unnerving tale of the other side of corporate workplace sexual harrassment ( )
  petrichor8 | Jun 6, 2016 |
In Disclosure, Tom Sanders, a very flawed protagonist, is vying for the same position at Digital Communications as beautiful and talented Meredith Johnson. Meredith gets the promotion and then later tries to seduce Tom. He then files a sexual harassment suit against the company. This sets up a series of events involving large conspiracies, sabotage, and corporate espionage. The most memorable part of this novel is when Tom links into a virtual reality module in an attempt to save his reputation and career.

The plot was well thought out and the pace of the novel was good. For the time, there were some cutting edge high tech aspects to the novel. The worst aspect of the novel is the characterization. None of the characters in this novel are especially likeable. That made it hard to root for any of the characters, and the novel fell a little flat as a result. A solid but unspectacular novel.

High-tech company executive Tom Sanders expects a promotion following DigiCom's merger with a publishing house. Instead, his ex-girlfriend, Meredith Johnson, is offered the position he thought would be his. When he spurns her amorous advances, she exacts her revenge by undermining his work and arranging his transfer to a different department in addition to filing sexual harassment charges against him. The transfer prevents him from getting stock options which would have made him a wealthy man. Sanders decides to countersue for sexual harassment, throwing the merger and his future with the company in jeopardy. Sanders begins to build his case against Johnson with the help of virtual reality technology and a helper known only as "A. Friend." In the end, he discovers that he was a pawn in a much larger game of corporate intrigue. Along the way he learns about sexual politics in the workplace, including an array of double-standards in the way men and women are expected to act and how they are perceived.

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.
