Scott Sowers's superb use of accents and inflections allows this archaeological thriller, a sort of Mexican JURASSIC PARK, to flow smoothly and blend a diverse collection of details: the Chicxulub impact, the 1972 Apollo moon landing, an evil British paleontologist, an ex-CIA cryptologist now a Benedictine monk, a crusty prospector, a horse vet, and computers that run on Stutterlogic. Sowers's narration of a dry and ironic pathologist talking to a local policeman as if she were talking to an idiot is masterful. The descriptions of T. rex, which begin each new section, are compelling and awe-inspiring. K.A.T. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
