  • "Der Millionär und Lebemann George Morton kommt einer unglaublichen Verschwörung auf die Spur. Die Umweltorganisation NERF, die er mit grosszügigen Spenden unterstützt, macht gemeinsame Sache mit skrupellosen Ökoterroristen. Ihr neuester Plan: Durch ein künstlich ausgelöstes Seebeben wollen sie ganz Kalifornien überfluten, um die Aufmerksamkeit der Welt auf die von NERF organisierte Klimakonferenz zu lenken. Morton setzt alles daran, diesem Wahnsinn ein Ende zu bereiten, doch die Terroristen sind ihm immer einen Schritt voraus ... Michael Crichton wurde 1942 in Chicago geboren und studierte in Harvard Medizin; seine Romane, die in über 36 Sprachen übersetzt werden, verkauften sich mehr als 200 Millionen Mal, dreizehn davon wurden verfilmt. Zu seinen bekanntesten Büchern zählen 'Next', 'Welt in Angst', 'Timeline', 'Jurassic Park' und 'Andromeda'. Crichton, Schöpfer der Serie Emergency Room, ist bis heute der einzige Künstler, der es schaffte, mit Film, Fernsehserie und Roman gleichzeitig die ersten Plätze der Charts zu belegen. Crichton, der seit Mitte der Sechzigerjahre Romane schrieb, griff immer wieder gekonnt neueste naturwissenschaftliche und technische Forschungen auf. Im November 2008 starb Michael Crichton im Alter von 66 Jahren. Bis zuletzt hat er an seinem neuen Wissenschaftsthriller 'Micro' geschrieben."
  • "Amazon.com Exclusive Content A Michael Crichton Timeline Amazon.com reveals a few facts about the "father of the techno-thriller." 1942: John Michael Crichton is born in Chicago, Illinois on Oct. 23. 1960: Crichton graduates from Roslyn High School on Long Island, New York, with high marks and a reputation as a star basketball player. He decides to attend Harvard University to study English. During his studies, he rankles under his writing professors' criticism. As an act of rebellion, Crichton submits an essay by George Orwell as his own. The professor doesn't catch the plagiarism and gives Orwell a B-. This experience convinces Crichton to change his field of study to anthropology. 1964: Crichton graduates summa cum laude from Harvard University in anthropology. After studying further as a visiting lecturer at Cambridge University and receiving the Henry Russell Shaw Travelling Fellowship, which allowed him to travel in Europe and North Africa, Crichton begins coursework at the Harvard School of Medicine. To help fund his medical endeavors, he writes spy thrillers under several pen names. One of these works, A Case of Need, wins the 1968 Mystery Writers of America's Edgar Allan Poe Award. 1969: Crichton graduates from Harvard Medical school and is accepted as a post-doctoral fellow at the Salk Institute for Biological Science in La Jolla, Calif. However, his career in medicine is waylaid by the publication of the first novel under his own name, The Andromeda Strain. The novel, about an apocalyptic plague, climbs high on bestseller lists and is later made into a popular film. Crichton said of his decision to pursue writing full time: "To quit medicine to become a writer struck most people like quitting the Supreme Court to become a bail bondsman." 1972: Crichton's second novel under his own name The Terminal Man, is published. Also, two of Crichton's previous works under his pen names, Dealing and A Case of Need are made into movies. After watching the filming, Crichton decides to try his hand at directing. He will eventually direct seven films including the 1973 science-fiction hit Westworld, which was the first film ever to use computer-generated effects. 1980: Crichton draws on his anthropology background and fascination with new technology to create Congo, a best-selling novel about a search for industrial diamonds and a new race of gorillas. The novel, patterned after the adventure writings of H. Ryder Haggard, updates the genre with the inclusion of high-tech gadgets that, although may seem quaint 20 years later, serve to set Crichton's work apart and he begins to cement his reputation as "the father of the techno-thriller." 1990: After the 1980s, which saw the publication of the underwater adventure Sphere (1987) and an invitation to become a visiting writer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1988), Crichton begins the new decade with a bang via the publication of his most popular novel, Jurassic Park. The book is a powerful example of Crichton's use of science and technology as the bedrock for his work. Heady discussion of genetic engineering, chaos theory, and paleontology run throughout the tightly-wound thriller that strands a crew of scientists on an island populated by cloned dinosaurs run amok. The novel inspires the 1993 Steven Spielberg film, and together book and film will re-ignite the world's fascination with dinosaurs. 1995: Crichton resurrects an idea from his medical school days to create the Emmy-Award Winning television series ER. In this year, ER won eight Emmys and Crichton received an award from the Producers Guild of America in the category of outstanding multi-episodic series. Set in an insanely busy an often dangerous Chicago emergency room, the fast-paced drama is defined by Crichton's now trademark use of technical expertise and insider jargon. The year also saw the publication of The Lost World returning readers to the dinosaur-infested island. 2000: In recognition for Crichton's contribution in popularizing paleontology, a dinosaur discovered in southern China is named after him. "Crichton's ankylosaur" is a small, armored plant-eating dinosaur that dates to the early Jurassic Period, about 180 million years ago. "For a person like me, this is much better than an Academy Award," Crichton said of the honor. 2004: Crichton's newest thriller State of Fear is published.

  • "An intelligence agent travels to such exotic locations as Tokyo, Iceland, Antarctica, and the Solomon Islands in a desperate attempt to prevent a global environmental catastrophe."
  • "In Paris, a physicist dies after performing a laboratory experiment for a beautiful visitor. In the jungles of Malaysia, a mysterious buyer purchases deadly cavitation technology, built to his specifications. In Vancouver, a small research submarine is leased for use in the waters off New Guinea. And in Tokyo, an intelligence agent tries to understand what it all means. Thus begins Michael Crichton's exciting and provocative technothriller, State of Fear. Only Michael Crichton's unique ability to blend science fact and pulse-pounding fiction could bring such disparate elements to a heart-stopping conclusion. This is Michael Crichton's most wide-ranging thriller.
