The Andromeda Strain
First published fifty years ago, The Andromeda tribe redefined the sci-fi genre and instantly established Michael Crichton as one of the brightest voices in contemporary literature worldwide.
"I love everything that Michael Crichton writes." – Stephen King
A military spacecraft sent to collect extraterrestrial organisms from the upper atmosphere is thrown out of orbit and falls to Earth. Twelve miles from the crash site, an inexplicable and deadly phenomenon is terrorizing the dwellers of a sleepy desert town in Arizona, leaving only two survivors: an elderly addict and a newborn child.
The US government is forced to mobilize Project Wildfire, a top-secret emergency protocol. Four of the country's top biophysicists are being summoned to a secret underground lab five floors below the desert, equipped with an automatic mechanism for self-destructing atoms in cases of incurable contamination. Under conditions of total failure and extreme urgency, scientists seek to understand and contain the crisis. But the Andromeda variety is different from anything they've ever seen – and what they do not know could not only hurt them, but lead to an unprecedented worldwide catastrophe
