The Andromeda strain by Michael Crichton( Book )
18 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 40 libraries worldwide
El relato de Crichton se enciende con el tempo dramático de un cohete de acción retardada. Errores, descubrimientos, accidentes, imprevisiones, todo se produce en un ámbito científico, absolutamente convincente (computadoras, microscopios electrónicos, escenarios del Instituto Hudson); trama y personajes se precipitan hacia el punto de la inevitable explosión. Pero Crichton nos brinda algo más que emociones. LA AMENAZA DE ANDROMEDA aborda, desde el ángulo de la ficción, la lógica de la investigación operativa y nos introduce al totalitarismo estadístico del establishmen militar-científico-espacial
Topaz : a novel by Leon Uris( Book )
18 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 32 libraries worldwide
A novel of international diplomacy and intrigue set in various locales around the world. Taking off from the Cuban missile crisis, the story is a combination of Russian espionage, the dedication of a French intelligence officer, and the devotion of the women in his life. Apparently the main point in the whole thing is the revelation of the direct line a Communist agency has to the top level in France. This is the secret of "Topaz."

QB VII by Leon Uris( Book )
11 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Abraham Aby, el famoso escritor de Holocausto, se enfrenta a un juicio por calumnias en la sala séptima del Tribunal Superior (el QBVII del titulo). En su libro, Aby ha acusado al eminente cirujano Sir Adam Kelno del más bestial sadismo en el campo de exterminio nazi de Jadwiga. Kelno lo lleva a juicio. Los dos equipos, el de la defensa y el de la acusación, libran una batalla legal que tiene las características de una guerra a vida o muerte. Lejos de hacer al lector testigo, una vez más, de las atrocidades de los campos, Uris desarrolla una trama de suspense que atrapa desde la primera página. Kelno, presentado bajo la luz favorecedora que le da su situación social, una sólida cultura y una inteligencia sagaz, irá viendo cómo caen todos su ropajes. Hasta desvelarlo como lo que realmente es: un culpable de crímenes contra la humanidad

"London, 1958. In the smoky jazz clubs of Soho and the coffee bars of Notting Hill, the young and the restless--the absolute beginners--are revoutionising youth culture and forging a new carefree lifestyle of sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll. Moving in the midst of this world of mods and rockers, Teddy gangs and trads, and snapping every scene with his trusty Rolleiflex, is MacInnes's young photographer, whose unique wit and honest views remain the definitive account of London life in the 1950s and what it means to be a teenager."--Page 4 of cover
