Review:

."..it is a taut thriller that moves straightforwardly, and contains a confrontational puzzle at its center...what makes Binary so interesting is... the way the story resonates with today." - Irresistible Targets"Great delight to Crichton fans who are still mourning his 2008 passing." --Geek Girl Project

"I will always be eternally grateful to Crichton and his novel of Jurassic Park as it was the one book that motivated my then teenage son to move away from computer games and other modern temptations and begin reading in earnest... a great populariser of science, a unique storyteller and one of the last unputdownables... Entertainment at its best. Other titles are Grave Descend, Scratch One, Easy Go, Zero Cook, The Venom Business, Odds On and Drug of Choice." --Lovereading.co.uk

"A daring plot to launch a devastating bio-terror attack on the U.S. is the engine that drives this pulse-pounder Crichton wrote in 1972 under the John Lange pseudonym...The efforts to forestall disaster are appropriately suspenseful, and fans of post-9/11 thrillers will find a welcome alternative in the author's treatment of a familiar storyline set in the recent past." ----Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

Long before Jurassic Park, Twister, and ER, Michael Crichton was an honors student at Harvard Medical School and writing paperback suspense novels on the side, under the pen name John Lange. Lange wrote eight booksand then vanished. Now Hard Case Crime is proud to bring all of John Langes work back into print for the first time in decades and under Crichtons real name.
