About the Author

Long before he wrote Jurassic Park, before he scripted blockbuster movies like Twister, before he created the groundbreaking TV series ER, Michael Crichton was an honors student at Harvard Medical School - and writing paperback suspense novels on the side, under the top-secret pen name "John Lange." Lange wrote eight books between 1966 and 1972...and then vanished.

Until, 40 years after John Lange was born, Michael Crichton chose Hard Case Crime to bring him back, personally re-editing two Lange books, even writing new chapters for one of them. Now Hard Case Crime is proud to bring all of John Lange's work back into print for the first time in decades - and the first time ever under Michael Crichton's real name.

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.
