In a locked Honolulu office building, three men are found dead,
covered in ultrafine, razor-sharp cuts. The only clue left behind
is a tiny bladed robot. In the lush forests of Oahu, trillions of
microorganisms are being discovered, feeding a search for priceless
drugs. In Cambridge, Massachusetts, seven graduate students are
recruited by a microbiology start-up and dispatched to a mysterious
lab in Hawaii, where they are promised access to tools that will
open a whole new scientific frontier.
But once in the Oahu rain forest, the scientists are thrust into
a hostile wilderness where they find themselves prey to a
technology of radical and unbridled power. To survive, they must
harness the inherent forces of nature itself.
An instant classic, Micro pits nature against technology in
vintage Crichton fashion. Completed by visionary science writer
Richard Preston, this boundary-pushing thriller melds scientific
fact with pulse-pounding fiction to create yet another masterpiece
of sophisticated, cutting-edge entertainment.
