From official release/information:
Boundary by Eric Flint and Ryk E. Spoor is a fascinating novel combining many of my favorite elements: aliens, dinosaurs, and space travel. Helen Sutter is a paleontologist struggling like the rest of her colleagues to perform quality science under harsh environmental conditions and anemic funding. But this year things are a little different. First she's presented with a fossil the likes of which she's never seen before. Then the dig unearths fossils that are flat out impossible: A pack of velociraptors all killed while attacking a creature that is completely unrelated to any other lifeform on Earth. Meanwhile, A.J. Baker, hotshot remote sensing wiz, is working with NASA to probe the moons of Mars when he uncovers a secret buried in rock and preserved by the vacuum of space for the last 65 million years. Together, they will need to discover just how these two events can have so very much in common.
