Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2009-12-01)

In this sixth book in New York Times best-selling author Rollins's (www.jamesrollins.com) "Sigma Force" series-following The Last Oracle (2008), also available from Recorded Books-Commander Gray Pierce and his former lover join forces to find an antidote to a soon-to-be-released biological toxin. Peter Jay Fernandez's (A Man Finds His Way) narration is stellar; his diverse and nuanced accents help to bring this suspenseful international thriller to life. Highly recommended for fans of both the series and Dan Brown's books.

Review by Library Journal (2009-06-01)

Rollins's (The Last Oracle) prose explodes off the page in a twisty and compelling thriller that explores the issues of human overpopulation and genetically modified food. The Sigma Force must unravel the mysterious deaths of a geneticist, a senator's son working for the Red Cross in Africa, and someone with close ties to the Vatican. Gray Pierce and his team follow the clues starting from Rome, while Sigma leader Painter Crowe takes his group to meet with the head of a corporation that appears to be genetically modifying food.

Verdict: Swashbuckling adventure, elite team effort, and religious symbology all add up to another gripping and terrifying read. Rollins somehow juggles all of these elements and incorporates them into an amazing and brilliant tech no thriller that might be his best to date.
