Review:

An exciting novel that will do for pre-historic man what Jurassic Park did for Tyrannosaurus Rex.

From the Inside Flap:

They possess powers humans cannot even imagine.

They have existed for over 40,000 years.

And they are about to alter the face of civilization forever.

Far away, in the mountains of Northern Asia, a guerilla fighter vanishes, a schoolgirl is murdered, and an eminent Harvard paleontologist disappears. To a shadowy government agency in Maryland, these are all signs that something has gone terribly wrong with the most extraordinary expedition ever mounted. Matt Mattison and Susan Arnot, once lovers and now academic rivals, are dispatched to find the secret their Harvard mentor was seeking -- a species linked to the origins of mankind.

In the most eagerly anticipated adventure novel of the year, Pulitzer Prize -- winning author John Darnton takes you on a fantastic journey that will make you believe the impossible. Neanderthal combines breathtaking suspense, thorough scientific research, and dazzling storytelling as archaeologists and rival governments attempt to track down a relic band of creatures.

Neanderthal. Their time has come.

Jay O. Sanders has appeared in the films JFK, Meeting Venus, and Angels in the Outfield. He has previously read Tom Clancy's Op Center: Mirror Image for Random House AudioBooks.
