Publisher's Summary

Toussaint, Montana isn't easily rattled, but an earthquake uncovers an ancient burial ground and the well-preserved bones of a primitive people. When an archeologist is found with a bullet in his back and a dinosaur tooth in his pocket, sometime sleuth Gabriel Du Pre steps in with the wisdom and vision of his Metis ancestors to uncover the answers. But while Indian archeologists and entrepreneurs battle for valuable land and the precious remains of a dinosaur, a predator more dangerous than the great T. Rex walks the Montana plains, hungry to strike again.

What the Critics Say

"Strange, seductive...haunting....The wonder of these voices is that they are...blunt and crude, soaked in whiskey and raspy from laughter, but still capable of leaving echoes." (New York Times Book Review).
"Gloriously unbridled... [Du Pre] resonates with originality and energy." (Chicago Tribune).
"Wonderful...a wise tale that wears its idealism as casually as a pair of old jeans." (Washington Post).

Excellent on every front.

This is a great story, it is written extreamly well, it is narrated in an outstanding manner and the dialog is so entertaining that there are no moments where you want the action to move any faster than the pace it was written at. I loved the eccentric characters, the back story on archeology. I would highly recommend this book, it is one of the best finds I have run across in a long time.
