Over the icy Siberian wastes something falls from the sky. Soon decapitated villages, soldiers and oil workers litter the snow. The Russian authorities are baffled, but deep within the Pentagon in Washington, USA, data from secret satellites proves the Predators are back!
A crack team of experts is sent to Siberia to bring back the crashed alien spaceship that brought the Predators to Earth, along with its unique technology. Press-ganged into accompanying then is Detective Schaefer of the NYPD — the only man on earth with first hand knowledge of the Predators. He is about to face his second close encounter with the scourge of the universe...
When a Predator ship crashes in a frozen Russian wasteland, NYPD detective Schaefer reluctantly follows his orders to investigate, but upon his arrival a feisty Russian female warrior challenges him to a deadly battle to claim the ship and its technology.
- Predator: Cold War would be the last Predator novel to be published in the United Kingdom by Millennium; the final Predator book from Bantam, Predator: Big Game, was never released in the UK. In fact, subsequent novels published by DH Press were likewise never officially released in the UK, meaning Britain would not see another Predator novel until Titan Books published Predator: Incursion in 2015, a gap of some 18 years.
