Dallas Tanner was born in 1956, at the stroke of midnight during the worst storm of the century to that date, in the seacoast township of North Kingston, Rhode Island. The eldest child of a career naval officer, he attended 9 schools in 12 years, as they moved about the country. His interest in local myths, legends and all things paranormal grew out of the ever-changing diversity of his upbringing.
His first novel, “Shadow of the Thunderbird”, was required reading at a large technical college in South Carolina. He has frequently lectured, appeared on radio and television shows, and presented at conferences on his books and interest in cryptozoology. He is often cited in the media as an expert on unknown or unexpected animals. He was instrumental in salvaging Dan Taylor’s Nessie chaser mini-subs, the Viperfish and the Nessa II, and is currently pursuing an interest in fossil diving.
When he isn’t exploring remote locations such as the Altamaha River, Mt. St. Helens or Loch Ness, Tanner is content to write novels under the watchful eye of Samwise, the longhaired Maine Coon that sleeps atop his monitor. Dallas now lives in Greenville, SC, with his wife Carla and their five children, where he is at work on his latest project.

I read the commentary, liked the story and prepared for a reading feast. Sadly, I still haven't finished this book and I doubt I ever will. It's drawn out and the characters don't conform with their backgrounds, i.e. Nate Archer Phd, acts like a twit with a memory block half the time. The other main character, a Pathologist/Coroner just cracked me up with her intense interest in the Turin Shroud and the amount of historical detail that she had absorbed during the period of her interest....maybe she should have been the Phd!!!!
The references to Dan Brown and the Da Vinci Code are nonsensical. The story line is utterly unbelievable and now I'm looking for something else to read instead. What a waste of a few dollars.
