When a Harvard paleontologist disappears in the mountains of northern Asia, Matt Mattison and Susan Arnot--former lovers who are now academic rivals--set out to find their mentor and a species of humans who have existed for over forty thousand years

Blackwell North Amer
In the mountains of northern Asia, a guerrilla 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, who were once lovers and are now academic rivals, are dispatched to find the secret their Harvard mentor was seeking: a species linked to the origins of mankind.
They have existed for over forty thousand years.
They possess powers man cannot even imagine.
And in a world dominated by humans, they are about to alter the face of civilization forever.
John Darnton combines breathtaking suspense, thorough scientific research, and dazzling storytelling as archaeologists and rival governments attempt to track down a relic band of creatures.
