My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoy the “24 hours to save the world” type of adventure story. And James Rollins does them very well, plenty of danger and suspense, and this one has Nazis!!
Sigma Force are back in action, with Gray Pierce investigating who is buying up old books at European auctions, one of which is a Bible owned by Charles Darwin. Meanwhile Painter Crowe is in the Himalayas after a cry for help from a monastery high up in the mountains where monks and nearby villagers are dying of a mystery illness.
Two seemingly different cases? Of course not.
Someone is trying to create a master race using technology supposedly lost after WWII. The race is on to discover who and stop them before it is too late.
Great fun, and an interesting story (some of it based on reality).
This is the third in a series but you can read them as stand alone novels.
