Maxim Jakubowski's view...

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. Often dismissed as a mere craftsman of adventure stories, he was much more: a great populariser of science, a unique storyteller and one of the last unputdownables. Early in his career, before the doors of Hollywood opened to him, he wrote 8 superlative thrillers as John Lange and they have finally all been reissued as a handsome set of paperbacks under his name. All were gripping adventures, many set in exotic locales, brimming with suspense and larger than life characters on both sides of the eternal axis of good and evil. Entertainment at its best. Other titles are Grave Descend, Scratch One, Easy Go, Zero Cook, The Venom Business, Odds On and Drug of Choice.

Synopsis

Binary by Michael Crichton, John Lange

Political radical John Wright is plotting an act of mass destruction - and federal agent John Graves has him under surveillance. When a government computer is hacked and a high-security shipment of nerve gas gets hijacked, Graves puts the pieces together - but can he stop Wright from unleashing his weapon and killing a million people...including the U.S President?

Reviews

'...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

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 books...and then vanished. Now Hard Case Crime is proud to bring all of John Lange's work back into print for the first time in decades - and under Crichton's real name.
