The operation is supposed to research any object coming back to earth from space. The research center is in Nevada somewhere and has a nuclear self-destruct.
"It was all over in three seconds." (p. 166) but two people have survived. One an infant and a sixty year old man. They have nothing in common but they survived in some way. And now a fighter jet flying over Piedmont crashes , but what happened shouldnąt have happened łThe pilot had said: 'Something is wrong.' And then, a moment later, 'My rubber air hose is dissolving. It must be the vibration. It's just disintegrating to dust.' "(p.188)
Michael Crichton is a great writer who puts allot of suspense in his writing. He leaves his reader not wanting to stop, having great cliff hangers at the end of each chapter. This is a great book and I suggest this book to anyone who loves a good novel.
