Publisher's Summary

A riveting thriller of corporate intrigue and cutthroat competition between American and Japanese business interests.
On the forty-fifth floor of the Nakamoto tower in downtown Los Angeles - the new American headquarters of the immense Japanese conglomerate - a grand opening celebration is in full swing.
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.
Rising Sun was made into a film, starring Sean Connery.

"A grand maze of plot twists... Crichton's gift for spinning a timely yarn is going to be enough, once again, to serve a current tenant of the bestseller list with an eviction notice." - New York Daily News

Great Book!

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.
