More About the Author

Thomas P Hopp writes mystery and science fiction stories. He was born in Seattle, Washington, and lived his earliest years in a housing project on the banks of the Duwamish River. Despite a tough start in life, good grades at the University of Washington and a perfect score on the Graduate Record Exam got him into Cornell University Medical College. Discoverer of powerful immune system hormones, he helped found the multi-billion-dollar Seattle biotechnology company, Immunex Corporation, and contributed to their creation of the blockbuster arthritis drug, Enbrel.

His Peyton McKean mysteries follow a super-intelligent sleuth he bills as "The Greatest Mind Since Sherlock Holmes." Like the author himself, Dr. McKean isn't a user of DNA tests as much as an inventor of DNA tests. Dr. McKean is summoned when other investigators at a crime scene have failed. As often as not, his own life is in jeopardy before the drama plays out. Viruses, microbes, and evil geniuses form the core of his opposition. Not only must Dr. McKean carry off feats of intellectual power, but acts of daring that challenge the record of James Bond. The action is non-stop, whether at the lab bench or in a horseback chase in a hail of bullets.

Hopp's Dinosaur Wars science fiction books have been described as "Star Wars meets Jurassic Park." Filled with action and adventure, these stories follow Yellowstone Park naturalist Chase Armstrong and Montana rancher's daughter Kit Daniels in their struggle to survive an invasion of intelligent dinosaurs returning from space. The invaders have come to reclaim their home world, bringing all the other huge beasts of the past with them! Savvy science fiction, and enjoyable reading for all age groups.

Format: Paperback
When I recieved this item, it literally only took me about 3 days to read it because it just kept drawing me in, kept enticing me to read more to find out what happens next. The characters are well thought-out, and the story itself is detailed and yet easy to read. I have read this and the original and loved them both. I am particularly fascinated by how the author is able to write down an explaination for the return of the dinosaurs in a believable and well-executed manner. There isn't enough I can say about these two books. I recommend them to anyone who loves dinosaurs, sci-fi, or just a good book in general.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Gar Thekra on April 19, 2002
Format: Paperback
I am rapidly becoming a big fan of Thomas Hopp's writing. Dinosaur Wars Counterattack is another good old fashioned adventure story, just like the first book. Hopp has a way with characters. The hero and heroine, Chase and Kit, are two young people I want to spend more time with. They seem to get into the toughest spots with dinosaurs, then somehow come out alive. This is really a page turner, just like before.
The dinosaurs in this book are extremely realistic, with great pains taken to "flesh them out" in detail, while not detracting from a rapid-fire plot. I was not aware that many dinosaurs had feathers or fur on them, until reading these books. So long scaly lizards, here come the warm blooded, seriously hungry dinos.
While the beasts eat their share of humans, this book is definitely rated G, because there is nothing a younger reader would need to feel squeemish about. There are no "adult" situations beyond a little kissy-face, and, as I found out, there is a refreshing lack of profane language. Hopp seems intent on making his characters fine, upstanding people, generating excitement by casting them into desperate circumstances. Works for me.
As I did with Dinosaur Wars, I give this novel my wholehearted endorsement. It is an undiscovered gem and someday I predict: a major motion picture.
