Typical Rollins.......in a good way. The story line that has been going for the last several books continues and more is learned about the "bad guys". Set up for the next one..........should be good. This one introduced a new character and his canine companion......expect to see more of them in future books. ( )

This was my first James Rollins book! Rollins writing is unique in the spy thriller category when compared to the likes of Brad Thor, Vince Flynn. The breadth, depth, complexity of characters, plot, and overall story are very compelling.

The Sigma force series also stand apart in it's sense of adventures weaved throughout each book. Another notable aspect is the use of technology or sci-fi feel to his writing. When you add all of these together, James Rollins is a must read. Looking forward to reading the next book installment, The Eye of God.

This latest outing of the Sigma crew lives up to its predecessors and shows why Rollins is one of my favorite series authors in the thriller field. The usual gang is all here and doing their usual good Sigma work and battling their own personal demons and issues, and we meet a couple of new characters of the "a man and his dog" variety. And they make wonderful additions here, even if it's only for the one outing. (Or is it?) The overall story is interesting and fun and is plausible enough, although it does require a rather significant number of functional psychopath types to all find a way to work together. As for the science behind the story, I like that Rollins keeps it realistic for the most part, and I like that he continues his tradition of talking about it in some detail in some commentary after the conclusion of the story. Still, there were once again a couple of over-the-top story elements outside of the realm of science that I really wish he would have avoided. Think of a typical James Bond movie and its stunt/special effects craziness and you get the idea. Given that Rollins himself is clearly no dummy and that he does his homework, it seems unfortunate to me when these pandering plot elements (as I see them) find their way into his novels. I'd like to think that his readers don't need to have stuff exploding left and right and buildings (and entire artificial islands) blowing up and collapsing in a display of overkill that is hard to match, and I firmly believe that a thriller can be thrilling without such things. So it's enough to cost things a star in my book, even though most of the story is top-notch. Cut out those twenty or so offending pages of what I consider to be unnecessary overkill and the book instantly becomes a four-star read. ( )

We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence ... building a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

   ~John F Kennedy,
      from a speech given at the Walford-Astroia Hotel on April 27, 1961
Surely God would not have created such a being as man, with an ability to grasp the infinite, to exist only for a day! No, no, man was made for immortality.
