Publisher's Summary

A manuscript illuminated with fantastical creatures said to have roamed the Garden of Eden, the bestiary has been handed down throughout the centuries by one of the Arab world's most prominent families. Commissioned to restore it is the beautiful young art curator Beth Cox. But it is Beth's husband, Carter - a paleontologist making his own dire discoveries in Los Angeles's famed La Brea Tar Pits - who will be led by the bestiary into a living, breathing menagerie of wonders and horrors.

I do not like the book.

Not a good book in my opinion. I would like to remove it from my library.

Ancient Legendary Beasts Come To Los Angeles

From the Iraq war to the high society community of Bel Aire, creatures are brought forth.
Add:
an Iraqi aristocrat with deep dark secrets
human skeleton's found in the La Bria Tar Pits
A group of self-styled militia with some bad ideas
a former military man with a more than slightly crooked outlook on life
strip clubs
ancient manuscripts
what might be ghosts
a menagerie of animals that should not exist

Of course, mayhem ensues.

This is a fun read.
I did not realize when I began that this is actually a sequel to VIGIL by the same author.
Reading that first would doubtless make a few passages here make more sense.
If you have not read VIGIL you can get by just fine, but you will be wondering what is going on a couple of spots in the story.
