Publisher's Summary

Michael Crichton, the number one New York Times best-selling author of Jurassic Park, returns to the world of palaeontology in this recently discovered novel - a thrilling adventure set in the Wild West during the golden age of fossil hunting.

The year is 1876. Warring Indian tribes still populate America's western territories, even as lawless gold-rush towns begin to mark the landscape. Against this backdrop two palaeontologists pillage the Wild West for dinosaur fossils while deceiving and sabotaging each other in a rivalry that will come to be known as the Bone Wars.

Into this treacherous territory plunges William Johnson, a Yale student with more privilege than sense. Determined to win a bet against his archrival, William has joined world-renowned palaeontologist Othniel Charles Marsh on his latest expedition. But Marsh becomes convinced that William is spying for his nemesis, Edwin Drinker Cope, and abandons him in Cheyenne, Wyoming, a locus of crime and vice.

Soon William joins forces with Cope and stumbles upon a discovery of historic proportions. The struggle to protect this extraordinary treasure, however, will test William's newfound resilience and pit him against some of the West's most dangerous and notorious characters....

What the Critics Say

Praise for Michael Crichton:
"One of the most ingenious, inventive thriller writers around.... Prey sees him doing what he does best - taking the very latest scientific advances and showing us their potentially terrifying underbelly. Another high-concept treat...written in consummate page-turning style." (Observer)
"This is Crichton on top form, preying on our fears about new technology and convincing us that we aren't half as afraid as we should be." (The Times)
"Mixing cutting-edge science with thrills and spills, this is classic Crichton." (Daily Mirror)

    "Meh "

    Enjoyable yarn but nothing breathtaking or ground breaking if I'm honest. Would make a reasonable short movie I guess..! And probably will.

    "brilliance again from Crichton"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dragon Teeth to be better than the print version?

    not read the print but the audio book is excellent


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragon Teeth?

    I love the concept, palaeontology meets the Wild West


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick and Sherri Crichton - Afterword ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    no so I can't compare


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    not an emotional book but but really interesting and good changes of direction, well researched and entirely believable.


    Any additional comments?

    A good read (listen) and it would make an awesome movie
