The Seventh Plague: A Sigma Force Novel

By: James Rollins

What impresses me every single time I read one of James Rollins's Sigma Force adventure novels is how many myths, puzzles, and scientific theories he manages to stuff into one book. Think of a Michael Crichton novel but on steroids and with a zippy joie de vivre. (I like to imagine Rollins sitting behind his keyboard and thinking, "But what if I added this crazy thing…" And then doing it, no matter how over-the-top the action will get.) Director Painter Crowe, operative Gray Pierce, former assassin Seichan, and the other members of Sigma Force (a secret group under DARPA) have tackled many strange things in the past, but the biblical plagues of Exod

Product Description

What impresses me every single time I read one of James Rollins's Sigma Force adventure novels is how many myths, puzzles, and scientific theories he manages to stuff into one book. Think of a Michael Crichton novel but on steroids and with a zippy joie de vivre. (I like to imagine Rollins sitting behind his keyboard and thinking, "But what if I added this crazy thing…" And then doing it, no matter how over-the-top the action will get.) Director Painter Crowe, operative Gray Pierce, former assassin Seichan, and the other members of Sigma Force (a secret group under DARPA) have tackled many strange things in the past, but the biblical plagues of Exodus is a new challenge for them—and one that now threatens the entire world through an unstoppable virus. Contagion theory, Nikola Tesla, living mummification, and more all coalesce into a globe-spanning race to save humanity before an ancient disease wipes out everyone through genetic modification. Those who have read Sigma novels before will enjoy this latest instalment in which Rollins put his team through their paces in the desert, the jungle, and the northern icy wastelands of Canada as they track down clues left thousands of years ago on how to stop the oncoming plague. Those who are new to Sigma will catch up easily as they strap themselves in for a twisty, plunging thrill ride. --Adrian Liang, The Amazon Book Review

Review

Fascinating research beautifully told ... a riveting read.
--Wilbur Smith, New York Times bestseller on The Pharaoh

Bestseller Rollins's epic...features exotic locales, heroic quests, quixotic villains, action galore, and enough science and scientific curiosities to titillate even casual readers...Rollins's characters are as large as his landscape in this vast and vastly entertaining thriller saga.
--Publishers Weekly (*starred* review on The Seventh Plague)

When it comes to the blending of action, adventure, history, and science, there is no other author who does it better than Rollins. Fans of Clive Cussler, Steve Berry, and Michael Crichton should already have Rollins on their mandatory reading list.
