Dangerous Convicts. Deadly Dinosaurs. The secret encoded in her DNA lies between them …

Dedicated reptile expert Oakley Laveau loves the thrill of wrestling a ’gator. But her dream job at the swamp tour slips away when she’s charged with a crime she doesn’t remember: her best friend’s murder. Sentenced to life on a secluded isle, she’ll have to battle violent criminals and genetically modified dinosaurs to uncover the truth.

As soon as she steps on the island, she’s swept up by the charming leader of a gang of convicts and his dubious offer of protection. But it’s hard to heed his warnings when somewhere in the dino-infested rainforest hides a witness who knows the shocking facts behind Oakley’s amnesia.

Hunted by humans and beasts, can Oakley expose the truth before she meets a bloody end?

Extinction Island is the first book in the suspenseful Jurassic Judgment sci-fi series. If you like fearless heroines, action-packed adventures, and a touch of romance, then you’ll love Janice Boekhoff’s thrilling novel.

I asked the author…

What is one of your favorite quotes from extinction island and why do you love it?

You have godlike powers with no spiritual compass. It’s a dangerous place to be. —Cane LeBlanc, Extinction Island
I love this quote because it speaks to the responsibility that we all have to determine our direction in life. There are too many people in the world who have power and don’t use it well. Our choices matter to those around us. People who follow God’s spiritual compass will seek out the hurting and lonely in order to offer healing and reconciliation. Now that is truly powerful!

Blessed with an insatiable curiosity and a low tolerance for boredom, award-winning author Janice Boekhoff (pronounced Beau-cough) has worked more than twenty jobs ranging from Loan Consultant (important, but mortgage paperwork makes her sleepy) to Landfill Environmentalist (literally her smelliest job) to Research Geologist (the job that gave her the best suntan and the most adventures). A Midwest native, she writes from Iowa where she lives with her hubby, three basketball-loving kids, and one adorable Vizsla.
