The Relic by Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston

Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human...
But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders.
Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who--or what--is doing the killing. But can she do it in time to stop the massacre (from the publisher)?
This book is the first of many written by the authors. Many of the characters, and in particular FBI Special Agent Pendergast, frequent their other books. There is something about these books that successfully draws you in, keeps you guessing until the final twist. There is an element of sci-fi - it is a monster, of sorts, that is killing people, and the story just seems to work!
Rating - I give this 4.5/5 GREAT!!
Get this from the library
