Deadly Memory (Paperback)
"Walton has brought hard sci-fi roaring back to life." -WALL STREET JOURNAL
THE PAST TURNS DEADLY in this sequel to the globe-spanning paleontology thriller Living Memory. Ancient genetic technology drives world politics as China and the US vie for the power contained in Thailand's fossil deposits. Deep in an underground CIA facility, Samira studies an unprecedented find but fears her discoveries will be used as a weapon. Meanwhile, from the depths of the ocean, a killer organism surfaces that hasn't been seen in two hundred and fifty million years. Will world powers share what they know in time to save humanity?
"The literary heir of Michael Crichton. LIVING MEMORY packs an exciting thriller with intriguing science." -Craig DiLouie, author of THE CHILDREN OF RED PEAK
"Walton brings rich detail to the concept of scientifically adept dinosaurs who recorded their memories for posterity on the eve of their extinction and keeps the modern timeline just as gripping with tense geopolitics, smugglers, and resurrected mammoths and dodos. Readers will be hooked." -Publishers Weekly
"Living Memory is first-rate hard science fiction. Michael Crichton would approve and so do I. Highly recommended " - The Internet Review of Books
"David Walton is one of our very best writers of science-fiction thrillers." -Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Quantum Night
