Michael Crichton's latest paperback comes with many good reviews to its name - "A first-rate thriller" "Sunday Times", "... a compulsive page turner... Crichton dazzles the reader" Nick Curtis, "Financial Times". Flight TPA 545 is nearing America when it calls in. There is an emergency and forty ambulances are needed - but nothing prepares the rescue services for what they find... von Crichton, Michael
Born in 1942 in Chicago, Michael Crichton trained as a doctor and went on to become one of the most successful writers in the world. In 1994 he achieved a feat unmatched by any other writer: that of having simultaneously a number one TV series, book and movie: with, respectively, ER (which he created), Disclosure and Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, on its release the highest-grossing film of all time. He also directed several movies, including The Great Railway Robbery with Sean Connery and Donald Sutherland. His high-concept thrillers were international bestsellers, and in total his books have sold more than 200 million copies worldwide. He died in 2008.
