Description

The biggest thriller of 2024: A history-making eruption is about to destroy the Hawaii's Main Island. But a secret held for decades by the military is far more terrifying than any volcano.

Michael Crichton, creator of Jurassic Park and Westworld, had a passion project he'd been pursuing for years ahead of his untimely death. Knowing how special it was, his widow held back his notes and the partial manuscript till she found the right author to complete it.

The author she chose is the world's most popular storyteller: James Patterson. Eruption brings the pace of Patterson to the concept of Crichton--the most anticipated mega-thriller in years.
