As an expert handler of vemous snakes - and a smuggler of rare artefacts - Charles Raynaud is accustomed to danger. So the job bodyguarding an old acquaintance about to come into a fortune shouldn't make him break a sweat. But when the attempts on the man's life nearly get Raynaud killed, he's left wondering: is he the killers' real target...?
Long before Jurassic Park, Twister, and ER, Michael Crichton was an honors student at Harvard Medical School - and writing paperback suspense novels on the side, under the pen name John Lange. Lange wrote eight books...and then vanished. Now Hard Case Crime is proud to bring all of John Lange's work back into print for the first time in decades - and under Crichton's real name.
