it was ok
Read from November 21 to 25, 2011

This book was very amateurish. First of all, the main character was not believable. He's a failed detective from LA transplanted to Montana. But he seems so simplistic, you can't believe he would reach any level over patrolman. The author clearly loves dinosaurs, but his exposition of a dinosaur dig is way too lengthy and has little to do with the plot.... which is so convoluted that it's truly a stretch. Nice discussions of Montana countryside and weather, but it will be a long time before I consider reading another book from this author.
