The new thriller from Michael Crichton, one of the most famous
authors in the world, will be the most exciting, anticipated
publication of Christmas 2008. Following on from the bestselling
'Next', Michael Crichton's new novel will repeat the winning
formula established with novels such as 'Jurassic Park': to
identify future trends in science and imagine the most astonishing
-- and terrifying -- possibilities that they hold for Mankind.
Always interesting, often controversial, 'Next and 'State of Fear'
put him straight back in the headlines -- and bestseller charts --
and reaffirmed his position as the thriller master. Nothing less is
expected of the next book from the man who managed to make subjects
such as DNA, nanotechnology and global warming both enormously
popular and hugely exciting.
