“Amateur archaeologists, a hidden cave in the Grand Canyon, strange artifacts and unspeakable horrors that defy the imagination; Rutger’s debut has all the trappings of a suspense-filled page-turner we can’t wait to read.”
Host of The Anomaly Files, Nolan Moore, is on the hunt for a decades-old conspiracy at the Grand Canyon. With a TV crew, they attempt to find a hidden cave within the canyon, fueled by tales of ancient treasures. Just as they are about return home without even a hint of treasure, their lucks turns, and the cave is found.
But some things aren’t meant to be found.
Inside the cave, they discover strange artifacts … a major find. But they also find themselves trapped inside the cave, with no way to escape. Things begin to turn more sinister by the second as time is running out.
Why we’re excited about this book:
When early reviews say The Anomaly is ‘… like Michael Crichton had written The Descent.’ (Martyn Waites, author of Bone Machine and Speak No Evil), that definitely gets our ears perked. Amateur archaeologists, a hidden cave in the Grand Canyon, strange artifacts and unspeakable horrors that defy the imagination; Rutger’s debut has all the trappings of a suspense-filled page-turner we can’t wait to read. Releasing 21 June 2018 from Zaffre Publishing, The Anomaly by Michael Rutger is available for pre-order right now.
