Erebus Resort, occupying a magnificent, hundred-thousand acre valley deep in the Colorado Rockies, offers guests the experience of viewing woolly mammoths, Irish Elk, and giant ground sloths in their native habitat, brought back from extinction through the magic of genetic manipulation. When a billionaire's son and his new wife are kidnapped and murdered in the Erebus back country by what is assumed to be a gang of eco-terrorists, Colorado Bureau of Investigation Agent Frances Cash partners with county sheriff James Colcord to track down the perpetrators.  As killings mount and the valley is evacuated, Cash and Colcord must confront an ancient, intelligent, and malevolent presence at Erebus, bent not on resurrection—but extinction.

  “One of the most heart-stopping, terrifying climaxes of any novel I've read in recent years. Preston ingeniously combines real-life science and technology into his novels, and Extinction brings it all together in a thriller that's truly thrilling!” —Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Spy Coast  “As with all of Preston's work, Extinction is clever, fast, and one hell of a good read. But most of all, it's smart. As anthropologists who write in this this genre, we consider Extinction outstanding. We raced through it and couldn't wait to find out what would happen next!” —Kathleen O'Neal Gear, New York Times bestselling author of The Ice Orphan, W. Michael Gear, New York Times bestselling author of Dissolution and co-authors of the New York Times-bestselling People of the Earth series
