Editorial Reviews

Review

“Among all Crichton’s novels, it’s one of his best, a beautifully detailed, scientifically engrossing, absolutely riveting story.” (Booklist, starred review)

“A totally unexpected flashback to the days when Crichton was central to the entertainment world.... If you like a good Crichton paleo-action story incorporating real historical figures, you’ll like this one.” (New York Times)

“Rollicking.... A page-turner.” (Wall Street Journal)

“Bears all the narrative traits of its techno-thriller ancestor, Jurassic Park. It’s a fun and diverting romp.... Dragon Teeth is filled with colorful Wild West characters... and Crichton writes vividly.” (Washington Post)

“A fast-paced page-turner that showcases Crichton’s singular ability to combine action, science, and history into one fantastic story. Fans will be thrilled, while new readers will discover what makes his books so enthralling.” (Library Journal)

Dragon Teeth isn’t ‘literary’ fiction. Plain and simple, it’s Crichton fiction — a fun, suspenseful, entertaining, well-told tale filled with plot twists, false leads and lurking danger in every cliffhanging chapter. When you’re done, you’ll wish for more.” (USA Today (four stars))

“A lean, propulsively readable adventure story, filled with seamlessly interwoven exposition and sharp dialogue. It’s easily the best thing with Michael Crichton’s name on it since 1999’s Timeline.... Linking the word ‘dinosaur’ and the name ‘Michael Crichton’ is about as sure-fire a recipe for magic as the modern publishing world can muster.” (Christian Science Monitor)

Dragon Teeth is an effective, page-turning combination of historical fact and fast-paced fiction.... A distinct pleasure to read.... [Readers will] be anxious to know if there might be more unpublished treasures waiting in the Crichton Archives to be excavated and brought forward for our reading delight.” (New York Journal of Books)

“A page-turner.” (NBC 2)

“On display... are [Crichton’s] many gifts as a popular novelist and Dragon Teeth is a gripping and entertaining read.” (Sunday Times)

From the Back Cover

NOT SINCE JURASSIC PARK HAS DIGGING UP THE PAST BEEN SO DANGEROUS

The legendary number one New York Times bestselling author returns to the world of paleontology in this recently discovered novel—a thrilling adventure set in the Wild West during the golden age of fossil hunting.

The year is 1876. Warring Indian tribes still populate America’s western territories, even as lawless gold-rush towns begin to mark the landscape. While the civilized East debates Mr. Darwin’s heretical new theory called evolution, two monomaniacal paleontologists pillage the Wild West, hunting for dinosaur fossils while surveilling, deceiving, and sabotaging each other in a rivalry that will come to be known as the Bone Wars.

Into this treacherous territory plunges the arrogant and entitled William Johnson, a Yale student with more privilege than sense. Determined to survive a summer in the West to win a bet against his archrival, William has joined world-renowned paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh on his latest expedition. But when the paranoid and secretive Marsh becomes convinced that William is spying for his nemesis, Edward Drinker Cope, he abandons him in Cheyenne, Wyoming, a locus of crime and vice.

His honor at stake, William joins forces with Cope and soon stumbles upon a discovery of historic proportions. With this extraordinary treasure, however, comes exceptional danger, and William’s newfound resilience will be tested in his struggle to protect his cache from some of the West’s most notorious and wily characters.
