The Anomaly by Michael Rutger – Book Review

e974b558-5ec7-4d1b-889f-1e1ce28db238PUBLISHERS BLURB 

An utterly gripping thriller perfect for fans of Dan Brown, Michael Crichton and Stephen King. The Anomaly will leave you breathless until the final page has been turned . . .


A team of explorers seek ancient treasures, hidden in a secret cave.

At first it seems they will return empty handed. Then their luck turns.


But the team’s elation is short-lived as they become trapped there in the dark, with little possibility of escape.

Then events take an even more terrifying turn.

For not all secrets are meant to be found . 


Nolan Moore is the ‘Star’ of The Anomaly Files, a YouTube documentary show that investigates various myths and legends, and they are on a quest to find Kincaid’s Cavern in the Grand Canyon. They only have vague directions and descriptions of the area… off they go !.

There is Ken, a smoking, drinking, old hand producer, he of the witty one liners, such as “Let it be known that I can wave my own penis around, should the need arise.”

Pierre, the handsome cameraman.

Gemma, a journalist along to document the journey in writing.

Feather, the ever cheerful tag along from the investors and Dylan the tour guide.

A rag tag group, with some great characters and the sarcastic wit between them gives some laugh out loud moments at times.

The story is, do they find Kincaid’s Cavern ? Is there a Cradle of Life ?? and are there monsters ? Oh indeed there are ……!

This is a great read, with some nice pop culture references and it feels like a mix of X-Files, Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider….it’s truly gripping with some great humour, tension, excitement and some surprises along the dark and scary way. I loved this and can thoroughly recommend it.

Thanks to Bonnier Zaffre for a free copy for an honest review
