Review quote

Preston's exhilarating and absorbing science-based effort will thrill readers....Michael Crichton wishes he could write half as well. Preston''s exhilarating and absorbing science-based effort will thrill readers....Michael Crichton wishes he could write half as well. Preston has accomplished the impossible: he combined the cutting-edge science of Michael Crichton and the thrills and chills of Stephen King.

--W. Michael and Kathleen O' Neal Gear I would put Tyrannosaur Canyon up with the best of Michael Crichton's novels

--Lincoln Child "Raiders of the Lost Ark meets The Amazing Race! A fast-paced, clever adventure."--"Entertainment Weekly" (A-) on "The Codex"

"Preston keeps the adventure high, springing plenty of nifty surprises along the way."---"People" (3 1/2 Stars) on" The Codex"

"Fascinating characters, exotic jungle scenery, and surprising twists make this nonstop thrill ride well worth deciphering. For all fiction collections."--"Library Journal" on "The Codex"

"Preston flies high and fast . . . a briskly involving science-based thriller. Rip-roaring jungle adventure, outfitted with a nasty villain, a beautiful blonde, two memorable Indian characters, hosts of wild animals, terrific atmosphere, and cliffhangers galore. Preston delivers the goods."--"Publishers Weekly" on" The Codex"
