About this title

Synopsis:

They come from prehistory to stalk and kill...

It begins, as terror so often does, with a disappearance-two men lost in the foothills of the Santa Ynez mountains, a pair of backpacks the only evidence that they'd been near the mysterious sinkhole. An ancient fissure has been jolted in the hills; the eternal geologic movements of the earth oblivious to the teeming metropolis of Los Angeles sprawled out below them.

Something is descending, stalking at night, moving ever closer to civilization. The official response to death is more destruction-Sheriff Malcolm Gearhart wants to destroy the creatures before anyone is even sure what they are, to annihilate any beast that would dare to attack man. But anthropologist Jim Grand and local newspaperwoman Hannah Hughes see another way-a dangerous path, but one that might save the last link to a prehistoric time.

And as the humans battle to steer the right course, the cats are getting closer....

From the Back Cover:

The two luminescent eyes watched the long, deserted roadway from low on the gusty promontory. Moist and dark, like large oily pearls, the eyes shifted and widened almost imperceptibly at every movement a hundred feet below. They roamed among the dim lights and deep shadows, the tall waves of the sea beyond, the dark beach, the large sea animals that broke the surface in the distance, the night birds that soared and hovered above the rocks, the flat clouds, the misty raindrops, the signposts rattling in the wind.

Most of these things were familiar; a few were not. But new or old, it was a world of constant movement, a world where any motion could be enemy or prey. Which was why the eyes missed nothing. Nor did the ears, which were shaped like gold tulip petals...

It froze as the scent came suddenly, from the north...The black eyes were met by other black eyes and they all began to move...Quickly and silently they slid through the brush and stones...commanding the foothills simply by moving through them. The smell of the prey was different, the speed was greater than they had seen, but the size was familiar.

They knew just what to do.
