La amenaza de Andrómeda by Michael Crichton( Book )

17 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 37 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.
