The Andromeda strain by Michael Crichton( Book )

18 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El relato de Crichton se enciende con el tempo dramático de un cohete de acción retardada. Errores, descubrimientos, accidentes, imprevisiones, todo se produce en un ámbito científico, absolutamente convincente (computadoras, microscopios electrónicos, escenarios del Instituto Hudson); trama y personajes se precipitan hacia el punto de la inevitable explosión. Pero Crichton nos brinda algo más que emociones. LA AMENAZA DE ANDROMEDA aborda, desde el ángulo de la ficción, la lógica de la investigación operativa y nos introduce al totalitarismo estadístico del establishmen militar-científico-espacial

Devereaux descubre que el gobierno y la inteligencia francesa están infiltrados por los soviéticos, dispuestos a usar a su favor la política de Charles de Gaulle para provocar la salida de Francia de la OTAN, debilitando así la alianza. Cuando Devereaux hace conocer sus investigaciones, sufre un intento de asesinato. Dos agentes, un grupo de exiliados cubanos y algunos disidentes soviéticos llevan adelante una misión contra reloj para salvar sus vidas, la OTAN y, tal vez, al mundo. Alto voltaje

It was a time of crisis, a time of tragedy--and a time of transcendent courage and determination.

"London, 1958.

Moving in the midst of this world of mods and rockers, Teddy gangs and trads, and snapping every scene with his trusty Rolleiflex, is MacInnes's young photographer, whose unique wit and honest views remain the definitive account of London life in the 1950s and what it means to be a teenager."--Page 4 of cover
