Micro by Michael Crichton and Richard Preston takes us to Hawaii where new technology is being developed that can shrink anything to a few inches—including humans! When a group of super smart grad students end up with knowledge of a murder that took place in the company that wants to hire them, they are shrunk and set loose in the rainforest. To stay alive they are forced to battle insects that are bigger & stronger than they are. Not to mention the employees of the company that are all trying to either eat them, use them to lay eggs in, or kill them. Richard Preston takes the manuscript that Michael Crichton was working on at his death and keeps the adventure & excitement going to the very last page.
