From the depths of the Indian Ocean, a horrific plague has arisen to devastate humankind. But it is merely a harbinger of the doom that is to follow. Aboard a cruise liner transformed into a makeshift hospital, Dr. Lisa Cummings and Monk Kokkalis, operatives of SIGMA Force, search for answers to the bizarre affliction. But there are others with far less altruistic intentions. In a savage and sudden coup, terrorists hijack the vessel, turning a mercy ship into a floating bio-weapons lab. A world away, SIGMA's Commander Gray Pierce thwarts the murderous schemes of a beautiful would-be killer who holds the first clue to the discovery of a possible cure, then joins forces with the woman who wanted him dead. As a relentless madman dogs their every step, Gray and his unlikely ally are pulled into an astonishing mystery buried deep in antiquity and in humanity's genetic code.--From publisher description.… (mer)

Pro (as an audio book) - It's long
Cons - Preposterous plot; solutions to subplots get lost; two major characters disappear w/o resolution; conclusions comes out of nowhere..
Other Rollins novels have been more interesting. ( )

Rollins gets better and better with every book. This one was a great ride! ( )

The book is way, way too long. I found myself counting the pages remaining...and believe me there were lots! Just when I was falling asleep the story would take off again and I'd be caught up. Overall... thanks to relentless action in spectacular places, great characters in the Sigma Force crew, and plenty of spurious science (again sometimes too much)...it all provided more than enough distraction from some almost unbelievable breathtaking coincidences and leaps of logic.

I've always liked Rollins' novels. They have plenty of historical facts with just a tinge of the supernatural to make a good story. The Judas Strain is no different, though the supernatural really doesn't come into play until the very end. Plenty of intrigue with this one, gun battles, hostages being tortured, escapes, some deaths. Of course the church has an involvement and the historical figures from the past are never quite what they seem. And the amazing part, is most of this does have a basis in historical fact. I can't say this is the best of Rollins, but it is worth the read if you enjoy his other work. ( )

Desde las profundidades del océano Índico surge una plaga desconocida y mortal que amenaza con acabar con la humanidad. Lisa Cummings y Monk Kokkalis -miembros de la organización secreta Fuerza Sigma- se hallan investigando acerca de la plaga a bordo de un crucero transformado en un hospital provisional cuando éste es secuestrado por terroristas y transformado en un laboratorio flotante de armas biológicas. Mientras, y a medida que la pandemia se extiende de modo incontrolado a nivel mundial, el comandante de Fuerza Sigma, Gray Pierce, se embarca en una búsqueda que le llevará a visitar desde catedrales bizantinas y tumbas venecianas hasta las ruinas de Angkor Wat en Camboya, siguiendo los pasos del más famoso explorador de la historia, Marco Polo. Pierce se enfrenta a un misterio que tiene sus raíces en la Antigüedad, así como en el código genético humano mientras sortea todo tipo de peligros ( )

ju*das strain, n. A scientific term for an organism that drives an entire species to extinction.
"I have not told half of what I saw."

Marco Polo, on his deathbed
The pestilence came first to the town of Kaffa on the Black Sea. There the mighty Mongolian Tartars waged siege upon the Italian Genoese, merchants and traders. Plague struck the Mongol armies with burning boils and bloody expulsions. Struck with great malice, the Mongol lords used their siege catapults to cast their diseased dead over the Genoese walls, and spread plague in a litter of bodies and ruin. In the year of the incarnation of the Son of God 1347, the Genoese fled under sail in twelve galleys back to Italy, to the port of Messina, bringing the Black Death to our shores.

-- DUKE M. GIOVANNI (1356)

(Milan: A. Mondadori, 1924), 34-35
Why the bubonic plague suddenly arose out of China's Gobi desert during the Middle Ages and slew a third of the world's populaton remains unknown. In fact, no one knows why so many plagues and influenzas of the last century -- SARS, the Avian Flu -- have arisen out of Asia. But what is known with fair certainty: the next pandemic will arise again out of the East.
