Binary (novel)

"Binary" is a techno-thriller novel written by Michael Crichton in 1972.The villain is a middle-class small businessman who decides to assassinate the President of the United States. He spends his life savings to carry out the theft of an army shipment of the two precursor chemicals that form a deadly nerve agent.

The nerve agent ZN was intended to be detonated in Downtown San Diego, corresponding with the arrival of the President to attend a Republican party conference taking place there.

The Nerve Agent was contained inside two alacran (a combustible plastic) tanks, and plastic explosive was placed in between, so that when the explosion occurred, the two binary gases would form ZN.

The novel was originally published under the pen-name John Lange.
