Smoothly mixes Indians Jones-style adventure with X-Files spookiness! A gripping story.
I have some mixed feelings about this novel, but it does meet my #1 criteria of being entertaining. The author is obviously a little bit of a novice, but I think this is his first effort. His future stories should be great.
The novel boasts one of the most extensive bibliographies I have ever seen in support of a novel and leads me to think he was not very far past his college years when he wrote it.
There are echos of 'Almost Adam' (Petru Popescu), 'Saucer' (Stephen Coonts), and 'Tyrannosaur Canyon' (Douglas Preston). It will offend some Creationists, some Intelligent Design proponents, most Darwin adherents, and all who fervently take their religion straight with no ice and no mixer. I will not give away any more of the story than I have already, but leave that discovery to the reader.
Having said all of that, I would rate the story as excellent, very entertaining, and worthy of your time in reading it. Good job. Well done!
Deep in Africa, an international team of paleontologists is in search of the key to mankind's past. They're after bones. Ancient human bones. But what they'll find will change the course of history.
At stake is nothing less than the final piece in the evolutionary puzzle, a prize that will confer instant immortality upon its discoverer. With the answer to this riddle comes technology so advanced that the future of the human race cannot go unchanged. For the long-sought missing link that made the leap from ape to man may have been stranger than we'd ever imagine.
Fast-paced and provocative, this is a thriller that races the heart and challenges the mind.
Where's the adjective wheel? Spin it! FANTASMAGORICAL !!!, yeah, that's the word I was looking for!
This little GEM will give you more enjoyment than a 45 CD rendition of War & Peace.
The premise of the story is in the details tab of the posting, so I won't waste your time repeating it here. All I will say is, that this audio will get that old "gray matter" between your ears to start producing huge amounts of those pleasure invoking endorphines, and you'll be glad you requested it!
This little audio is something like if you had Indiana Jones bump into Michael Crichton and both of them sat down and collaborated on a new story!
I do ramble a lot if I'm really into a book - I think you'll like it, and if you don't, you don't have to spend hours finding out - cuz it isn't not that long!
In a tine cave in Centarl Africa, paleoanthropologist Samantha Colby has discovered the skeleton of what might be the long-sought missing link between ape and man.
