I loved this book because of the story line of the yeti. It was very suspensful and had a great ending. I recommend this book for people who like this type of mystery.

In an ice cave high in the Himalayas, a perfectly preserved skull is found. A fossil from a long-ago era, it is neither ape nor man. And, in a lab on the Berkley campus, a paleoanthropologist learns that what she took to be a fossil find of the first order is in fact the scientific discovery of a lifetime - proof of an alternative line of hominid development. Philip Kerr spins a tale of high adventure in which science, politics & human frilty combine to take us on a stunning foray into the nature of man.
