#1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Crichton reveals a universe too small to see and too dangerous to ignore

In the locked office of a Honolulu building, three men are found dead, with no sign of struggle except for ultrafine, razor-sharp cuts covering their bodies.

In the lush rain forests of Oahu, groundbreaking technology has ushered in a revolutionary era of biological prospecting. Here, seven brilliant graduate students recruited by a pioneering microbiology start-up company are thrust into a hostile wilderness that reveals profound and surprising dangers at every turn. Prey to a technology of radical and unbridled power--armed only with their knowledge of the natural world--they must harness the inherent forces of nature itself to survive.

Melding scientific fact with pulse-pounding fiction in vintage Michael Crichton fashion--completed by visionary science writer Richard Preston--Micro is an instant classic of sophisticated, cutting-edge entertainment.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-07-01)

After Crichton's death in November 2008, Preston (The Hot Zone) was drafted to complete the work Crichton had begun on this novel. The setting: Hawaii. The characters: graduate students at a bio tech company who get dumped into the rain forest and must use their science smarts to survive. Preston sounds like a good match up with the author of Jurassic Park, and fans of both authors will want this.
