The cover of Binary, by Michael Crichton, is interesting to say the least. The red color, dark, shadowy skulls and naked woman have all the details of a James Bond type storyline. The presentation of the novel, or format, is incredible from the start. From the facts to the hourly countdown- I love it. The involvement of politics and federal agents brings the plot to life. I was pulled in from the beginning and couldn’t put this one down until the end. I wanted the story to continue. This one calls for a sequel and one much longer in page count. It reminded me why I began this series of hard case crime novels.
Political radical John Wright is plotting an act of mass destruction - and federal agent John Graves has him under surveillance, trying to figure out what the plot is.
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 before it kills a million people...including the President of the United States?
