Praise For…


Mount Dragon is as marvelously complex as any thriller I've ever read . . . . It is nothing less than a tour de force!” —Stuart Woods, author of Choke

“A delightfully gruesome yarn and an apt mirror of our love-hate relationship with science.” —Business Week

“The writing team that scared the willies out of readers with The Relic returns with a second, equally gripping novel of techno-terror . . . . It's a grand and scary story, with just enough grisly detail to stimulate real-life fears and characters full enough to engage the attention.” —Publishers Weekly

“Dynamic duo Preston and Child once again demonstrate their mastery of the genre....The thrillfest runs full force to the very last page.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Read this and you'll be panting for Preston and Child's next yarn.” —Booklist
