The most eagerly anticipated adventure novel of the year has arrived!
Pulitzer Prize-winning writer John Darnton is about to take you on a
fantastic journey that will make you believe the impossible.
During the most extraordinary expedition ever mounted, an eminent
paleontologist disappears, leaving behind a skull of a Neanderthal
dated to be only 25 years old! Matt Mattison and Susan Arnot, who were
once lovers and are now academic rivals, are dispatched to find the
secret their Harvard mentor was seeking: a species linked to the
origins of mankind.
