Publisher's Summary

Political radical John Wright is plotting an act of mass destruction - and federal agent John Graves has him under surveillance, trying to figure out what the plot is.

When a government computer is hacked and a high-security shipment of nerve gas gets hijacked, Graves puts the pieces together - but can he stop Wright from unleashing his weapon before it kills a million people...including the President of the United States?

Fast paced, explosive, and fun.

Looking for a quick read that doesn't require too much thought or attention, but also doesn't insult your intelligence? Look no further.

Binary is a fast paced thriller that will keep you turning the pages as quickly as you can read. Easy to complete in 1 or 2 sittings. Great characters, strong plot, and a good villain male this a read that will keep you entertained from the first page to the last.

One of Crichton's better early works, but again s

I've been reading many of Crichton's early works. This one is better than some. This one is very dated politically and doesn't have a significant feminine character. While it suffers from some gaps in believability, it was an enjoyable listen.

Good early Crichton

This is a decent Crichton thriller. It’s got a fast pace, increasing tension and reasonably good characters. The “evil genius” villain is a bit overdone, and some of the story requires significant suspension of disbelief. But overall it works even if you can guess some of it
