Micro is described as a high-concept thriller which follows the story of seven graduate students recruited to work in Hawaii for a mysterious biotech company called Nanigen MicroTechnologies — only to find themselves miniaturized and cast out into the Oahu rainforest, with nothing but their scientific expertise and wits to protect them.

Micro was one of Crichton’s final novels but unfortunately the writer was unable to finish writing the story before his passing in 2008. The novel’s uncompleted manuscript was found in Crichton’s computer and was completed by Richard Preston. The book was ultimately published in 2011.
