Book Summary

During a crowded service at a cathedral in Germany, armed intruders in monks' robes unleash a nightmare of blood and destruction. But the killers have not come for gold; they seek a more valuable prize: the bones of the Magi who once paid homage to a newborn savior . . . a treasure that could reshape the world.

With the Vatican in turmoil, SIGMA Force leaps into action. An elite team of scientific and Special Forces operatives under the command of Grayson Pierce and accompanied by Lieutenant Rachel Verona of Rome's carabinieri, they are pursuing a deadly mystery that weaves through sites of the Seven Wonders of the World and ends at the doorstep of an ancient, mystical, and terrifying secret order. For there are those with dark plans for the stolen sacred remains that will alter the future of humankind . . . when science and religion unite to unleash a horror not seen since the beginning of time.

Book Opinions

  • An amazing thriller of historic proportions

    By pbeaum
    This thriller has more twists and turns than the ancient stories that are revealed. At times difficult to follow, as there are plots within plots and the history and detail can sometimes obfuscate the thread of the story. However, high action, extensive international travel and clever use of history and alchemy keeps you guessing to the end. Written for a movie It could be re-titled "Jack Ryan in the alternative The Da Vinci Code".

    Enjoyable read. Nice historical fiction without going overboard. I would read other works by this author. Recommended for escapism from the daily distractions.

    Loved this book. The fiction, wrapped so skillfully around fact, is fast paced, entertaining and well written. Will be looking for more SIGMA Force books.

    A little more detailed than usual for him, longer descriptions which I find boring, but overall pretty good.

    First third was slow and full of toooo much detail. After that I couldn't put the book down. Great book full of history.

    Really enjoyed this. It is fast paced with enough history to keep it possible. A lot of fun to read. I even did a little research in some of the books Rollins mentioned. But, best of all, it had an ending!

    Thoroughly entertaining with a great mix of science and extra natural.
  • Lackluster at best

    By Gatehall
    I liked the first book in the series enough to read this second book. I don't know that I'd by the third. The character development was not what I would have expected for a spy novel and a chase through Europe and Egypt. It wasn't near the type of page turner typified of better novelists like Daniel SIlva. Most of all, it was very cliche and largely predictable, despite some good unforeseen twists and turns. Sadly, the story evolved more through narrative rather than action and dialogue, making it nothing more than an elongated fable. There are better books out there.
