The best book I read this year was The Cobra Event by Richard Preston. It isn’t a recent novel (1998, actually) but I only learned of it after reading Micro, which was started by Michael Crichton and completed by Richard Preston. The Cobra Event is similar to a Crichton book in that it is very exciting but has a strong science foundation. In this time of frequent acts of terrorism, it is a very plausible and scary story.
