Excellent read. Made me want to stay in the car to finish the book, not easy to do for someone who is on the road as much as I am.
This was a surprise. A nice twist on the treasure hunt / pirate genre. Definitely one of Douglas Preston's best efforts.
Started off quick and pulls you into what's going on. I feel a bit educated after each of Preston's books!
"Fun and suspenseful,"
with a new twist on the dinosaur story for all the parents of young dinosaur expert toddlers.
"A must read for fans."
Writer has great ideas. Museum is great place to get those ideas, keep them coming.
Standard chase fare wrapped around the kind of science based story that Michael Crichton does a whole lot better.
Interesting story line with enough twists & turns to hold your attention all the way through, though you could see a few of them coming from a mile away. The characters are very believable & I will definitely listen to more books by this author. For me, this is a straight ahead action/adventure & I was a little hard pressed to see why Audible includes this title under Science Fiction. Either way, a good read.
