Two of the bestselling storytellers of all time have created an unforgettable thriller. A history-making volcanic eruption is about to destroy the Big Island of Hawaii. But a secret held for decades by the military is more terrifying than the volcano.
Michael Crichton, creator of Jurassic Park and Westworld, had a passion project he had 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 brought it to 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.
