Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Modern-day China not only wants to dominate the financial markets but the leisure world too. They want something bigger and better than Disneyworld and so the Great Zoo is born. After 40 years of development it is ready to be unveiled to the world and dignitaries from all over are invited to view the wonders. It is a sort of Jurassic Park for Dragons. Naturally things go very wrong and folk are attacked. You are then bounced from crisis to crisis with narrow escape after narrow escape from impossible situations through to an extraordinary ending which will leave you breathless!

If you like Matthew Reilly you might also like to read books by Tom Clancy, David Rollins and Clive Cussler.

Synopsis

The Great Zoo of China by Matthew Reilly

It is a secret the Chinese government has been keeping for 40 years. They have found a species of animal no one believed even existed. It will amaze the world. Now the Chinese are ready to unveil their astonishing discovery within the greatest zoo ever constructed. A small group of VIPs and journalists has been brought to the zoo deep within China to see its fabulous creatures for the first time. Among them is Dr Cassandra Jane 'CJ' Cameron, a writer for NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC and an expert on reptiles. The visitors are assured by their Chinese hosts that they will be struck with wonder at these beasts, that they are perfectly safe, and that nothing can go wrong...GET READY FOR ACTION ON A GIGANTIC SCALE

About the Author

Matthew Reilly

Matthew Reilly wrote his first book, CONTEST, in 1994 whilst attending the University of New South Wales. It was rejected by every major publishing company. This caused Reilly to self-publish 1,000 copies using money borrowed from his family. Reilly went to a bookstore in Sydney and asked if he could place the copies on one of their book shelves. They accepted the offer . Very shortly after, the books had sold out and the owner of the bookstore called Reilly to order more books. One copy was read by Pan Macmillan, who immediately signed Reilly up to write ICE STATION, which became an international bestseller. Since then, he has been published in over fifteen countries, including Norway, Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, The Netherlands, South Africa, Japan and China. Reilly's main influences include Michael Crichton, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and possibly Art Bell.
