Review:

Praise for Michael Crichton:

‘One of the most ingenious, inventive thriller writers around... Another high-concept treat... written in consummate page-turning style’ Observer

‘This is Crichton on top form, preying on our fears about new technology and convincing us that we aren’t half as afraid as we should be’ The Times

‘Mixing cutting-edge science with thrills and spills, this is classic Crichton’ Daily Mirror

‘Crichton masterfully maintains the suspense throughout the fast-paced story ... Prey will invade your nightmares for a long time to come’ Time Out

‘A satirical black-comedy thriller... Crichton writes likes Tom Wolfe on speed... completely brilliant...’ Daily Mail

‘Crichton pulls off a slick thriller at a cracking pace’ Daily Telegraph

‘Exciting ... a master storyteller’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Terrific fun. The pages whip by’ Independent

‘A gripping, impeccably researched thriller’ Evening Standard

From the Back Cover:

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.
