Author Info
James Rollins
James Rollins is widely acclaimed for his action-adventure tales, while James Clemens is best known for his popular fantasy novels. The two are, however, one and the same; Rollins and Clemens are both pen names of former veterinarian James Paul Czajkowski. He has told interviewers that he has a common aim, no matter the genre. "My goal when I set out to write is not to examine the human condition or explore the trials and tribulations of modern society," he asserts. "When I set out to write, I aim for pure . . . adventure, pure escape and entertainment. I follow the three M's of storytelling: murder, magic, and mayhem." Czajkowski was born in Chicago, and from an early age he was a fan of pulp novels from the 1930s and ?40s. He also loved tales about explorers like Howard Carter, who discovered the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamen, and anything by Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. In 1985 he earned a doctoral degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Missouri and subsequently opened a veterinary practice in Sacramento, California. An avid spelunker and scuba diver, he also relaxed by writing in his spare time. Meeting one of his idols, fantasy writer Terry Brooks, at a conference led to an introduction to Brooks's publisher, who released the first Clemens novel, WIT'CH FIRE, in 1998. The following year, his first action-adventure, SUBTERRANEAN, was published under the name Rollins. Since then, he has regularly published under both names; he has admitted that at book signings he sometimes gets confused and autographs a volume incorrectly, but that fans don't generally seem to mind.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Sergeant Jordan Stone, Father Rhun Korza, and Dr. Erin Granger, are sent to explore a macabre discovery in Israel, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body of a mummified girl. But a brutal attack at the site thrusts them into a race to recover what was once preserved in the tomb's sarcophagus: a book rumored to have been written by Christ's own hand, a tome that is said to hold the secrets to His divinity. The enemy who hounds them is like no other, a force of ancient evil directed by a leader of impossible ambitions and incalculable cunning. From crumbling tombs to splendorous churches, Erin and her two companions must confront a past that traces back thousands of years, to a time when ungodly beasts hunted the dark spaces of the world, to a moment in history when Christ made a miraculous offer, a pact of salvation for those who were damned for eternity. In the end, be warned: some books should never be found, never opened?until now.
