***Explicit Language Warning***

I am a huge fan of Douglas Preston's work. If you like his unique mix of Fiction and Philosophy, you will love this Novel.

Unfortunately, in a marked deviation from previous work, the use of foul language, especially the "F" word, is pervasive from almost every character.

I was quite disappointed and will not be recommending this book as I have so widely in the past. Sorry Mr. Preston, but I think you are a better writer than this.

Not good

I've really enjoyed many of Douglas Preston's works but I have to say that this one left me wanting. The character development is poor and frankly the story line is weak to the point of being laughable and it gets progressively worse at the book progresses. As other reviwers mentioned it seems as if the author tried to wrap-up the story quickly without a clear idea as to how to finish it.
