"Set in the ultra-glamorous French Riviera of the late sixties . . . pure, high-octane entertainment" from the blockbuster author of Jurassic Park (Pop Mythology).

An arms dealer in Copenhagen dies after sipping a poisoned martini. An American diplomat in Lisbon is shot in the back of the head. A Frenchman survives being pushed in front of a train, only to be murdered in his hospital bed. Though seemingly unconnected, these events are part of an international conspiracy that could spell death for Roger Carr.
Carr is a lawyer, but he has no love for Lady Justice. A dilettante playboy sent to France on a cushy assignment, he lands himself right in the middle of an international arms deal. Both sides of the conflict have mistaken him for an agent, and the secret service interventions of a dozen countries will do anything to secure him—dead or alive.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Michael Crichton including rare images from the author's estate.
