Industry Reviews

Spellbinding. * Kirkus Reviews * Chilling...Preston and Child continue to redefine 'page-turner. * Denver Rocky Mountain News * Exciting, well-conceived, and well-oiled...a rip-snorter for lovers of adventure stories, with more than a touch of evil. * Toronto Star * A novel of considerable scope and interest.... Grounded in science but flirting with the supernatural, Preston and Child have created a highly readable tale of adventure and long-ago crimes. * Dallas Morning News *

Douglas Preston

About the Author

Douglas Preston was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1956, and grew up in the deadly boring suburb of Wellesley.

His first job was as an editor at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. His stint at the museum resulted in his first nonfiction book, Dinosaurs in the Attic, as well as his first novel, Relic, co-authored with Lincoln Child, which was made into a movie by Paramount Pictures. Relic was followed by a string of other thrillers co-written with Child, many featuring eccentric FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast.

Preston spends his free time riding horses in New Mexico and gunkholing around the Maine coast in an old lobster boat. He counts in his ancestry the poet Emily Dickinson, the newspaperman Horace Greeley, and the infamous murderer and opium addict Amasa Greenough.
