From the Publisher
Annotation Acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro (PAN'S LABYRINTH) took a break from filmmaking to co-author this novel with mystery writer Chuck Hogan. The first in a planned trilogy, THE STRAIN takes del Toro's normal milieu of horror and adds a procedural, almost clinical twist. A jet has landed at JFK, with most of its passengers dead from a mysterious cause, and CDC star Dr. Ephraim Goodweather is called to the scene to investigate. His findings reveal that it's not an airborne disease or biological weapon at fault; instead vampires have brought their ancient thirst to America's most populous city, where there are buckets of blood and numerous souls to turn. THE STRAIN's breed of vampires isn't the typical Bram Stoker brand, and the legends and folklore have been supplanted by epidemiology and biology to chilling effect.
First Line "Once upon a time," said Abraham Setrakian's grandmother, "there was a giant."
Editors Note A Boeing 777 arrives at JFK and is on its way across the tarmac, when it suddenly stops dead. All window shades are pulled down. All lights are out. All communication channels have gone quiet. Crews on the ground are lost for answers, but an alert goes out to the CDC. Dr. Eph Goodweather, head of their Canary project, a rapid-response team that investigates biological threats, gets the call and boards the plane. What he finds makes his blood run cold. In a pawnshop in Spanish Harlem, a former professor and survivor of the Holocaust named Abraham Setrakian knows something is happening. And he knows the time has come, that a war is brewing . . . So begins a battle of mammoth proportions as the vampiric virus that has infected New York begins to spill out into the streets. Eph, who is joined by Setrakian and a motley crew of fighters, must now find a way to stop the contagion and save his city—a city that includes his wife and son—before it is too late.
