The leader of the excavation is a professor called Johnson. He has some students working with him: Marek, Cris, Kate, Stern and others

This is one of the best books I've ever read. Makes you realize how lucky we are to live in our modern society
yeah, i loved this book, too. but i think it wasnt his best book though. i think, maybe out of actuality, state of fear is the book with the better topic. and prey for example was in my opinion more tensing. have you read "next"? also a great book, but not his best
Excellent book. The movie didn't do it justice.
