About the Author:

Douglas Preston, a regular contributor to the New Yorker, has worked for the American Museum of Natural History and taught English at Princeton University. With his frequent collaborator, Lincoln Child, he has written many bestselling thrillers including Relic, which became a major motion picture, The Book of the Dead and Cemetery Dance. He is also the author of the bestselling The Codex, Tyrannosaur Canyon and Blasphemy.

Review:

"Some hopeful science fiction fans such as yours truly have begun to see Preston as the possible successor to the recently deceased Michael Crichton... Some novels you want to savor, some you want to read so quickly that you can scarcely keep yourself from tearing pages as you move forward. Preston's entertaining accomplishments tend toward the latter."
--Alan Cheuse, National Public Radio

"What this book needs is a mind eraser, one that sweeps it from your mind so that you can pick it up and read it again, new and fresh.  Yeah, it's that good.  People who enjoy a good dose of action, well-explained science and brilliant science fiction will find themselves spellbound with [Impact].  But once you read it, too bad.  It would be nice to forget it, and then read it again."
--Lincoln Journal Star

“Impact is out of this world. Simply put, Douglas Preston has crossed over into a new frontier of thriller. It is a fireball of astronomic proportion that will leave you gasping for air! So buckle up, turn off the phone, and don’t forget to breathe.”
Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Apostle

“Douglas Preston’s wildly creative novels expertly blend real science and heart-stopping thrills. He is, quite simply, the new and improved Michael Crichton.”
Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Keepsake

“A brilliantly executed thriller—exciting, fascinating, and thought-provoking. The kind of book you want to savor—and when dawn comes you realize that it has taken off like a rocket and swept you through the night. Wild and wonderful reading fun! A highly original and yet eerily plausible premise.”
Whitley Strieber, New York Times bestselling author of Critical Mass

“Brilliant . . . full of huge ideas, but intensely human, too, and intensely suspenseful.”
Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels

“Preston will have his readers checking the sky for falling objects. Impact delivers one . . . and then some!”
Sandra Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Smash Cut: A Novel

“One of our best writers and entertainers is back, so make sure that your seat belts are securely fastened and your tray tables are stowed, because—no surprise—Douglas Preston pulls it off yet again: another fast-paced, action-packed, mind-bending adventure. You’ll be sorry when the flight is over and your imagination returns you to the real world.”
William Martin, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Constitution
