    The year is A.D. 922. A refined Arab courtier, representative of the powerful Caliph of Baghdad, encounters a party of Viking warriors who are journeying to the barbaric North.

But it is not until they reach the depths of the Northland that the courtier learns the horrifying and inescapable truth.

    Wyoming, 1875: So wie die Erde unter den donnernden Büffelherden des noch wilden Westens bebt, wird die Welt von der Entdeckung einer noch größeren, viel älteren Naturgewalt erschüttert. Fossile Funde belegen: Einst müssen riesige Urzeitwesen die Erde bevölkert haben - die Dinosaurier. Damit rückt ein wenig beachteter, aber revolutionärer Wissenschaftszweig, die Paläontologie, ins Licht der Öffentlichkeit. Der Roman "Dragon Teeth" aus dem Nachlass von Michael Crichton, entstanden 1974, darf als erster Wissenschaftsthriller dieses Ausnahmeautors und Schöpfers von "Jurassic Park" gelten.
