From Booklist The latest Em Hansen mystery is by far the best yet, combining genuine suspense and a tantalizing puzzle. Hansen, a forensic geologist (in her spare time she helps police solve crimes), has been invited to speak at a paleontology conference. But things go spectacularly wrong when her host, an eccentric dinosaur expert, is murdered, and Em seems to be the most likely suspect. Andrews makes the most of her paleontological background. She clearly knows her subject-she’s a geologist by trade-and, unlike many crime writers, she does not use the surroundings merely as window dressing. The novel is, in addition to a fine mystery, a lively exploration of the high-stakes world of dinosaur research and a perceptive rumination on the debate between science and creationism. This could be Andrews’ “crossover” book: it will appeal not only to fans of the Hansen series but also to readers of such mainstream novels as Crichton’s Jurassic Park. Readers of dinosaur-related nonfiction, too, should find the book a delight. David Pitt-This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
