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.

I've seen the movie, but that didn't take away from the book at all what so ever. Great 'whodunit' with more twists and turns than you'd ever expect! Also the way MC weaves real information into a great story is unbeatable. Definitely recommend.

Wasn't expecting this to be so interesting!
I have to have an audio book going every day, I'm addicted, and I don't watch TV. With this last sale, I picked up as many as I could to add to the regular-priced 6 - 9 books I buy each month -- which gets expensive. A lot of the book were larks, titles not on my wishlist and many I'd never heard of. I chose according to the Audible reviews, what listeners liked the best. There have been only a couple I couldn't make it through, but I have to say, *Wow! You guys are good!* I've liked most of them and it was fun to read outside my usual aisles. Rising Sun was one of those surprises. I expected Crichton to pack a lot of suspense and thrills into a good story, but I was concerned whether this book would be relevant to today, or if it would be too dated. Well, surprise surprise! This was a winner with a lot of political relevance 25 yrs. after the original novel was written. Thoroughly enjoyed and recommend. Thanks for the great reviews that led me to this one.
