I cannot wait to see where Del Toro and Hogan take us next. James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of Bloodline

The wait is over Guillermo del Toro, one of Hollywood's most popular and imaginative storytellers (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy) and Hammett Award-winning thriller writer Chuck Hogan (Prince of Thieves) return with The Fall the second blood-chilling volume in their critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling Strain Trilogy. The Fall picks up where The Strain left off with a vampiric infection spreading like wildfire across America as a small band of heroes struggles to save the dwindling human race from the vampire plague. Horror fiction and dark fantasy fans will be swept up in this epic story that bestselling author Nelson DeMille describes as Bram Stoker meets Stephen King meets Michael Crichton.
