Summary

A riveting thriller of corporate intrigue and cutthroat competition between American and Japanese business interests 
 
On the forty-fifth floor of the Nakamoto tower in downtown Los Angeles-the new American headquarters of the immense Japanese conglomerate-a grand opening celebration is in full swing. 
 
On the forty-sixth floor, in an empty conference room, the corpse of a beautiful young woman is discovered. 
 
The investigation immediately becomes a headlong chase through a twisting maze of industrial intrigue, a no-holds-barred conflict in which control of a vital American technology is the fiercely coveted prize-and in which the Japanese saying "business is war" takes on a terrifying reality. 
 
Rising Sun was made into a film, starring Sean Connery. 
 
"As well built a thrill machine as a suspense novel can be." -The New York Times Book Review 
 
"A grand maze of plot twists… Crichton's gift for spinning a timely yarn is going to be enough, once again, to serve a current tenant of the bestseller list with an eviction notice." -New York Daily News
