Description :  Michael Crichton, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of&#xa0;Jurassic Park,&#xa0;returns to the world of paleontology in this recently discovered novel—a thrilling adventure set in the Wild West during the golden age of fossil hunting.<br /><br />The year is 1876. Warring Indian tribes still populate America’s western territories even as lawless gold-rush towns begin to mark the landscape. In much of the country it is still illegal to espouse evolution. Against this backdrop two monomaniacal paleontologists pillage the Wild West, hunting for dinosaur fossils, while surveilling, deceiving and sabotaging each other in a rivalry that will come to be known as the Bone Wars.<br /><br />Into this treacherous territory plunges the arrogant and entitled William Johnson, a Yale student with more privilege than sense. Determined to survive a summer in the west to win a bet against his arch-rival, William has joined world-renowned paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh on his latest expedition.&#xa0; But when the paranoid and secretive Marsh becomes convinced that William is spying for his nemesis, Edwin Drinker Cope, he abandons him in Cheyenne, Wyoming, a locus of crime and vice. William is forced to join forces with Cope and soon stumbles upon a discovery of historic proportions.&#xa0; With this extraordinary treasure, however, comes exceptional danger, and William’s newfound resilience will be tested in his struggle to protect his cache, which pits him against some of the West’s most notorious characters.<br /><br />A page-turner that draws on both meticulously researched history and an exuberant imagination, Dragon Teeth is based on the rivalry between real-life paleontologists Cope and Marsh; in William Johnson readers will find an inspiring hero only Michael Crichton could have imagined. Perfectly paced and brilliantly plotted, this enormously winning adventure is destined to become another Crichton classic.&#xa0;

It is an adventure of risk and rejuvenation, terror and wonder, as exciting as Michael Crichton's many masterful and widely heralded works of fiction.

Description :  Michael Crichton, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Jurassic Park,&#xa0;comes an astounding, eye-opening look at the world of genetics as it’s happening now, told as only Michael Crichton can tell it, with lightening fast pacing and thrilling chases.<br /><br />Welcome to our genetic world. Fast, furious, and out of control. This is not the world of the future—it’s the world right now. Is a loved one missing some body parts? Are blondes becoming extinct? Is everyone at your dinner table of the same species? Humans and chimpanzees differ in only 400 genes; is that why an adult human being resembles a chimp fetus? And should that worry us? There’s a new genetic cure for drug addiction—is it worse than the disease? <br /><br />We live in a time of momentous scientific leaps; a time when it’s possible to sell our eggs and sperm online for thousands of dollars; test our spouses for genetic maladies and even frame someone for a genetic crime. We live in a time when one fifth of all our genes are owned by someone else, and an unsuspecting person and his family can be pursued cross-country because they happen to have certain valuable genes within their chromosomes... <br /><br />Devilishly clever, Next blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems, and a set of new possibilities can open at every turn.

Description :  «<i>Amo qualsiasi cosa scriva Michael Crichton.</i>»<br /><b>Stephen King</b><br /><br />Honolulu, Hawaii. In un buio stabile di periferia, ufficio di un piccolo avvocato del luogo, regna il silenzio. Tutto sembra in ordine. Se non fosse per tre cadaveri stesi sul pavimento. Sul loro corpo non ci sono segni di lotta, solo dei tagli piccolissimi ma profondi e letali. L’unico indizio trovato sul luogo del delitto è un minuscolo robot, quasi invisibile all’occhio umano, dotato di lame affilatissime. La polizia brancola nel buio. Quello che tutti ignorano è che la Nanigen Micro-Technologies, una società che si occupa di microtecnologie mediche, nella foresta hawaiana nasconde una base segreta, dove mette alla prova apparecchiature finora ignote alla comunità scientifica. Qui è in corso un’operazione rivoluzionaria dai finanziamenti occulti, tesa a studiare le infinite forme di vita di cui brulica il sottobosco per sfruttarne le risorse a scopo medicinale. I dirigenti della Nanigen sono pronti a uccidere chiunque metta i bastoni fra le ruote a questo investimento miliardario. Ma per i loro laboratori hanno bisogno di reclutare nuovi, ignari scienziati: un gruppo di dottorandi dell’università di Harvard capitanati da Peter Jansen, esperto di veleni, e Karen King, aracnologa. I sette giovani, una volta approdati alle Hawaii, si trovano catapultati di persona in un pericolosissimo esperimento scientifico, e costretti a fronteggiare una natura sorprendentemente ostile e sconosciuta. <br />La foresta è piena di tranelli e ogni ramo, ogni radice che si insinua nel terreno nascondono minacce mortali, pronte a sopraffarli. E l’unica arma che gli studiosi possono usare per difendersi è la loro conoscenza del regno vegetale e animale... È questo l’ultimo entusiasmante progetto creato per i suoi lettori da Michael Crichton, che in un’intervista rilasciata poco prima della sua scomparsa raccontava di essere impegnato nella stesura del romanzo e nelle appassionanti ricerche per documentarsi. <br />Il risultato è Micro, un romanzo che raccoglie il testimone di Jurassic Park per la straordinaria abilità nell’unire divulgazione scientifica e avventura. Un thriller spettacolare e mozzafiato, che di piccolo ha solamente il nome.

Description :  An der idyllischen Dordogne in Frankreich liegt das Ausgrabungscamp des amerikanischen Geschichtsprofessors Edward Johnston. Hier bekämpften sich Engländer und Franzosen Mitte des 14. Jahrhunderts während des Hundertjährigen Krieges, und die vier Ruinen – zwei Festungen, eine Mühle und ein Kloster – sind für Johnston und seine Studenten ein ideales Betätigungsfeld. Eines Tages kommt Professor Johnston ein unheimlicher Verdacht: Könnte es sein, dass die amerikanische High-Tech-Firma ITC, die sein Forschungsprojekt seit Jahren großzügig unterstützt, eine Zeitmaschine entwickelt hat und damit bereits in die Vergangenheit gereist ist? Wie sonst ist die Genauigkeit eines Aufrissplans des Klosters zu erklären, der ihm aus Amerika in die Hände gespielt wurde? Wutentbrannt fährt Johnston in die USA. Nur wenige Tage später erreicht ein erregter Anruf das Camp: Der Professor sei ins Mittelalter gereist, und seine Studenten würden dringend gebeten, ihn von dort zurückzuholen. Auf den Wissenschaftshistoriker Chris, die Architektin Katherine und den Alltagshistoriker André wartet die Begegnung mit einer sensationellen Maschinerie, die die Erfüllung eines uralten Menschheitstraum in greifbare Nähe rückt – und eine Reise zurück in eben die Zeit, an deren Erforschung sie schon seit Jahren arbeiten. Die Verlockung, sie hautnah zu erleben – und dabei den Professor zu retten – ist größer als jede Angst...

La sagoma scura di un treno blindato attraversa la notte. All’improvviso, un’esplosione scuote il silenzio del deserto. Il treno si ferma, un gruppo di uomini armati circonda i portelloni avvolti dal fumo. I gesti sono rapidi e precisi. Il loro obiettivo anche: sottrarre due grosse bombole d’acciaio, una gialla, l’altra nera. Al loro interno, accuratamente separati, gli agenti binari di un potentissimo gas nervino destinato al dipartimento della Difesa. È un’arma chimica letale dal potenziale devastante, capace di mettere in ginocchio – se si verificasse il temutissimo scenario chiamato in codice «Beta» – la più potente democrazia del mondo occidentale. <br />San Diego, qualche giorno dopo. Mancano poche ore all’arrivo del presidente degli Stati Uniti, quando i servizi segreti collegano il furto nello Utah al sorvegliato speciale John Wright, rampollo di una famiglia di industriali e matematico talentuoso, divorato dal risentimento verso una società che considera sbagliata e che vuole sovvertire. A tenergli testa è un agente che lo conosce molto bene, John Graves: solo il suo intuito ha una possibilità di svelare l’indecifrabile piano di Wright per diffondere il gas binario. I due si fronteggiano in una sfida psicologica al cardiopalma, un conto alla rovescia per mettere in salvo la vita non solo del presidente degli Stati Uniti, ma di tutta la popolazione della costa occidentale. <br /><br />Codice Beta ha una storia editoriale unica: è uno dei progetti a cui Michael Crichton teneva di più, che lo hanno sempre accompagnato dagli inizi della sua carriera ai suoi ultimi desideri. L’autore lo scrisse sotto pseudonimo mentre studiava medicina all’università di Harvard. Anni dopo, poco prima della sua morte, decise di ridargli vita e di ripubblicarlo, con enorme successo. Dopo aver venduto oltre duecento milioni di copie nel mondo ed essere stato tradotto in trentotto lingue, Michael Crichton torna con un libro evento, il romanzo segreto di una leggenda della narrativa contemporanea, il più importante dai tempi di Jurassic Park.

Description :  Da questo romanzo il film Il tredicesimo guerriero, con Antonio Banderas.<br /><br />Un colto e curioso dignitario arabo, Ibn Fadlan, viene inviato in missione diplomatica dal suo califfo nella terra dei normanni. Siamo nel 922 dopo Cristo, e Ibn Fadlan annota nel suo diario di viaggio ciò di cui è testimone. Incontra numerosi gruppi di «barbari», che curano molto meno l’igiene di quanto non facciano con il cibo, l’alcol e il sesso. Assiste ai loro riti, alla violenza delle loro cerimonie, alle orge. Quello di Fadlan con l’Europa dell’epoca è un incontro scioccante, per lui che viene dal mondo sofisticato ed evoluto di Baghdad, la «Città della pace». Ma, nonostante la sua diversità, viene accolto nel clan vichingo in cui giunge. Gode della protezione del suo capo, Buliwyf, e seguirà il gruppo fino in Scandinavia, fino alla lotta finale contro le misteriose creature della nebbia che minacciano la sopravvivenza stessa del clan.

Description :  <b>2 MILIONI E MEZZO DI COPIE VENDUTE IN ITALIA<br />TORNA IL MAESTRO DEL TECHNO-THRILLER<br />UN FENOMENO SENZA PARAGONI</b><br /><br /><b>«Michael Crichton ha creato un nuovo genere letterario.»</b><br />ENNIO CARETTO, <i>Corriere della Sera</i><br /><br /><b>«Lo stesso ritmo mozzafiato di Jurassic Park.»</b><br /><i>Publishers Weekly</i><br /><br /><b>«Michael Crichton è il maestro indiscusso del techno-thriller.»</b><br /><i>USA TODAY</i><br /><br /> Sotto la superficie del mare, negli abissi che si spalancano al largo della barriera corallina giamaicana, il silenzio è assoluto. Accompagnato solo dal ritmico gorgogliare del respiratore subacqueo, James McGregor continua la sua discesa. Più giù, quasi completamente avvolto dalle tenebre e infestato dai barracuda, si staglia il profilo scuro e incombente del timone di uno yacht. È il Grave Descend, quaranta metri di eccellenza armatoriale, inabissatosi in circostanze misteriose qualche giorno prima. La missione per cui James, un passato nelle forze armate e un presente da cacciatore di tesori, è stato ingaggiato è in apparenza molto semplice: ispezionare il relitto per conto della compagnia assicurativa e indagare le possibili cause del naufragio. Manca più di una tessera per completare il mosaico: l’affondamento è stato denunciato alle autorità solo ventiquattr’ore dopo l’accaduto e nessuno degli uomini a bordo, sei membri dell’equipaggio e un solo passeggero tutti prontamente messi in salvo, racconta la stessa versione dei fatti. La traccia più concreta per risalire alla verità sembra passare proprio per quell’unico passeggero, l’affascinante e misteriosa Monica Grant. E mentre dalle profondità del mare riaffiora un tesoro dal valore inestimabile, James si trova ben presto a lottare per la sua stessa vita, oltre che per svelare un segreto che affonda le sue radici nel passato, nei torbidi giorni dell’armistizio italiano durante la seconda guerra mondiale. Il silenzio degli abissi è uno dei romanzi, inediti in Italia, che Michael Crichton scrisse sotto pseudonimo mentre studiava Medicina all’università di Harvard. Anni dopo, ha deciso di ridare vita a quelle storie e di ripubblicarle, con enorme successo. L’ambientazione mozzafiato, l’irresistibile fascino da classico mystery che gli ha fruttato una nomination agli Edgar Awards, oltre che la possibilità di scoprire un Crichton finora sconosciuto, fanno di Il silenzio degli abissi un vera e propria lettura obbligata per gli appassionati del genere.

Description :  «<i>Amo qualsiasi cosa scriva Michael Crichton.</i>»<br /><b>Stephen King</b><br /><br />«<i>Il suo vero talento consiste nel fare entrare il lettore nel suo immaginario estremo, senza che egli se ne renda conto.</i>»<br /><b>la Repubblica</b><br /><br />«<i>Michael Crichton sa rendere credibile l’incredibile.</i>»<br /><b>Washington Post</b><br /><br />Avventure, esperienze ed esplorazioni vissute e narrate in prima persona da Michael Crichton, fedele all’idea secondo la quale viaggiare significa anzitutto tornare a fare esperienze dirette, conoscersi più a fondo, mettersi alla prova per superare i propri limiti e le proprie paure. Dagli squali nelle acque di Tahiti agli aborigeni della Nuova Guinea, da Bangkok al Kilimanjaro, dalle tartarughe della Malesia alla solitudine del deserto americano: più che un «semplice» libro di viaggi, questo volume è il percorso di una vita all’insegna di una curiosità insaziabile. E non è un caso che tra le pagine più intense e belle del libro vi siano quelle che raccontano degli anni di apprendistato alla Harvard Medical School, in cui Crichton descrive la propria esperienza di medico.
