Description
A brutal struggle in the cutthroat computer industry; a shattering psychological game of cat and mouse; an accusation of sexual harassment that threatens to derail a brilliant career...this is the electrifying core of Michael Crichton's new novel, the first since Rising Sun. At the center: Tom Sanders, an up-and-coming executive with DigiCom in Seattle, a man whose corporate future is certain. Until: after a closed-door meeting with his new boss -- a woman who was his lover ten years before, a woman who has been promoted to the position he expected to have -- he is accused of sexually harassing her. Now he finds himself trapped between what he knows to be true and what he knows others will assume to be the truth. And, as he uncovers an electronic trail into the company's secrets, he begins to grasp just how cynical and manipulative an abuse of truth has actually occurred... Tackling one of the most divisive issues of our time, Disclosure compels us to see beyond our traditional responses. It is Michael Crichton at his best. Michael Crichton's novels include The Terminal Man, Congo, Sphere, Jurassic Park, and Rising Sun.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"A fresh and provocative story."—People

An up-and-coming executive at the computer firm DigiCom, Tom Sanders is a man whose corporate future is certain. But after a closed-door meeting with his new boss—a woman who is his former lover and has been promoted to the position he expected to have—Sanders finds himself caught in a nightmarish web of deceit in which he is branded the villain.

As Sanders scrambles to defend himself, he uncovers an electronic trail into the company's secrets—and begins to grasp that a cynical and manipulative scheme has been devised to bring him down.

"Crichton writes superbly. . . . The excitement rises with each page."—Chicago Tribune

"A heart-stop story running on several tracks at once. Disclosure is up to [Crichton's] usual locomotive speed."—The Boston Globe

"Expertly crafted, ingenious and absorbing."—The Philadelphia Inquirer
