FLIGHT 194 LANDED.

SOMETHING LETHAL AWAITS OUTSIDE.

THIS IS DEAD ON ARRIVAL.

An airplane touches down at a desolate airport in a remote Colorado ski town. Shortly after landing, Dr. Lyle Martin, a world-class infectious disease specialist, is brusquely awakened to shocking news: Everyone not on the plane appears to be dead. The world has gone dark. While they were in the air, a lethal new kind of virus surfaced, threatening mankind's survival, and now Martin—one of the most sought-after virologists on the planet until his career took a precipitous slide—is at the center of the investigation.

Moving at lightning pace from the snowbound Rockies to the secret campus of Google X, where unlimited budgets may be producing wonders beyond our capacity to control, Dead on Arrival is a brilliantly imaginative, intricately plotted thriller that draws on Matt Richtel's years of science and technology reporting for the New York Times, and establishes him as one of the premier thriller writers working today.

Genre: Thriller

Praise for this book

"Dead on Arrival joins the ranks of classic paranoid thrillers about human achievement run amok, with Stephen King's The Stand and Michael Crichton's Terminal Man. It's hard to imagine a novel more timely." - Joseph Finder

"Michael Crichton meets Stephen King at their finest: Topical and timely, with the creepiest opening chapters I've ever read, Dead on Arrival, Matt Richtel's gripping and ominous new thriller, explores our fears about technology -- and proves they might be even more justified than we think." - Lisa Gardner

"A high wire act of pure, exhilirating storytelling. From a stunner of an opening to an end I never saw coming, here is a book that will keep you glued to your seat and furiously turning pages. Grab a copy and prepare to lose a day." - James Rollins
