"Looks like Schutt and Finch are filling the void
left by the passing of Michael Crichton."--James Cameron,
In the wake of World War II, zoologist and adventurer
Captain R. J. MacCready is sent to the frozen mountain
valleys of Tibet to find a creature of legend that may hold
the secret to humankind’s evolutionary future—or the key to
its extinction—in this explosive follow-up to Hell’s Gate.
It is 1946, and the world is beginning to rebuild from the
ashes of the devastating war. Marked by the perilous
discoveries he encountered in the wilds of Brazil, Captain
R. J. MacCready has a new assignment on the other side of
the globe—a mission that may help him put the jungle’s
horrors behind him. He is headed for the Himalayas, to
examine some recently discovered mammoth bones.
Arriving in Asia, Mac learns the bones are only a cover
story. He’s really there to investigate an ancient codex
allegedly written by Pliny the Elder, a fascinating text
filled with explosive secrets. The Roman naturalist claimed
to have discovered a new race of humans, a divergent species
that inspired the myth of the Yeti and is rumored to have
the ability to accelerate the process of evolution. If
Pliny’s assertions are true, this seemingly supernatural
ability holds unlimited potential benefits—and unlimited
potential for destruction.
Charged with uncovering more about this miracle species, Mac
sets off into the remote mountain valleys of Tibet, using
the codex as his guide. But the freezing climate and
treacherous terrain are only the beginning of the dangers
facing him. He must also contend with the brutal Chinese
army and a species of native creature even the Yeti seem to
fear. The deeper he plunges into the unknown, the more
certain it appears that Mac and the associates who join his
odyssey may not make it out alive.
Combining plausible science, history, and action-packed
thrills, The Himalayan Codex is a page-turning adventure
sure to enthrall fans of James Rollins, Michael Crichton,
Dan Brown, and Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.
