REVIEWS

Praise for Mount Dragon

"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
