    I honestly thought it was just going to be some cheesy, childish

    I honestly thought it was just going to be some cheesy, childish story but i was pleasantly surprised by it. Being a dino fan since a child, I found it rather intriguing, and it also makes me wonder about what might life be like if dinosaurs still existed. There are parts that are really weird and make you say, "What?" but overall it was a creative and interesting read.

    "Rex"-ercise Your Brain

    What fun to combine sci-fi and mystery in one GREAT book! My jaw dropped as I started reading and stayed that way. Don't you just love a great new idea? Sometimes we get lucky. There are two books in this series so far, and I hope there are many more!

    Weird, satirical, and amusing

    What happened to the dinosaurs is quite simply, nothing. They never became extinct. Instead, they blended in with the faster growing ¿hairless ape¿ population. Today, dinosaurs keep the species in the closet, but take professional jobs like humans do. <P> For instance, Vincent Rubio, a Velociraptor hides his tail with latex, works as a private eye. Currently, Vincent struggles to make a living since the suspicious death of his partner Ernie Watson. Vincent investigates a minor arson incident at the Evolution Club that left a straight human dead. If he can stay away from the addicting basil long enough to follow the clues, Vincent might solve the mystery behind Ernie¿s death that happens to be tied to his present case. <P> Weird, satirical, and amusing ¿ absolutely! However, what makes ANONYMOUS REX superb is not the insider puns or jokes, nor the comic book like heroics, or even the cleverly developed Vincent the Raptor. Those are prime elements in a well-written novel that will appeal to the mystery and science fiction crowds. However, the key to the tale is that author Eric Garcia does all this while paying homage to the private sleuth sub-genre. Readers get a different type of hero living in a different type of world inside a narrative loaded with amusement, winks, and irony all wrapped within a fabulous investigative tale or is that tail? <P>Harriet Klausner
