The United States government is given a warning by the preeminent biophysicists in the country: current sterilization procedures applied to returning space probes may be inadequate to guarantee uncontaminated reentry to the atmosphere.

Two years later, seventeen satellites are sent into the outer fringes of space to “collect organisms and dust for study.” One of them falls to earth, landing in a desolate area of Arizona.

Twelve miles from the landing site, in the town of Piedmont, a shocking discovery is made: the streets are littered with the dead bodies of the town’s inhabitants, as if they dropped dead in their tracks.

The terror has begun.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Science fiction, which once frightened me because it seemed so far-out, now frightens me because it seems so near. The Andromeda Strain is as matter-of-fact as the skull-and-crossbones instructions on a bottle of poison—and just as chillingly effective.”

    Life magazine

  • “He had me convinced it was all really happening.”

    New York Times

  • “Relentlessly suspenseful…a hair-raising experience.”

    Pittsburgh Press

  • “This is horrifyingly immediate and filled with fascinating detail…brought right down to earth by what has appeared recently in the news, an exciting demonstration of the possible impossible.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Terrifying.”

    Library Journal

  • “This story is a tale of men—their attitudes, their shortcomings, and, ultimately, their triumphs. What better instrument to bring to life this group of soldiers and scientists than the gravelly, versatile voice of character actor David Morse? He successfully taps into the novel’s paranoic narrative…With a combination of pacing and intonation, Morse skillfully captures both the scientists’ theoretical precision and the soldiers’ world-weary gruffness…This production remains a thrill ride that will grab listeners.”


  • A New York Times Bestseller in 1969
