Up a canyon without a paddle, but with a story!

OK here's the deal. This is classic Douglas Preston/Scott Brick work, with relatively well developed characters, an interesting plot that is clearly well researched by the author, and some crackling good action scenes.

Now if you don't like the Preston/Brick combination, this is unlikely to be a book you will find compelling. I am a fan, and genuinely enjoyed it. I didn't give the story as high a rating as some, only because it is a really long stretch, but aside from that, this book comes recommended.

Chrichton-Esque

Made for movies with paper thin characters each drawn from central casting. There's the plucky vet (why he's a veterinarian I cannot figger) who just happens to have a zillion dollars in the bank, a beautiful wife, perfect for damsel in distress scenes, and an assortment of people who take about a paragraph each to define for us. The plot keeps the minutes turning... or should I say plots which just barely avoid bumping into the absurd. It all rides on a preposterous decision on the part of the vet's... buy that, and you'll probably enjoy this finely read, but forgettable time-filler. Great listening in the gym.
