A brutal struggle in the cutthroat computer industry; a shattering psychological game of cat and mouse; an accusation of sexual harassment that threatens to derail a brilliant career...this is the electrifying core of Michael Crichton's new novel, the first since Rising Sun.
At the center: Tom Sanders, an up-and-coming executive with DigiCom in Seattle, a man whose corporate future is certain. Until: after a closed-door meeting with his new boss -- a woman who was his lover ten years before, a woman who has been promoted to the position he expected to have -- he is accused of sexually harassing her. Now he finds himself trapped between what he knows to be true and what he knows others will assume to be the truth. And, as he uncovers an electronic trail into the company's secrets, he begins to grasp just how cynical and manipulative an abuse of truth has actually occurred...
Tackling one of the most divisive issues of our time, Disclosure compels us to see beyond our traditional responses. It is Michael Crichton at his best.
Michael Crichton's novels include The Terminal Man, Congo, Sphere, Jurassic Park, and Rising Sun.

Michael Crichton was born in Chicago in 1942. His novels include The Andromeda Strain, The Great Train Robbery, Congo, Airframe, Jurassic Park and Disclosure. He is also the creator of the television series ER.From AudioFile:
Tom Sanders, division head at DigiCom, expects to be appointed vice president. He's astounded when Meredith Johnson (his former lover) is given the job instead. Johnson's sexual harassment of Sanders and his subsequent claim against her are only the beginning of a complicated tale of intrigue and corporate maneuvering. The abridgment is seamless retaining the suspense and complexity of the story. John Lithgow performs the range of voices skillfully and conveys emotions well. The story moves quickly, carrying the listener along as Tom struggles to untangle the predicament he makes for himself. Given the publicity and controversy over Disclosure, this audio title is sure to be popular. M.A.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
