A mysterious woven metal artifact is found at a paleontological dig in Africa. Mystified experts, confounded by the impossible timeline they get from traditional dating methods, call upon a stubborn young man with a unique talent. Matthew Turner's gift is also his curse: When he touches any object, his awareness is flooded with the thoughts and feelings of those who touched it before him. It is a talent that many covet, some fear, and almost no one understands. Despite being exploited as a child and tormented by the unpleasant experiences imprinted on him from the various items he has "read", Matthew agrees to travel from New York to the forests of Kenya. There, threatened by unknown enemies and helped by a beautiful but prickly ally who begins to understand his strange ability, he journeys back in geological time to make a discovery so shocking that it forces us to rewrite all human history.

Yes. The two intertwined stories hold your interest and the concept of a far pre-historic metal working civilization opens the door to a million questions and probably future books by the author. The book is well written with interesting characters and you really can't ask for much more.
I would compare The Dig to any one of a number of Steven King or Dean Koontz books. Interesting paranormal ability are their stock in trade.
I would love to see where the author takes this concept. Hopefully he'll come up with answers to the many questions I have about this pre-historic civilization.
I can't wait for the next book!!
Yes I would! Its a great book, well written, good story, and chilling end!
The Dig keeps you caught up in its web from beginning to end! A very satisfying read!
