The Story : Lowell, a convicted felon who is about to be "frozen," injects himself with an inactive, non-virulent form of a deadly virus. The freezer's computer, believing a real infection is underway, automatically aborts Lowell's incarceration and "unfreezes" several other convicts to whom the virus has spread via the cry-support systems. Lowell, mobilizing these other convicts, takes the warden and several observers hostage. Unknown to Lowell, the freezer's computer has recently been upgraded to assume complete control of security - and is attempting to neutralize the virus by sterilizing the facility and killing everyone inside. Jake, who is one of the hostages, must convince the others that their only hope for survival is to fake death - by entering cryogenic freeze at a level deep enough to fool the computer into thinking they have died. However, at such a deep level of cryofreeze, the trerrifying communal freezer nightmares will also be intensified - and Jake and the others will have to endure hellish hallucinations that can literally kill them with their own fear.

Without the CRU, Winger's brain will deteriorate and he'll die within 18 hours. Winger cannot replace the biochip since a new law, "The Thornton Act," has outlawed the production of new androis and their replacement parts. Since the police force's policy is to phase out androids, he can't reveal the truth to them. Instead, he hires adversary Jake Cardigan to find his assailant and recover his CRU. In his search for Winger's assailant, Jake is continously hampered by news commentator and media demagogue Gerald Rhodes, who is an avid anti-android activist and follower of the late Senator John Thornton. Rhodes is on a crusade, convinced that Thornton was killed by an android in revenge for his anti-android legislation. As he races against time to save Winger's life, Jake discovers that the most likely suspects are innocent while the most unlikely are guilty -- and, Rhodes campaign is different than it appears to be.
