John Hammond. John Hammond's dream has been forgotten and covered up by

coast of Costa Rica, where John Hammond and inGen created their genetically
Richard Levine travels to Isla Sorna, inGen's Site B, with a scientific
research team including Jurassic Park survivor and mathematician Ian Malcolm; engineers Eddie Carr and Jack Thorne; animal biologist Sarah Harding; and two stowaway kids, Kelly and Arby. Things on the research
expedition are going well until the architect of Jurassic Park's destruction,
Lewis Dodgson, learns of the island and comes in search of dinosaur eggs
to begin building BioSyn's own version of Jurassic Park.
Chaos Theory errupts and both Dodgson's team and Levine's team find themselves
on the run for their lives from some of the killer dinosaurs with whom
Dr. Malcolm had already crossed paths with just six years ago. Dr. Levine's
group not only has to contend with the dinosaurs, but with murderous rival
scientist Lewis Dodgson and his cronies, as their misfortune interferes
with their plans to escape off of Isla Sorna.
