Tyrannosaur Canyon (2005)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
08.18.07

Tyrannosaur Canyon (2005) Author: Douglas Preston

Preston successfully combines such disparate elements as a thirty-year old lunar mission, the hunt for a prime Tyrannosaur skeleton that holds a deadly secret and the clandestine government agency that wishes to keep it that way.

It all begins with an old prospector type guy who is fatally shot out in the New Mexico desert for a map and book he is carrying. But before the killer can climb down the cliff-side and retrieve it his body is disovered by local Vet (and adventurer) Tom Broadbent. But before the old man dies he makes Broadbent promise to give the book, which contains lists of numbers, to his daughter. He makes the promise and the guy dies.

But an evil museum curator in New York City knows what those numbers will lead to - a near perfectly preserved Tyrannosaurus Rex - and he'll do anything to obtain it, even if it means sending his killer to off Broadbent and his wife.

There's lots of fights, chases and murderers. The big 'Payoff' at the end delivers and I suspect that there's another book coming that will continue the adventures of these characters. The only complaint I have is that this novel seems too much like a 'Hollywood Blockbuster movie', which I suppose is probably the author's intention anyway. I'd also like to have read more about the life of the Tyrannosaur herself, prehistoric scenes which are all too brief.
