It is a secret the Chinese government has been keeping for forty years. They have found a species of animal no one believed even existed.
The Chinese are ready to unveil their fabulous creatures in the greatest zoo ever constructed. VIPs and journalists, including reptile expert Dr Cassandra Jane 'CJ' Cameron, are invited to see the beasts for the first time.
The visitors are assured by their Chinese hosts that they are perfectly safe, that nothing can go wrong.
Of course it can't...
Fans of Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton will love Matthew Reilly.
