#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
"As well built a thrill machine as a suspense novel can be."—The New York Times Book Review
On the forty-fifth floor of the Nakamoto tower in downtown Los Angeles—the new American headquarters of the immense Japanese conglomerate—a grand opening celebration is in full swing.
On the forty-sixth floor, in an empty conference room, the corpse of a beautiful young woman is discovered.
The investigation immediately becomes a headlong chase through a twisting maze of industrial intrigue, a no-holds-barred conflict in which control of a vital American technology is the fiercely coveted prize—and in which the Japanese saying "Business is war" takes on a terrifying reality.
"A grand maze of plot twists . . . Crichton's gift for spinning a timely yarn is going to be enough, once again, to serve a current tenant of the bestseller list with an eviction notice."—New York Daily News
"The action in Rising Sun unfolds at a breathless pace."—Business Week
