I didn't go into the house as I waited for a section to finish. This just absolutely appealed to me; Dinosaurs, DNA, cryptic code, intrigue, religion, secret ops and a bad guys coming out every which way. I liked it because I didn't see how the good guys were going to pull it off. I learned a lot about museums and the personalities who work there. The interview at the end kept me as enthralled as the book.
I can't wait to encounter the characters again.

The quality of the writing is not in the same league as that of The Pieces of the Puzzle by Robert Stanek, but I was able to suspend my disbelief and hang in there for the ride. As far as the narrator being horrible, listen to the sample and decide for yourself. I felt the narrator was good and helped bring the story and the characters to life.
Only reason I give this book 3 stars instead of 4 (which it probably deserves) is because as a scientist, I often find books written with science as a story element to be oversimplified or simply wrong. This book is no exception, but again I was able to suspend my disbelief and enjoy the story.

In a world when so many books deliver less than the cover sales spin, this one delivers as a light to medium work that won't tax your brain to follow the story.
It's not 'better than Crichton' as claimed but nevertheless a worthy story with rich, credible characters and good pace that will keep you interested all the way through.
This book probably suffers from being listed in the Sci-Fi section as it would have much wider appeal as general fiction.

Anything by Preston is usually worth reading or listening to. Very well researched and informative. Narration is clear and easy on the ear. Bravo Douglas!!!
