"Dynamic duo Preston and Child once again demonstrate their mastery of the genre...The thrillfest runs full force to the very last page."
Kirkus Reviews

"Mount Dragon is as marvelously complex as any thriller I've ever read...it is nothing less than a tour de force."
Stuart Woods

"First rate entertainment...Imagine a Michael Crichton-style thriller with immensely more detail paid to the level of writing...Preston and Child weave in plenty of soberly provocative discussion of the ethics of screwing around with human genetics...First class storytellers and stimulating entertainers."
Locus

"A chilling, fabulous trip through cyberspace, flight and survival on the searing desert, high-tech wonders that defy belief--all these elements and more combine for an evening's worth of heart-stopping entertainment. A year ago, it seemed difficult, if not impossible, for these two guys to top their first novel. After I finished flipping the pages of this one and my near cardiac arrest had been averted, one clear impression lingered. Brother, was I mistaken."
Tampa Tribune-Times

"The writing team that scared the willies out of readers with The Relic returns with a second, equally gripping novel of techno-terror...It's a grand and scary story, with just enough grisly detail to stimulate real-life fears and characters full enough to engage the attention."
Publishers Weekly

"Read this and you'll be panting for Preston and Child's next yarn."
Booklist

"A delightfully gruesome yarn and an apt mirror of our love-hate relationship with science."
Business Week

"A slam-bang medical thriller, swift, gruesome, and wickedly clever."
Richard Preston, author of The Hot Zone

"Mount Dragon is a powerful, fast-paced story, with a cast of interesting characters."
San Francisco Examiner

"The Hot Zone meets The Stand...Explosive."
Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Jack Anderson
