For this season of peace, there is a lot of mayhem entering the List this week. With his latest novel, some critics are also suggesting Crichton himself is running amok.
At #2 is Next by Michael Crichton: "The author of “Jurassic Park” describes a not-too-distant future when genetic engineering runs amok."
At #5 is Treasure of Khan by Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler: "In his 19th adventure, Dirk Pitt confronts a murderous Mongolian tycoon who manipulates the oil market and knows the secret of Genghis."
At #6 is Brother Odd by Dean Koontz: "With his ability to see the spirits of the dead, Odd Thomas, a character in two previous novels by Koontz, heads off a catastrophe at a monastery."
