Nests of pterodactyls, hordes of iguanadons, swarms of plesiosaurs still roaming the earth in the twentieth century? Professor Challenger says yes and to prove it he leads an expedition into the deepest jungles of South America. Together, the men--a young journalist, an adventurer, and an aristocrat--along with their bearers and guides, search for the rumored country and encounter savagery, hardship, and betrayal on the way. But things only get worse as they get closer to the hidden world they seek. Trapped on an isolated plateau, menaced by hungry carnosaurs, it begins to look as though the expedition will never return from ...The Lost World.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

Lancashire Evening Post

If you haven’t already guessed, Conan Doyle’s The Lost World was the inspiration for Barlow and Skidmore’s cliff-hanging thriller which has the added dimension of being set in the dark and shadowy 1930s when the world was teetering on the verge of another war.
