Summary

Klaus and Doris have just made the discovery of their lives - a complete Neanderthal skeleton buried in a newly opened sinkhole. But on removing it, something else tumbles free. Something that switches on, and then calls home.

Soon the owners are coming back, and nothing will stop their ruthless search for their lost prize.

Gruesome corpses begin to pile up, and Detective Ed Heisner of the Berlin Police is assigned to a case like nothing he has ever experienced before in his life. Heisner must stay one step ahead of a group of secretive Special Forces soldiers also tracking the strange device, while trying to find an unearthly group of killers that are torturing, burning, and obliterating their victims all the way across the city.

The Fossil is a time jumping detective novella, where humans soon find that time can be the greatest weapon of all.

Really awful!

I usually enjoy Greig Beck books. Not so in this case. I'm legally blind and rely on Audible books for my "Reading."

This very short Book could have been an outline for a novel, Or a short story assignment for a junior high school student. I've been reading sci-fi since I was eight and I am now almost 80. The premise is it now of the book, I mean short story, is not new

The only plus I can find is that it's a quick listen.

The Outer Limits on steroids

Another wild adventure/horror tale from the Greig Beck universe. Not a big novel but more like an episode. The old Television show “the Outer Limits” had one scary monster or monstrous thing in each episode. Same with each Beck adventure- and this one doesn’t disappoint. I hope this tale gets woven into a larger part of Greig’s universe of action heroes and creatures. Highly recommend from a fan who doesn’t go for such short fare.
