The brand new novel by Michael Crichton, being published posthumously.
The year is 1876. Warring Indian tribes still populate America’s western territories even as lawless gold-rush towns begin to mark the landscape. Against this backdrop two paleontologists pillage the Wild West for dinosaur fossils, while deceiving and sabotaging each other in a rivalry that will come to be known as the Bone Wars.
Into this treacherous territory plunges William Johnson, a Yale student with more privilege than sense. Determined to win a bet against his arch-rival, William has joined world-renowned paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh on his latest expedition. But Marsh becomes convinced that William is spying for his nemesis, Edwin Drinker Cope, and abandons him in Cheyenne, Wyoming, a locus of crime and vice.
Soon William joins forces with Cope and stumbles upon a discovery of historic proportions. The struggle to protect this extraordinary treasure, however, will test William’s newfound resilience and pit him against some of the West’s most dangerous and notorious characters…

All three films from the 'Jurassic Park' trilogy. In 'Jurassic Park' (1993) eccentric scientist John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) plans to open a theme park consisting of live dinosaurs, genetically engineered from DNA found in a preserved prehistoric mosquito. Archaeologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) are invited to view the park, along with chaos theory expert Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), only to find themselves being hunted when the dinosaurs break free. In 'The Lost World - Jurassic Park' (1997) the action takes us four years on from the events documented in the previous film, when dinosaurs have bred on the neighbouring site of Isla Sorna. Park founder John Hammond (Attenborough) gets back in touch with Ian Malcolm (Goldblum) and asks him to join his girlfriend Sarah (Julianne Moore), who is already on the island, hoping that together they might be able to explain recent events there. But they are all unaware that a rival expedition is on its way to the island with plans to capture the dinosaurs and take them back to the mainland. 'Jurassic Park 3' (2001) has Dr Alan Grant (Neill) approached by the Kirbys (William H. Macy and Tea Leoni), a wealthy couple who want a guide to escort them on a flight over Isla Sorna. Grant agrees to take the flight; but almost as soon as they are over the island, the Kirbys move the goalposts and attempt a landing. It seems their son got lost on a previous visit and the Kirbys have mounted this expedition in order to get him back; nevertheless, it's not long before a first dinosaur attack disables the plane and the rescue party finds itself stranded and at the mercy of the island's prehistoric inhabitants.
