I agree with comment from Melbl8tr. This book is not up to the author's usual writing style but the idea for the plot was interesting, not a bad read under a hot sun and does pose an interesting ethical question about endangered spiecies.

Where do I begin? A complete mess of a book. Cardboard characters spouting ridiculous dialogue in order to move an obvious plot along to its predictable conclusion. I suppose the author was hoping for a movie deal as the whole thing is one big Hollywood cliché.
