a self storage unit company has taken it over. Two young security guards are working the night shift and they hear a beeping alarm go off. They trace it back and discover a hidden panel of alarms protecting something. Roberto is called out of retirement and sent to neutralize the threat and he enlists the two guards to help him. These three are the only way to save humanity. Told with a good sense of humour and great dialogue, I really enjoyed this book and hope Koepp is busy writing another book.

This is not at all what I was expecting, but it still turned out to be relatively entertaining. I have a soft spot for medical or bio-thrillers like Jurassic Park. From the description - the monster a fungus from space - I had expected something along the lines of The Andromeda Strain. Instead what I got was more like Ghostbusters, a sort of faux horror vibe. This is a totally farcical satire with no attempt at being believable, nor is it scary. The characters are all wacky and do wacky things as they try to avoid getting eaten by the fungus and maybe even save the world in the process. It's not all that funny, but you can pass a few hours with it.

A New & Noteworthy pick. A sci-fi pandemic debut novel by David Koepp, who wrote the screenplay for "Jurassic Park." Author Blake Crouch calls it “a beautiful hybrid of Michael Crichton and Carl Hiaasen,” and that sounds like quite a combination. Movie rights already sold.

Good fast fun. Read it in a day. Reads like an early (great) Stephen King story.
