Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The #1 Bestseller by the author of Jurassic Park. As he did in Rising Sun, Crichton focuses on a topic as close as today's newspaper headlines: sexual harassment.

Tom Sanders is an up-and-coming executive at the computer firm DigiCom. When his new boss turns out to be a woman who is both his former lover and a business rival, Sanders determines to be professional. But after a closed-door meeting, the woman accuses him of sexual harassment. It's her word against his, and suddenly Sanders finds himself caught in a nightmarish web of deceit in which he is branded as the villain. As he scrambles to save his career and his reputation, Sanders uncovers an electronic trail into DigiCom's secrets ... and the cynical scheme devised to bring him down.

Review:

"Expertly crafted, ingenious and absorbing." The Philadelphia Inquirer

Synopsis:

A brutal struggle in the cutthroat computer industry ... A shattering psychological game of cat and mouse ... A shocking accusation that threatens to derail a brilliant career ... A brutal power struggle in the cut-throat computer industry; a shattering psychological game of cat and mouse; an accusation of sexual harassment that threatens to derail a brilliant career . . . this is the electrifying core of Crichton's new novel, his first since Rising Sun.
