Description


In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles--micro-robots--has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.

It has been programmed as a predator. It is evolving swiftly, becoming more deadly with each passing hour.

Every attempt to destroy it has failed.

And we are the prey.

About the Author


Michael Crichton (1942 2008) was a writer and filmmaker best known as the author of Jurassic Park and the creator of the TV series ER. Crichton sold more than 200 million books, becoming one of the most popular writers in the world. His novels have been translated into thirty-eight languages, and thirteen have been made into films. While studying at Harvard Medical School, Crichton wrote novels under the pseudonyms John Lange, Jeffery Hudson, and Michael Douglas (with brother Douglas Crichton). He published ten books under these names, including A Case of Need, which won the Edgar Award for Best Mystery in 1969. In contrast to the carefully researched techno-thrillers that ultimately brought him to fame, the Lange and Hudson books are high-octane novels of suspense and action. Written with remarkable speed and gusto, these novels provided Crichton with both the means to graduate at the top of his class and the freedom to remain anonymous in case his writing career ended before he obtained his medical degree.
