Relic is by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child. The opening book in the Pendergast series. The New York Museum of Natural History is getting read to open a new exhibit. Days before the important exhibit is set to open two young boys are found murdered, or perhaps slaughtered would be a better word. Then policemen, guards, and other museum employees begin to be found dead. Autopsies show the killer isn't human, but what is it? FBI Agent Pendergast is sent to the Museum to head up the investigation. Can Pendergast and Museum researcher Margo Green solve the mystery of the deadly killer in time to save the museum and themselves? A great tale of horror and science fiction, much better than Crichton's Jurassic Park.
