Synopses & Reviews
Intrigued by a series of mysterious attacks on ocean wildlife, a group of scientists stumbles upon evidence of a prehistoric manta ray that has evolved into a dangerous predator, but when they set out to study the creature, they discover that the leader of the rays has figured out how to fly and is attacking people on a remote island in the region. A first novel. Simultaneous.
A shocking biological discovery--a previously unknown predatory species evolving just like the dinosaurs. Now. Today. Being forced out of its world and into man's for a violent first encounter. Weaving science and thriller in a way not seen since Jurassic Park, Natural Selection introduces a phenomenally dangerous new species that is rapidly adapting in a way never before seen. A mystery; a chase; a vast expansive puzzle--a team of marine scientists is on the verge of making the most stunning discovery in the history of man. In their quest for answers, they engage a host of fascinating characters: the world's premier neurology expert; a specialist on animal teeth; flight simulation wizards; evolution historians; deep sea geologists; and so many more. Along the way, the team of six men and women experience love, friendship, loyalty, and betrayal. Together, they set off to exotic locale: literally to the bottom of the ocean; to a vast and mysterious redwood forest; to an unknown complex of massive caves. When people start dying, the stakes are upped even further. Then the real hunt begins... Loaded with astonishing action sequences, Natural Selection is that rare breed of thriller, filled with intricately layered research, real three-dimensional characters, and tornado pacing.
