Overview

Binary: A Novel by Michael Crichton, John Lange

An agent races to stop a chemical attack in this thriller from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Andromeda Strain and Jurassic Park.

His name is John Wright, and he’s the most dangerous man in the United States. A millionaire radical with a deep hatred for everything America stands for, he has concocted a scheme that will shatter the very foundation of our democracy—and he’s just crazy enough to pull it off. The only man who can stop him is John Graves, an embittered federal agent whose mission in life is to destroy Wright. He’ll get his chance—or America will burn.
 
A train races across the Utah desert, carrying a shipment of the deadliest nerve gas known to man. Seven mobsters stop the train, steal the gas, and hand it over to Wright. His target? The Republican National Convention in San Diego, where unleashing the gas will kill one million honest citizens, including the US president. Graves has just one shot to stop Wright—and for the sake of democracy, he’d better not miss.
 
From “the master of the sci-tech thriller,” this is a terrifying high-speed novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end (Booklist).

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Michael Crichton including rare images from the author’s estate.

If you like Mr. and Mrs. Smith, you will love Michael Crichton's Binary! Originally published in 1974 under his pen name John Lange (and literally impossible to find in paperback), Binary is one of Crichton’s best early works! The story is about John Graves and John Wright; Graves is a secret agent who is assigned to track Wright due to ‘apprehensive’ behavior.   It is non-stop action on every page! They are always trying to outsmart each other, and you can’t help but get hooked. This is a quick, simple, but impressive work of literature that should not be ignored.

Great to see the John Lange titles available as they are impossible to find in print. Favorite of his early work.

A very quick read.  Fast-paced but mostly predictable.  Not sure why they put a woman on the cover; I don't recall there being any female characters.
