Michael Crichton and Richard Preston: Micro (UK 2012)

From the Publisher:
An instant classic in the vein of Jurassic Park, this boundary-pushing novel has all the hallmarks of Michael Crichton's greatest adventures with its combination of pulse-pounding thrills, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research

Three men are found dead in a locked second-floor office in Honolulu. There is no sign of struggle, though their bodies are covered in ultra-fine, razor-sharp cuts. With no evidence, the police dismiss it as a bizarre suicide pact. But the murder weapon is still in the room, almost invisible to the human eye.

In Cambridge, Massachusetts, seven graduate students at the forefront of their fields are recruited by a pioneering microbiology start-up company. Nanigen MicroTechnologies sends them to a mysterious laboratory in Hawaii, where they are promised access to tools that will open up a whole new scientific frontier.

But this opportunity of a lifetime will teach them the true cost of existing at the cutting-edge...

The group becomes prey to a technology of radical, unimaginable power and is thrust out into the teeming rainforest. Armed only with their knowledge of the natural world, the young scientists face a hostile wilderness that threatens danger at every turn.

To survive, they must harness the awe-inspiring creative -- and destructive -- forces of nature itself.

Michael Crichton and Richard Preston: Micro. Escape is impossible. Survival is not enough. HarperCollins, ISBN: 9780007350001 (April, 2012), 429 p., £7.99.

Micro

Michael Crichton and Richard Preston: Micro (UK 2011)

From the Publisher:
In the vein of Jurassic Park, a new pulse-pounding high concept thriller pitting nature against technology in vintage Crichton fashion
In the lush forests of Oahu, a groundbreaking new technology has thrown open the door to a new era of bio-prospecting. An advance in micro robotics has put unheard of resources at the fingertips of science; trillions of previously unknown microorganisms, tens of thousands of species of bacteria, are being discovered, feeding a search for new life-saving drugs and profitable applications on a scale beyond anything previously imagined.

In Cambridge, Massachusetts, a group of graduate students at the forefront of their fields are recruited to work at a cutting edge microbiology start-up. Nanigen MicroTechnologies' exploratory work is conducted under a veil of secrecy, and promises the young researchers the chance to wield unprecedented new tools at the limits of scientific discovery. To participate they must commit now and come to Hawaii -- or be left behind and watch their peers reap the rewards.

But when the true costs of Nanigen's innovations are revealed in Oahu, the graduate students find themselves cast out of the stable certainties of the lab, thrust into a hostile wilderness, prey to a technology of radical and unbridled power. With nothing for protection but their specialized knowledge of the natural world, they are forced to face the rainforest, which is revealing a hidden environment of profound treasures -- and intense danger -- at every turn. And the only way out may be by harnessing the very powers of nature and technology that are pitted against them.
