Michael Crichton's latest

Just found out today that Michael Crichton has a new book coming out December 7 (with an announced first printing of 2 million copies). This looks like it's probably old news already, but somehow I missed it.

The book is to be called State of Fear and here's the plot description:
Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world. From the streets of Paris, to the glaciers of Antarctica to the exotic and dangerous Solomon Islands, State of Fear takes the reader on a rollercoaster thrill ride, all the while keeping the brain in high gear.

Sounds interesting. I'm a definite admirer of Crichton's work, so I look forward to it.
