An epic battle for survival begins between man and vampire in The Strain — the first book in a heart-stopping trilogy from one of Hollywood’s most inventive storytellers and a critically acclaimed thriller writer. Guillermo del Toro, the genius director of the Academy Award-winning Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy, and Hammett Award-winning author Chuck Hogan have joined forces to boldly reinvent the vampire novel.

The New York Times says, "A new crew of vampires is stalking the best-seller list this week.... My bets are on The Strain", while ESPN.com's Ray Carsillo raves, "The Strain is a tremendous, thrilling read. I had to keep putting the book down after every few pages because I was so creeped out by the amazingly descriptive passages. If you can work up the courage to finish the book, you’ll be clamoring for the second and third installment of this trilogy in no time. This story will redefine how you look at vampires.... [A] phenomenal read....The Strain is a must read."

Brilliant, blood-chilling, and unputdownable, The Strain is a nightmare of the first order.
