    " Another exciting and enjoyable action adventure from Preston (writing without Lincoln Child). This is a sequel of sorts to The Codex which I recently read and really enjoyed. This one was just as good - following up on an adventure featuring the protagonist of Codex - Tom Broadbent (who is now driving a classic '57 Chevy pickup). Broadbent happens on to a murdered dinosaur hunter in the canyons of New Mexico who evidently has made a great discovery. Part of the mystery is just what the prospector has discovered. It piques the interests of a museum curator, a dark government agency, as well as local law enforcement. A super page-turner with a tribute to Michael Crichton and Jurassic Park! "

    " fast, preposterous, trashy, fantastic fun - sort of 'X Files' with dinosaurs. this is the first book by this author that I've read, and I'm looking forward to more... it was ideal holiday reading "

    " Kind of a sequal to The Codex. (Continuation of characters). While exciting and an enjoyable read, not up to par with its predecessor. "

    " If you read The Codex, another novel by Preston, you'll recognize the character Tom Broadbent. He is now married to Sally Colorado (who I really wanted to slap in the Codex) and even though he's inherited millions from his dad, he and Sally are living a very simple life out in the desert of New Mexico. He's still a vet along with his partner Shane; nothing much has really changed since he made it back to New Mexico from the jungle. Out on a ride one day in the desert near Tyrannosaur Canyon, Tom hears shots and stumbles in on a dying man. He tries to help him but just before he dies, the man gives him a notebook, making him swear he'll give it to his daughter. Tom agrees; he then leaves and brings the police back to the spot some hours later. The police find nothing, and think Tom's gone crazy until they ultimately find a lot of blood in the sand. Tom sort of forgets to tell the cops he's got the notebook, and they know he's holding something back. Anyway, Tom looks at the notebook, trying to figure out who the guy was and who his daughter is, and realizes it's written in some kind of code. He also remembers that there is an ex-CIA man who is living in a nearby monastery who has expertise in codebreaking and ultimately convinces him to crack the code. Without spoiling the story (it's in the dust jacket), Tom and the CIA guy (Wyman Ford) discover that the dead man had located a perfectly fossilized T-Rex. This gives Tom a way to look for the man's identity and thus his daughter. However, while Tom is trying to find the daughter, someone's after Tom -- the killer of the dead man who realizes that Tom must have the notebook. There could be room for a series featuring Tom and Wyman here (hint, hint) There are a few really good suspense moments in this story, and the story is good really up until the very end where I groaned with the introduction of Masago (I won't say who this is) and his quest. That was the point where I thought that the author should have gone elsewhere with the story rather than where he went. But what the hell. As I said, it was a fun read, and as it turns out, neither stunning nor a flop. "
