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. State of Fear takes the reader from the glaciers of Iceland to the volcanoes of Antarctica, from the Arizona desert to the deadly jungles of the Solomon Islands, from the streets of Paris to the beaches of Los Angeles. The novel races forward, taking the reader on a rollercoaster thrill ride, all the while keeping the brain in high gear. Gripping and thought-provoking, State of Fear is Michael Crichton at his very best.

"Michael Crichton and John Bedford Lloyd make a great audio team. Crichton pits mainstream environmentalists against tree-hugging terrorists set on using high-tech machines and explosives to create "natural" disasters that will make the world take notice and fear global warming. When the heroes find themselves trapped in a glacier, Lloyd makes listeners feel their frigid straining to escape. When they're surrounded by lightning, listeners feel their hair-raising terror. When they face a tsunami, listeners see the wall of water approach. When they're tied to stakes by island cannibals, listeners feel their stomachs churn. Lloyd adds emotional layers to Crichton's characters and makes real what some would call science fiction. D.J.M. 2006 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
