The year is 1876. Among the warring Indian tribes and lawless gold-rush towns of America's western territories, two paleontologists pillage the Wild West. They are 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 Yale student William Johnson. Determined to survive a summer in the west to win a bet, William has joined world-renowned paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh on his latest expedition. But Marsh becomes convinced that William is spying for his nemesis, Edwin Drinker Cope, so he abandons him in Cheyenne, Wyoming, a locus of crime and vice. Soon William joins forces with Cope and stumbles upon a discovery of historic proportions. The struggle to protect this extraordinary treasure tests William's newfound resilience, and pits him against some of the West's most dangerous and notorious characters.

A fast-paced historical novel with believable characters in a setting that I could picture as I listened. Will miss Crichton's writing. Strong readalike to Kenneth Oppel's YA novel,
Every Hidden Thing.

It's been years since I read this author & I kept thinking 'isn't this supposed to be some really good writer?" What a disappointment, I never bothered to finish.

Classic Crichton. Unadulteratedly researched, crafted and completed by him. I was worried about reading it - not being a fan of early paleontology, the wild west, or posthumously published works, but after a slightly slow beginning the novel picks up pace and does not falter or slow. As usual with Crichton, I was utterly engaged and entertained. This felt earlier in his writing career - similarities to Great Train Robbery. He really was a master storyteller with sharp imagination and an unerring dedication to facts.
