Finally, the world makes sense. Dinosaurs aren't extinct, as we all thought. Instead they evolved, became smaller and smarter, and now walk among us in intricately designed latex suits. Eric Garcia's third "Rex" mystery novel tracks these humorous and appealing beings through the misadventures of private investigator Vincent Rubio, a recovering herb-aholic. Reader Jonathan Marosz leads listeners on a safari through a concrete jungle in which warring "Dino" mafia members find no honor in the use of guns and instead fight tooth and claw for domination. Garcia satirizes both vintage detective novel and film noir clichés in this delightfully bizarre world. You'll have fun too. R.O. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
