The Lost World
It is a sequel to his earlier novel Jurassic Park. In , both novels were re-published as a single book titled Michael Crichton's Jurassic World , unrelated to the film of the same name. In , four years after the disaster at Jurassic Park, chaos theorist and mathematician Ian Malcolm — who is revealed to have survived the events of the previous novel , despite being declared dead in the epilogue — teams up with paleontologist Richard Levine to search for a "lost world" of dinosaurs following rumors of strange animal corpses washing up on the shores of Costa Rica. In , they learn of Site B on Isla Sorna, the "production facility" where the now-defunct company InGen hatched and grew the dinosaurs for their Jurassic Park theme park on nearby Isla Nublar. Afraid that the Costa Rican government will find Isla Sorna and destroy the dinosaurs, Levine hastily embarks on an expedition to the island without Malcolm. He arrives with a Costa Rican guide named Diego, but shortly after arriving, the two are attacked by mysterious creatures, later identified as Carnotaurus , who kill Diego.
