A bold vision by a determined billionaire to introduce an energy efficient resort and revive a unique form of Lion Country safari aka Ngala (meaning lion) Prehistoric Nature Reserve in America’s own backyard reaches fruition. A plethora of extinct prehistoric species including the American Lion, (Panther Atrox), American Cheetah (Miracinonyx Inexpectatus), giant deer (Megaloceros) and many more critters that roamed the plains of North America tens of thousands of years ago goes awry. The genetically engineered creatures, resurrected from fragments of DNA including extinct Caspian Tiger, Saber Tooth (Smilodon fatalis) etc. to fill in the gaps escape from their enclosures at the CARE (Center for Animal Research and Education) facility, and go on a terrifying feeding frenzy of all indigenous species; American Bison, Camel, Giraffe, Saber Toothed Squirrels, etc even the female form of the well heeled two legged Cougar Californicus which came to Lion Island (Santa Cruz), the largest of the Channel Islands, a biodiverse Galapagos of North America, only 3 hours from Ventura, California. Prey for the overwhelmed, out numbered, out gunned but not out smarted hunters in the ensuing chaos, intent on wiping the ferocious beasts off the face of the planet. Will the genetically engineered hybrid creatures be forced to flee the island as the original inhabitants, the Chumash Native American Indians were ages ago and find a new home? An amalgamation of The Ghost and the Darkness, Avatar and Jurassic World.

Dr Bernie Unrau

The author, Bernie Unrau, an implant dentist by training, stumbled across an article in a 1985 CDA Journal entitled “Dentists as Detectives” and a four minute video back in 1989, an interview with the prolific Robin Cook, physician & ophthalmologist how he wrote a book in 6 weeks. Bernie said “By God I can do that!” and embarked on a 2nd career and a new uncharted course each summer. The central character in his novels is Dr Gum, a nickname he acquired from his “Gumtex” dental surgical training models which ultimately paid for his lengthy medical, dental, post doc studies & clinic. Dr Gum, perhaps part bumbling lieutenant Columbo, the deductive reasoning of Sherlock Holmes, the imaginary detective created by Sir Conan Doyle, also a physician. The tenacity of Dr Ryan conceived of by Tom Clancy, or the curiosity of Indiana Jones A dash of the dapper James Bond blended, shaken and stirred into the mix; the inspiration of in depth research of Michael Crichton and his creations or the powerful suspense of a John Grisham legalistic thriller. Or to simply bring some of his years as a dentist, lecturer and inventor to light by engaging in espionage, elucidating an enigma, disclosing a dastardly or diabolical scheme or dreaming up a formidable frightening future and as the prolific Zane Grey, dentist turned novelist turned screenwriter, pen more than 100 scripts. The author has enjoyed travel, tennis, sailing, skiing, hiking, swimming, cycling, flying & thinking.
