Then the people find a dead body of a sexy girl. The investigation begins and immediately becomes a headlong chase through a twisting maze of industrial intrigue. The barred conflict in which control of a vital american technology is the fiercely coveted prize- and the Japanese saying "business is war" takes on a terrifying reality.....
Please buy Rising Sun you wont be dissapointed. Its a value for money and a good read. As you read, the plot thickens and twists and turns. There are many suspects to the girl's murder Eddie Sukamoro, Senator Riley, Senator Morton, Weasel Wilhelm but its up to you to read and find out.
His understanding of the Japanese culture was monumental. Unfortunately, in our societies, we are unable to fully comprehend the Japanese way of life and, as a result of completing the book, I found that I had little sympathy for the Japanese...
Add to that a compelling murder mystery for which you need no knowledge of Japan or Japanese to enjoy, and you have an excellent book.

We all know how good Michael Crichton was. No need for an introduction. This book is well docummented, page-turning, interesting and easy to read.Published on 22 Nov. 2009 by Carlos Garcia Martín
Almost brilliant. The only thing that spoiled it slightly was the fact that the story kind of dragged towards the end. But this is something to be expected with Crichton. Read morePublished on 19 Oct. 2007 by MASTER SK SELVARAJ
