Praise for Carnosaur Crimes...
"From the wild opening scene to the ripping climax, Carnosaur Crimes packs the wallop of a T. Rex in full motion....scientific mystery at its very best." -Douglas Preston
author of Tyrannosaur Canyon and Brimstone
Montana paleoartist Ansel Phoenix is stunned to find the incinerated body of an Indian-a fossil poacher-blasted up into the mouth of her life-sized Allosaurus replica outside the Big Toe Natural History Museum. Someone has been cutting out fossil Carnosaur tracks along the Red Water River, and the Bureau of Land Management is threatening to close the museum and move the exhibits to an educational institution. And now the FBI investigation of the man's fatal accident, triggered by the explosion of a faulty valve on his propane-powered concrete saw, is freezing out the local cops.
Who is the dead poacher? And who wanted him dead?
Using her half-Blackfoot heritage as leverage, Ansel devises a dangerous scheme to help uncover a statewide ring of dinosaur thieves. But she didn't count on complications from big-money commercial dealers in fossils. Or being stalked by a deadly nemesis from her childhood....
