Book Summary

James Rollins, the New York Times bestselling master of nail-biting suspense and historical mystery, combines cutting-edge biotechnology with a centuries-old secret in an apocalyptic story that reveals where humankind is truly headed

The Doomsday Key

At Princeton University, a famed geneticist dies inside a biohazard lab. In Rome, a Vatican archaeologist is found dead in St. Peter's Basilica. In Africa, a U.S. senator's son is slain outside a Red Cross camp. The three murders on three continents bear a horrifying connection: all the victims are marked by a Druidic pagan cross burned into their fl esh.

The bizarre murders thrust Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force into a race against time to solve a riddle going back centuries, to a ghastly crime against humanity hidden within a cryptic medieval codex. The fi rst clue is discovered inside a mummifi ed corpse buried in an English peat bog—a gruesome secret that threatens America and the world.

Aided by two women from his past—one his exlover, the other his new partner—Gray must piece together the horrifying truth. But the revelations come at a high cost, and to save the future, Gray will have to sacrifi ce one of the women at his side. That alone might not be enough, as the true path to salvation is revealed in a dark prophecy of doom.

Sigma Force confronts humankind's greatest threat in an adventure that races from the Roman Coliseum to the icy peaks of Norway, from the ruins of medieval abbeys to the lost tombs of Celtic kings. The ultimate nightmare is locked within a talisman buried by a dead saint—an ancient artifact known as the Doomsday Key.

Book Opinions

  • Truly a page turner!

    By ReistLaxCoach
    This is my first James Rollins book read... and it, along with others, was introduced to me by the "$3.99 and under" book list provided by iTunes. This is truly one of those books that the pages keep turning... hard to put down! I had knee surgery on Friday, and had the book done by Sunday afternoon... and am looking forward to the next Rollins book that I purchase! Shame of it is, now all his books are out of that "$3.99 and under" category. However, if the others are like this, they will be well worth the price! Seems to me that his writing is in the vein of Robert Ludlum, so if you enjoy that type of writing, this should be right up your alley!

    By DrStorm
    This is the first Rollins Sigma saga book that I've read in a while and absolutely just realized how much I love this author and his story telling. After reading Tom Clancy's latest Novel "Dead or Alive" I realized how much better Rollins is - better story telling, and far easier to follow than Clancy, and Doomsday does not disappoint at all! Fast paced and "can't put down"...

    Absolutely loved this book. Great blend of history, mystery and suspense.
  • Great sigma story

    By BigBadBob2
    i prefer Rollins stand alone novels to his sigma novels but this one was very good. Second only to "map of bones", the best sigma novel by far.
