The Dig (Book 1 of the Matt Turner Series)

no. 1, Matt Turner - Matt Turner, no. 1

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

A mysterious woven metal artifact is found at a paleontological dig in Africa. Mystified experts, confounded by the impossible timeline they get from traditional dating methods, call upon a stubborn young man with a unique talent. Matthew Turner's gift is also his curse: Whenever he touches an object, his awareness is flooded with the thoughts and feelings of those who touched it before him. It's a talent that many covet, some fear, and almost no one understands.

Despite being exploited as a child and tormented by the unpleasant experiences imprinted on him from the various items he has "read," Matthew agrees to travel from New York to the forests of Kenya. There, threatened by unknown enemies and helped by a beautiful but prickly ally who begins to understand his strange ability, he journeys back in geological time to make a discovery so shocking that it forces us to rewrite all human history.

Customer Reviews

Fascinating concept and very well written

This is the first book by this author and I really was not aware that it was. The story of Matt Turner having an extraordinary gift is both astonishing and depressing. He wants to help with archaeology and "carbon" dating objects, but he also dislikes what it does to him. He also hates that he can't touch anything without seeing it's history.

This story was superbly written and I could not put it down. It was a very gripping read and I really got into the story. I was so impressed with the writing and liked the story so much that I told my husband (who almost never reads) that he should read it. He finally did (probably to shut me up) and he was actually happy he listened to me. The book does end in a cliffhanger so beware but I wouldn't let that deter you from reading it. You won't be sorry.

Good read. Compelling and hard to put down.

I couldn't put it down and finished it in two days. A fascinating story.
