In this exciting debut, Sterling Blake has crafted a compelling new page-turner to match Michael Crichton and Dean R. Koontz for sheer excitement. Pitting cutting-edge science against all unforgettably sinister serial killer, Blake crosses into uncharted territories of suspense. Biochemist Alex Cowell. Doctor Susan Hagerty. Research assistant Kathryn Sheffield. Their commitment to life, their belief in the miracles made possible by medical science, is absolute and unshakable. Running on hope and faith, on the wonders of technology and their own adrenaline, they have declared all-out war against their most hated enemy: death. Now they are on the verge of introducing a powerful new weapon into the battle. Cryonics - the preservation of a body at superlow temperatures for future revival. They are designing an infallible life-insurance policy - a way to cheat death. But the enemy is fighting back with a secret weapon of its own: a man who calls himself George. A computer hacker whose true identity is concealed behind a screen of false documents and credit cards, he believes the righteous fire of God burns within him - urging him to seek out and destroy perversion, dissolution, and sin. He is an agent and an angel of death...a serial killer with a mission: to wipe out those scientists who are grasping at immortality. As cunning as he is cold-blooded, George stalks his prey with brutal efficiency and chilling results. Driven by his warped visions of heaven, tormented by inner voices of hell, he is determined to demonstrate the true meaning of death to the advocates of a godless technology. But as the action, the tension, the frightening reality of Chiller build to an electrifying climax, not only George but Susan, Alex, and Kathryn as well discover that murder is merely a prelude to the ultimate in terror. The publication of Chiller heralds the appearance of a thrilling new voice in fiction.
