The Strain (Strain Trilogy #1)by Guillermo Del Toro
Synopses & Reviews
At New York's JFK Airport, an arriving Boeing 777 taxiing along a runway suddenly stops dead. All the shades have been drawn, all communication channels have mysteriously gone quiet. Dr. Eph Goodweather, head of a CDC rapid-response team investigating biological threats, boards the darkened plane, and what he finds makes his blood run cold.
A terrifying contagion has come to the unsuspecting city, an unstoppable plague that will spread like all-consuming wildfire: lethal, merciless, hungry...vampiric. And in a pawnshop in Spanish Harlem, an aged Holocaust survivor knows that the war he has been dreading his entire life is finally here.
In one week, Manhattan will be gone. In one month, the country. In two months...the world.
"He elevated gothic horror to art....Bilingual, bicultural, multigenre, he has a voice that feels both fresh and ancient." Entertainment Weekly
"[One of] the most original and powerful filmmakers working today." The Hollywood Reporter
