This is the perfect example of a good, classic thriller. It has great characters, a unique plot, and lots of action. The only bad thing? You might lose some sleep because you won't want to stop reading.

This is a great thriller -- it's kind of like Michael Crichton's best work, but in my opinion the writing overall is better and the characters are more interesting. It's hard to beat the Natural History Museum in New York as far as creepy settings go, too.
