New York: TOR / Tom Doherty Associates, (1995.) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The first novel written in collaboration by these two writers - a 'page-turner' in the truest sense of the word. Although the dust jacket refers to this as "Alien meets Jurassic Park in New York City," Preston worked for several years at this novel's setting - the Museum of Natural History in New York - and thus has a true "insider's" knowledge of the museum. Just days before a huge exhibition is about to open, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who, or what, is doing the killing and do it in time to stop the massacre. Basis for the 1997 film of the same title starring Tom Sizemore. SIGNED on the title page by Douglas Preston. 382 pp. ISBN: 0-31285630X.
