CRO-MAGNON is an archaeological techno-thriller, 145,000 words. Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child meet Jean Auel.
Do you wish you could chuck your workaday life, travel to a mountain fastness, and engage in a mortal struggle? When Ian Calder, burned-out paleoanthropologist, and Caitlin Blaine, brain-scanning geneticist, are dragooned by a ruthless industrialist to dive on a waterlocked cave in Tajikistan, they find not only perma-frosted prehistoric bodies but also wall drawings that recount the travails, told in an interlocking story, of an outcast Cro-Magnon woman and her half-Neanderthal baby. Meanwhile the two conflicted scientists, facing imminent death, must escape into a frozen wilderness with a priceless burden.
