Tom Sanders is an executive at Digicom a tech company that is planning a merger. A former girlfriend, Meredith, is hired as his boss and he ends up accusing her of sexual harrassment. The plot also involves a technology part involving problems with a computer drive Digicom manufactures. The sexual harrassment story was fine. The fact that the story was written awhile ago and the technology is very outdated by todays standards really pulled me out of the book. ( )

What a nice way to see how a woman can control a situation. Every time you want to interrupt and tell him how to handle the situation. Great reading, don't forget to see the movie, although the book is much better. ( )

Very good book. It's my first by Michael Crichton, and now I want to read more. It was one of this month's selections (didi not win) for one of my book clubs. I could hardly put the book down, because I wanted to know what was going to happen! ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345391055, Mass Market Paperback)

"Expertly crafted, ingenious and absorbing." The Philadelphia Inquirer.
The #1 Bestseller by the author of "Jurassic Park." As he did in "Rising Sun," Crichton focuses on a topic as close as today's newspaper headlines: sexual harassment.
Tom Sanders is an up-and-coming executive at the computer firm DigiCom. When his new boss turns out to be a woman who is both his former lover and a business rival, Sanders determines to be professional. But after a closed-door meeting, the woman accuses him of sexual harassment. It's her word against his, and suddenly Sanders finds himself caught in a nightmarish web of deceit in which he is branded as the villian. As he scrambles to save his career and his reputation, Sanders uncovers an electronic trail into DigiCom's secrets . . . and the cynical scheme devised to bring him down.
