This book is almost Jurassic Park-like. It's definitely a page turner and quite thrilling! I can't say very much without giving away the plot, but take my word for it, it's worth it for those who enjoy a fast-paced mystery.

Another good page-turner from Rollins about the nefarious genetic manipulation of DNA in animals and humans! This one reminded me a lot of some of Michael Crichton's novels such as "Next" which was also about genetic engineering and intelligent animals. I was also reminded a lot of H.G. Wells classic "Island of Dr. Moreau" - one of my Wells favorites. I really enjoyed the setting of the first part of the story in the bayous of Louisiana and would give this one a very favorable recommendation.

Nice action and storyline. Worth reading if you like James Rollins, however, if you are familiar with his other works do not expect anything that unusual from this book.

Action plus a little romance--pretty good but I don't know if I'll read Rollins again.
