She had actually wondered if the ? she had seen from afar might have been somehow fake – perhaps sophisticated animatronic robots – but now that she saw this one up close, she was under no illusions. This was a living breathing beast.

I’ve read several books by Matthew Reilly and really really liked them. As for The Great Zoo Of China….I’m so excited about this book!

Take a look at the awesome cover. Read the synopsis.

What do you think is contained at the zoo?


Read on if you want to know more.



A high-concept, action-packed thriller from the bestselling author of SCARECROW AND THE ARMY OF THIEVES.

It is a secret the Chinese government has been keeping for 40 years. They have found a species of animal no one believed even existed. It will amaze the world.

Now the Chinese are ready to unveil their astonishing discovery within the greatest zoo ever constructed. A small group of VIPs and journalists has been brought to the zoo deep within China to see its fabulous creatures for the first time. Among them is Dr Cassandra Jane ‘CJ’ Cameron, a writer for NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC and an expert on reptiles.

The visitors are assured by their Chinese hosts that they will be struck with wonder at these beasts, that they are perfectly safe, and that nothing can go wrong…
