Simon and Schuster
In the tradition of books by Michael Crichton and James Rollins, Dean Crawford has written a fast-paced and thrilling debut that combines science, suspense, and ingenious speculation to create an action-packed blockbuster not to be missed.

ARE THEY ALIENS . . . OR ANGELS? In the remote desert depths of the Middle East, archaeologist Lucy Morgan finds a seven-millennia-old tomb holding the bones of a mysterious being, but the price she pays for her discovery could easily be her life. Because somebody will stop at nothing to possess the secrets the tomb reveals.

At the request of Lucy’s family, war correspondent Ethan Warner agrees to aid a desperate effort to find the young archaeologist, who was abducted shortly after her momentous discovery. While Ethan flies to Israel, police detectives in Washington, D.C., confront another baffling crime: a man who appears to have died of hypothermia in the sweltering August heat. And both investigations are leading straight to the same shadowy corporation . . . one with a bizarre goal that threatens not just Lucy’s life, but the fate of every person in the world.

The characters are all so cardboard I had trouble turning the pages.

This is a remarkably well researched book, the author really did his homework on this novel. Interesting with expansive character development, with dual parallel plot lines converging at the end - - very nicely done by this author, and he captures a certain D.C. cop I once knew quite perfectly!

Leave it on the bookshelf. Weak characters. Plotline of obligatory action scenes for B movie.
