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

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, award-winning and USA Today bestselling author of Joshua's Hammer and Soldier of God

“A hair-frying, nerve-fraying, heart-stopping, pulse-pounding thriller of the first magnitude. Preston has always been terrific, but Tyrannosaur Canyon reaches whole new dimensions of thrillerdom.”—John Farris, award-winning and bestselling author of Phantom Nights
