Take a bit of Archaelogy, add a generous dose of modern science, a pinch of man's deepest fears and blend in a believable cast of characters, and (if you're lucky) you end up with a book like "Hominid". Can't recommend this one too highly. Unfortunately for me, when I get a story like this, I attack it with literary gluttony, ending my reading banquet all too soon.
Don't open this one unless you plan on reading it non-stop.

This is a fast paced science fiction thriller based on real science and posing a number of ethical questions about
genetic manipulation and evolution. The off beat characters lighten the mood while the plot thickens. I
couldn't put it down.....

Hominid reminds me of Michael Crichton-type science fiction. I enjoy this type of novel, mystery, adventure, and mild science fiction. It was the first book I have read by John C. Boland and I will look for another. I think it was worth reading.
