The undisputed master of the high-concept thriller has written his
most gripping and entertaining book yet In Paris, a physicist dies
after performing a laboratory experiment for a beautiful visitor.
In the jungles of Malaysia, a mysterious buyer purchases deadly
cavitation technology, built to his specifications. In Vancouver, a
small research submarine is leased for use in the waters of New
Guinea. And in Tokyo, an intelligence agent tries to understand
what it all means. Thus begins Michael Crichton's exciting and
provocative techno-thriller State of Fear. Only Crichton's unique
ability to blend scientific fact with pulse-pounding fiction could
bring such disparate elements to a heart-stopping conclusion. This
is Crichton's most wide-ranging thriller. State of Fear takes the
reader from the glaciers of Iceland to the volcanoes of Antarctica,
from the Arizona desert to the deadly jungles of the Solomon
Islands, from the streets of Paris to the beaches of Los Angeles.
The novel races forward on a roller-coaster thrill ride, all the
while keeping the brain in high gear. Gripping and
thought-provoking, State of Fear is Michael Crichton at his best.
