The Great Zoo of China - Matthew Reilly

The dragons have made their move. So far they have eaten the only two Chinese women in the group, a Chinese cameraman, and a Chinese bartender. The six Americans have suffered nothing worse than a couple of close calls. With a story set in China with a cast of mostly Chinese extras, I fully expect the casualties to be lopsided, but this isolated group was half Chinese, half American. So why only Chinese casualties? I'll tell you why.  ’Murica.
