Review

Praise for Michael Crichton:

‘One of the most ingenious, inventive thriller writers around… Another high-concept treat… written in consummate page-turning style’ Observer

‘This is Crichton on top form, preying on our fears about new technology and convincing us that we aren’t half as afraid as we should be’ The Times

‘Crichton masterfully maintains the suspense throughout the fast-paced story … Prey will invade your nightmares for a long time to come’ Time Out

‘A satirical black-comedy thriller… Crichton writes likes Tom Wolfe on speed… completely brilliant…’ Daily Mail

‘Crichton pulls off a slick thriller at a cracking pace’ Daily Telegraph

‘Exciting … a master storyteller’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Terrific fun. The pages whip by’ Independent

‘A gripping, impeccably researched thriller’ Evening Standard
