Dragon Teeth – Michael Crichton

If you’re expecting speculative sci-fi along the lines of Jurassic Park, Timeline or Prey – the usual Crichton thrill-a-minute action with snappy dialogue, well-drawn characters and a frisson of romance – this book may disappoint you.

Razor Girl – Carl Hiaasen 

A fun, if ultimately frustrating read, Razor Girl is the sequel to Bad Monkey, which introduced disgraced police detective Andrew Yancy.
