One of Crichton's better early works, but again s

I've been reading many of Crichton's early works. This one is better than some. This one is very dated politically and doesn't have a significant feminine character. While it suffers from some gaps in believability, it was an enjoyable listen.

Very good early effort.

Michael Crichton has improved greatly over the years this was a very good early effort. I have enjoyed reading all of his books.

Good early Crichton

This is a decent Crichton thriller. It’s got a fast pace, increasing tension and reasonably good characters. The “evil genius” villain is a bit overdone, and some of the story requires significant suspension of disbelief. But overall it works even if you can guess some of it

A Thrilling Read

Loved the read as a source of Chrichton I hadn't heard yet. The voice, style and pace are too indicative of Chrichtons best to be slowed down by the dated subject or the overall pulp depth. Definitely a fun one for a day's read (or listen).

Apt Title for this Thrilling Work

This was another great early Crichton effort that was published under his pseudonym John Lange. This was a crime thriller about a political radical who planned on releasing nerve has in San Diego during the Republican convention and while the President was attending. A courageous State Department agent matches with with the madman. Twists and turns abound and though dated in some areas, it still holds up well today. Christopher Lane does a wonderful job narrating the action. You can see the early influences that will color his later techno thrillers. A great read/listen.
