Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A moon rock missing for thirty years...

Five buckets of blood-soaked sand found in a New Mexico canyon...

A scientist with ambition enough to kill...

A monk who will redeem the world...

A dark agency with a deadly mission...

The greatest scientific discovery of all time...

What fire bolt from the galactic dark shattered the Earth eons ago, and now hides in that remote cleft in the southwest U.S. known as Tyrannosaur Canyon?

The stunning new masterwork from the acclaimed best-selling author, recently hailed by Publishers Weekly as "better than Crichton."

Review:

"At the start of this improbable thriller from bestseller Preston (The Codex), innocent bystander Tom Broadbent is riding his horse through a New Mexico canyon when he comes upon prospector Stem Weathers, who's just been shot. Before Weather dies, he gives Tom a notebook filled with mysterious numbers, asking him to pass it on to his daughter. Taking this assignment to heart, Tom puts himself and his wife at ever greater, more pointless risk as he tries to deliver the notebook. Soon the Broadbents find themselves the target of the prospector's assassin — a jailbird hired by an evil British paleontologist seeking the perfectly preserved remains of a Tyrannosaurus rex — as well as a rogue government operative who's trying, with a commandeered army squad, to kill almost everyone in the book. Lively yet ridiculous, the narrative loses all plausibility as it becomes clear that the characters do what they do solely in order to keep the plot churning to its conclusion. The recent real-life discovery of a Tyrannosaurus rex fossil containing soft tissue makes this particularly timely. Agent, Eric Simonoff at Janklow & Nesbit. $200,000 marketing campaign. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Preston's exhilarating and absorbing science-based effort will thrill readers from the first page to the last. Michael Crichton wishes he could write half as well..." Library Journal

Review:

"Preston smothers his cast under a blanket of action and contrivance, and his perfectly delicious scientific premise gets less than its due. Give him lots of credit, however, for thrills. He can write gripping escape scenes and bloody confrontations with the best of them." Booklist

Review:

"Blown away? Yes. Socks knocked off? For sure. This is the kind of a book that takes you deep into the night and will not let you go. It begins on the moon with a very real conversation between astronaut Eugene Cernan and Apollo Ground Control in 1971, and goes from there to an eerie canyon in New Mexico. Then you think you're on a contemporary treasure hunt. But Douglas Preston has a surprise for you...and it is not a small one, no, not at all. I will not forget Tyrannosaur Canyon. Nobody who reads it will, not for a long, long time." Whitley Strieber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Communion

Review:

"If John Grisham wrote Jurassic Park, he couldn't do better than Tyrannosaur Canyon." Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of Liars and Thieves

Review:

"Preston has accomplished the impossible: He has combined the cutting edge science of Michael Crichton and the thrills and chills of Stephen King to create some of the most electrifying novels of the twenty-first century. The Codex knocked our socks off. Tyrannosaur Canyon really blew us away." W. Michael and Kathleen O? Neal Gear, USA Today bestselling authors of People of the Raven

Review:

"Tyrannosaur Canyon kept me up past dawn. Preston is a little like Grisham, a little like Crichton, a little like King, but a truly unique and wonderful writer in his own write." David Hagberg, USA Today bestselling and award-winning author of Joshua's Hammer and Soldier of God

Review:

"A hair-frying, nerve-fraying, heart-stopping, pulse-pounding thriller of magnitude. Preston has always been terrific. Tyrannosaur Canyon reaches whole new dimension of thrillerdom." John Farris, Award-winning and bestselling author of Phantom Nights

Synopsis:

What fire bolt from the galactic dark shattered the Earth eons ago, and now hides in that remote cleft in the southwest U.S. known as Tyrannosaur Canyon?

Synopsis:

A stunning new archaelogical thriller by the New York Times bestselling co-author of Brimstone and Relic
