The Andromeda Strain

By
Published by Vintage on 2017-01-24
Paperback: $15.95
FICTION / Science Fiction, FICTION / Thrillers, FICTION / Technological


In this bestselling classic, four scientists race to prevent a biochemical disaster after a space probe landing goes awry.

A military space probe, sent to collect extraterrestrial organisms from the upper atmosphere, is knocked out of orbit and falls to Earth. Twelve miles from the crash site, an inexplicable and deadly phenomenon terrorizes the residents of a sleepy desert town in Arizona, leaving only two survivors: an elderly addict and a newborn infant. The United States government is forced to mobilize Project Wildfire, a top-secret emergency response protocol. Four of the nation’s most elite biophysicists are summoned to a clandestine underground laboratory located five stories beneath the desert and fitted with an automated atomic self-destruction mechanism for cases of irremediable contamination. Under conditions of total news blackout and the utmost urgency, the scientists race to understand and contain the crisis. But the Andromeda Strain proves different from anything they’ve ever seen—and what they don’t know could not only hurt them, but lead to unprecedented worldwide catastrophe.

PRAISE FOR MICHAEL CRICHTON AND THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN 'The Andromeda Strain invented a new genre, the technothriller. . . . [Crichton] could make most readers lose sleep all night and call in sick the next day.' ? San Francisco Chronicle '[Crichton is] one of the great storytellers of our age.' 'Newsday 'Science fiction, which once frightened because it seemed so farout, now frightens because it seems so near. The Andromeda Strain is as matteroffact as the skullandcrossbones instructions on a bottle of poison? and just as chillingly effective.' ? Life '[An] intelligent pageturner.' ? The Washington Post Book World '[Crichton] is a master at blending edgeofthechair adventure with a scientific seminar, educating his readers as he entertains them.' ? St. Louis PostDispatch 'Relentlessly suspenseful. . . . A hairraising experience.' ? The Pittsburgh Press

'Filled with guttightening tension.' ? San Antonio ExpressNews 'The Andromeda Strain, a terrifying novel of biophysics, will leave you thinking Crichton was a visionary. Thirty years before researchers discovered the effects of microorganisms, Crichton predicted a virus just as deadly. . . . This one haunts you for years.' ? The Huffington Post
