Esau

Philip Kerr: Esau (USA 1998)

From the Publisher:
In an ice cave high on a forbidden Himalayan mountaintop, renegade climber Jack Furness unearths a perfectly preserved skull, a fossil that may be the missing link and the scientific discovery of the century. To Berkeley paleoanthropologist Stella Swift, the miraculous find warrants an immediate expedition up the mountain's treacherous Fish Tail Peak. But with neighboring Pakistan and India on the brink of nuclear catastrophe, the Pentagon and the GA have their own designs on the remote site. Now, they're all about to enter a domain where one of nature's fiercest creations has thrived for millions of years -- and modern man was never meant to be.

Philip Kerr: Esau. Pocket Books, ISBN: 0671019929 (April, 1998), 406 p., $6.99.

Esau

Philip Kerr: Esau (UK 1996)

From the Publisher:
Jack Furness, mountaineer, isscaling one of the highest peaks in Nepal when he slips and falls into a crevasse - where a fossilised fragment of skull has lodged in the ice. Intrigued, he delivers the fossil as a challenge to his former girlfriend, a young paleoanthropoligist at the University of California. She is transfixed; the skull defies classification, but appears to be a rare example of an early hominid, a form of ape-man whom she names Esau. Jack and Stella set off on an expedition to track the hominid form, despite worsening political situation and the threat of nuclear war on the Indian subcontinent. They believe they may come across other skeletons, or even living examples of this strnage creature, the fabled yeti. What they discover is a terrifying new breed of ape-man that has serious implications for science and chilling consequences for Jack and Stella. The tension escalates as they discover that there is a mole on the expedition whose mission is in direct conflict with their own.

Esau

Philip Kerr: Esau (USA 1997)

From the Publisher:
Clinging to the southwest face of Annapurna, the climber cuts another handhold. Suddenly, everything goes still - then the mountain roars, shaking loose its killing load, tumbling the climber before it. In an ice cave high in the Himalayas, a perfectly preserved skull is found. A fossil from a long-ago era, it is neither ape nor man.

In a lab on the Berkeley campus, a paleoanthropologist learns that what she took to be a fossil find of the first order is in fact the scientific discovery of a lifetime - proof of an alternative line of hominid development.

Philip Kerr spins a tale in which science, politics, and human frailty combine to take us on a stunning foray into the wilder shores of evolution, leaving us to speculate uneasily about the true nature of man.
