The thinking man's thriller!

by Colby on 6/29/2006

I loved "Map of Bones" and could not wait for "Black Order." My pre-ordered copy arrived yesterday and I finished at two this morning! It was well worth the wait. Sigma Forces Painter Crowe and Grayson Pierce are back at it in this non-stop action thriller! A weird Plague has descended on a remote monastery hidden high in the Himalayas and in a nearby cave a Nazi swastika is found on the wall. A strange animal is stalking and taking wildlife on the plains of South Africa. In Europe someone is buying antique Victorian scientific documents. So what the heck do these three seemingly unrelated incidents have in common? You'll have to read Black Order to find out! But suffice to say, as always Rollins takes the reader on a roller coaster ride, that along the way explores the mystery of the origins of life. The mixture of heart pumping action and intellectual intrigue is hard to beat. He may now have surpassed the king of this genre, Michael Crichton! I also recommend "Map of Bones" and "A Tourist in the Yucatan!"

Product Overview

The elite scientists of Sigma Force race to track the ultimate mystery of mankind--the origins of life. From the frozen peaks of the Himalayas to the diamond fields of the Congo, they face daunting challenges as they try to unlock the cryptic secret.

From the Publisher:
A sinister fire in a Copenhagen bookstore ignites a relent-less hunt across four continents. Arson and murder reveal an insidious plot to steal a Bible that once belonged to Charles Darwin, the father of evolutionary theory. And Commander Gray Pierce dives headlong into a mystery that dates back to Nazi Germany . . . and to horrific experiments performed in a now-abandoned laboratory buried in a hollowed-out mountain in Poland.

A continent away, madness ravages a remote monastery high in Nepal, as Buddhist monks turn to cannibalism and torture. Lisa Cummings, a young American doctor investigating the atrocity, is suddenly a target of a bru-tal assassin working for clandestine forces that want the affair buried at any cost. Lisa's only ally is a hidden pilgrim, Painter Crowe -- director of SIGMA Force, an elite command of American scientists and Special Forces operatives -- who is already showing signs of the baffling malady that destroyed the minds of the monks.

Now it is up to Gray Pierce to save both Painter and Lisa -- and a world in jeopardy -- as SIGMA Force races to expose a century-old plot that threatens to destroy the current world order . . . and alter the destiny of humankind forever.

Combining the historic scope of The Da Vinci Code with the relentless thrills of today's best action novels, James Rollins's Black Order is a classic adventure -- an ingenious and breathtaking tour de force that explodes with revelations...while offering a startling new view of our place in the grand scheme of existence.
