Schutt is a biology professor with a rare gift for making biology dramatic. His accounts… are hair-raising… gripping and often disturbing.
“…one fascinating and bizarre example after another… a jolly book, written in a breezy style, but the research behind it is impressive… Cannibalism restores my faith in humanity.”
This one pushes the envelope to the edge and beyond, with tension and imagination that crackles from the first page. A terrific story, terrifically told.
Hell’s Gate has everything I love in a book: rip-roaring action, strange-but-authentic science, and characters that pop right off the page. An adventure that harkens to the glory days of H. Rider Haggard and H.G. Wells. Warning: Do NOT miss this debut!
…masterful and compulsively readable…
I was totally absorbed by this thoroughly charming and scientifically accurate account.
“Looks like Schutt and Finch are filling the void left by the passing of Michael Crichton.”
I truly enjoyed Hell’s Gate. My kind of book. Bill Schutt and J.R. Finch are two of the best adventure writers to come along in a long time. They blend action and science into a read that opens the door to much, much more.
