A sinister fire in a Copenhagen bookstore ignites a relentless hunt across four continents. Arson and murder reveal an insidious plot to steal a Bible that once belonged to Charles Darwin. 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 in Poland.

A continent away, madness ravages a remote monastery in Nepal, as Buddhist monks turn to cannibalism and torture. Lisa Cummings, an American doctor investigating the atrocity, is suddenly a target of a brutal assassin. And Lisa's only ally is Painter Crowe, director of SIGMA Force, who already shows signs of the baffling malady.

Now it is up to Gray Pierce to save them both 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Edge-of-your-seat excitment.” 

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “This is Cussler and Ludlum territory with a dash of Dan Brown, sure to please devotees of any of these authors.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Grover Gardner weaves the threads of Rollins’ plot into a whole cloth, adding color and body to the characters. Moving from continent to continent, Pierce and Crowe race to stop the villains. Gardner’s German and Afrikaner accents intensify the horror of the out-of-control experiment.” 

    AudioFile

  • “Rollins keeps getting better with every novel, and his fast-paced thrillers are feasts for the imagination. Why Hollywood hasn’t snapped his books up yet is a mystery, but it’s doubtful any big-screen version could capture the author’s gung-ho enthusiasm and intellectual curiosity. If you like all-stops-out, high-concept adventure, this one’s for you.”

    " Exciting & intersting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nanette | 1/17/2014

    " While the story and writing were well done, I found myself growing very tired of the book. I also found that I could pretty much follow the action by just reading the ends of each chapter with a bit of skimming through the rest. That's how I read the last hundred pages: skipping and jumping. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Athena | 12/13/2013

    " This was a great book. Action packed, full of scientific information that didn't leave your head spinning and history facts. The characters were believable and added humor when needed. I will definitely be looking for more books by James Rollins! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay Schwan | 12/4/2013

    " Very good. Action packed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jolene | 11/10/2013

    " *gasp* as always James Rollins doesn't disappoint. Cheap thrills + Science Fiction based on current science ponderings = satisfied. Always easy reads but I'm a sucker for the Indiana Jones type adventures, specially with a mixture of science and history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 11/2/2013

    " My favorite of the series so far "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 January | 10/22/2013

    " Ok - this was way more science than I can usually handle, but the action and pace of the novel was fantastic. The flipping back and forth between Gray and Painter was great, and kept you reading and reading and reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 G. Tramaine Peoples | 6/25/2013

    " Fantastic.. James Rollins does it again.. Minus the first book, Sandstorm, the Sigma Series has been a fascinating read.. Can't wait to start Judas Strain.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John P | 6/7/2013

    " Only so so..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 4/16/2013

    " This was another good Rollins book. I like the way he takes real scientific facts and weaves them into a action packed adventure. I think I liked book 2 a little better, but this was good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Coach | 8/29/2012

    " Another thriller in-line with the rest of his books. For me, not his best but still a fun read. Makes you wonder what the Germans were thinking during WWII. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 8/19/2012

    " Rollins does a wonderful job of weaving fascinating historic events, real locations, and real science into an amazing story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faye Bierbower | 4/23/2012

    " Not the kind of book you should read all at once before attempting to get a good night's sleep. Adrenaline-lovers, look no further. :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 4/4/2012

    " Another great read. It postulates what may have become of some secret Nazi technology that was destroyed before the Allies could seize it. Fascinating stuff and action packed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 3/5/2012

    " THis book is so fun. I can't tell you how much fun it is so you'll just have to read it. Would make the ultimate video game. Nazis, supersoldiers, genetic meddling with animals, plots to take over the world, and yet not as cheesy as all that. good job. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lillian | 12/18/2011

    " good adventure story with plotlines in Asia, Africa and Europe; former Nazis, genetic engineering for a master race, scary machines and cryptic messages in old books. Great airplane reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 11/13/2011

    " This would have been four stars if not for long-winded dialogue and frequent boring information dumps. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pepper Turner | 10/9/2011

    " Very good - I finished it in four days. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 8/11/2011

    " It was another of Rollins novels. But I found it so extremely far fetched in the end that I wanted it to be over. It was another one of those pick up and put down later, bus reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yona | 5/7/2011

    " Liked it very much. I really enjoy reading about Sigma Force and their director Painter Crowe and his adventures all over the world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 4/14/2011

    " I think this may have now taken the place of my favorite Sigma novel. Nazis, genetics, a feisty teenager, and our familiar cast of characters just made for a great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 3/26/2011

    " I'm already looking forward to the next book. This is like an action movie in book form. Fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Les | 3/20/2011

    " This book was very good. Like the characters very much. The plot was well written. "

    " Good read, lots of blood and guts. every once in a while I need to read one of these.

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 2/1/2011

    " Once again, I was much overjoyed with Mr. Rollins. He brought Science back to action (literally). This book is filled with action scenes but while all this is going on quantum physics comes into play. The Sigma team saves the day again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fiera78 | 1/31/2011

    " Absolutely fantastic book. I read it in 4 days. I like the theorie of quant physics, it's interesting. In few lessons we will have this part of physics at school. :D "
