"Crichton keeps us guessing at every turn in his best work since The Andromeda Strain."
--Los Angeles Times
"Sphere may be Crichton's best novel, but even if it ranked only second or third, it would be a must for suspense fans."
A classic thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Crichton, Sphere is a bravura demonstration of what he does better than anyone: riveting storytelling that combines frighteningly plausible, cutting edge science and technology with pulse-pounding action and serious chills. The gripping story of a group of American scientists sent to the ocean floor to investigate an alien ship, only to confront a terrifying discovery that defies imagination, Sphere is Crichton prime--truly masterful fiction from the ingenious mind that brought us Prey, State of Fear, and Jurassic Park.

Back cover copy
In the middle of the South Pacific, a thousand feet below the surface of the water, a huge vessel is discovered resting on the ocean floor. It is a spaceship of phenomenal dimensions, apparently undamaged by its fall from the sky. And, most startling, it appears to be at least three hundred years old. But even more fantastic--and frightening--is what waits inside . . .
"A page-turner with oomph. . . . Crichton's writing is cinematic, with powerful visual images and nonstop action."--Newsweek
