#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

As well built a thrill machine as a suspense novel can be. The New York Times Book Review
On the forty-fifth floor of the Nakamoto tower in downtown Los Angeles the new American headquarters of the immense Japanese conglomerate a grand opening celebration is in full swing.
On the forty-sixth floor, in an empty conference room, the corpse of a beautiful young woman is discovered.
The investigation immediately becomes a headlong chase through a twisting maze of industrial intrigue, a no-holds-barred conflict in which control of a vital American technology is the fiercely coveted prize and in which the Japanese saying Business is war takes on a terrifying reality.

A grand maze of plot twists . . . Crichton's gift for spinning a timely yarn is going to be enough, once again, to serve a current tenant of the bestseller list with an eviction notice. New York Daily News
