The Andromeda strain by Michael Crichton( Book )

18 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 40 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

Abraham Aby, el famoso escritor de Holocausto, se enfrenta a un juicio por calumnias en la sala séptima del Tribunal Superior (el QBVII del titulo).

Los dos equipos, el de la defensa y el de la acusación, libran una batalla legal que tiene las características de una guerra a vida o muerte. Lejos de hacer al lector testigo, una vez más, de las atrocidades de los campos, Uris desarrolla una trama de suspense que atrapa desde la primera página. Kelno, presentado bajo la luz favorecedora que le da su situación social, una sólida cultura y una inteligencia sagaz, irá viendo cómo caen todos su ropajes. Hasta desvelarlo como lo que realmente es: un culpable de crímenes contra la humanidad

"London, 1958. In the smoky jazz clubs of Soho and the coffee bars of Notting Hill, the young and the restless--the absolute beginners--are revoutionising youth culture and forging a new carefree lifestyle of sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll. 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

Trinity by Leon Uris( Book )

The "terrible beauty" that is Ireland comes alive in this mighty epic that re-creates that Emerald's Isle's fierce struggle for independence. Trinity is a saga of glories and defeats, triumphs and tragedies, lived by a young Catholic rebel and the beautiful and valiant Protestant girl who defied her heritage to join him. Leon Uris has painted a masterful portrait of a beleaguered people divided by religion and wealth--impoverished Catholic peasants pitted against a Protestant aristocracy wielding power over life and death
