FROM THE BLURB:


On the forty-fifth floor of the Nakamoto Tower - the new American headquarters of the immense Japanese conglomerate in downtown L.A. - a grand opening celebration is in full swing.

On the forty-sixth floor, in an empty conference room, the dead body of a beautiful young woman is discovered.

The investigation begins...and 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 the Japanese saying 'business is war' takes on a terrifying reality...

8 out of 10

I decided to read this before I released it for BookCrossing Monopoly - this is the second Michael Crichton book I’ve read recently!

An interesting and thought provoking look at the economic and political relationship between America and Japan. While doing my grocery shopping I was especially careful to buy Australian made products. I found the contrast between the ways the different cultures perceive the same situation fascinating. A mystery that kept me guessing until the end!
