Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In an ice cave high on a forbidden Himalayan mountaintop, renegade climber Jack Furness unearths a perfectly preserved skull, a fossil that may be the missing link and the scientific discovery of the century. To Berkeley paleoanthropologist Stella Swift, the miraculous find warrants an immediate expedition up the mountain's treacherous Fish Tail Peak. But with neighboring Pakistan and India on the brink of nuclear catastrophe, the Pentagon and the GA have their own designs on the remote site. Now, they're all about to enter a domain where one of nature's fiercest creations has thrived for millions of years — and modern man was never meant to be.

Synopsis:

When a climber finds a preserved skull on a Himalayan mountaintop, it sets off a stunning exploration into the depths of evolution — and a place where modern man was never meant to be.
