From the Back Cover



"Crichton keeps us guessing at every turn in his best work since The Andromeda Strain."--Los Angeles Times

In the middle of the South Pacific, a thousand feet below the surface of the water, a huge vessel is discovered resting on the ocean floor. It is a spaceship of phenomenal dimensions, apparently undamaged by its fall from the sky. And, most startling, it appears to be at least three hundred years old. But even more fantastic--and frightening--is what waits inside . . .

"A page-turner with oomph. . . . Crichton's writing is cinematic, with powerful visual images and nonstop action."--Newsweek

"Sphere may be Crichton's best novel, but even if it ranked only second or third, it would be a must for suspense fans."--Miami Herald
