Behemoth by Jonathan C. Leicht
This book was interesting. Jim is having problems on the reserve he heads in Africa. Some large animals are being killed and there are few clues and the ones there are, don't make much sense. Professor Gregory has lost his teaching position because of his radical beliefs. He is determined to prove his theories true so he travels to Africa to do it. The big question in both stories is, are dinosaurs alive today?
Honestly, I liked the mix of religion and science fiction but the religion portion was a bit heavy at times. The characters were interesting and kept my attention. I liked the premis of the book but I guess just expected a bit more. The two story lines that we switch back and forth to are intriguing. If the author does another book, I'll read it just because he has some good ideas.
This book is a 3/5. It was ok.
