Relic by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

Visitors to the New York Museum of Natural History are found savagely murdered, and their autopsies suggest that the killer might not be human. . .

Despite the inability of museum staff, or the police to find the killer, the museum plans to go forward with the gala opening party for its newest exhibit.  As the exhibit is opened another body is found, causing panic among the many well-heeled guest just as a terrible storm causes a catastrophic power outage in the museum, injuring many as security doors crash down, locking visitors inside.   Museum researcher, Margo Green, finds herself working with her doctoral adviser, Dr. Frock, and FBI Agent Pendergast, to follow the trail of the maniac – or monster – terrorizing the museum. 

This is the very first Pendergast novel, and was impossible to put down.
