During a crowded service at a cathedral in Germany, armed intruders in monks' robes unleash a nightmare of blood and destruction. But the killers have not come for gold; they seek a more valuable prize: the bones of the Magi who once paid homage to a newborn savior . . . a treasure that could reshape the world.

With the Vatican in turmoil, SIGMA Force leaps into action. An elite team of scientific and Special Forces operatives under the command of Grayson Pierce and accompanied by Lieutenant Rachel Verona of Rome's carabinieri, they are pursuing a deadly mystery that weaves through sites of the Seven Wonders of the World and ends at the doorstep of an ancient, mystical, and terrifying secret order. For there are those with dark plans for the stolen sacred remains that will alter the future of humankind . . . when science and religion unite to unleash a horror not seen since the beginning of time.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Patrick Gibson | 2/16/2014

    " "Fun read" seems to be about it. Even though I have read all of James Rollins books, I consider them nothing more than a guilty pleasue. Along with Clive Cussler and a few others, I get my fill of big boy adventure. Don't believe the reviewers that liken this to a poor mans 'DaVinci Code'--it actually has more ideas and dense with adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Gene | 2/13/2014

    " Another James Rollins thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Greg | 2/8/2014

    " This is a good thriller. It treads similar ground to the Da Vinci Code, however it is more action-packed. The science is speculative at best (ancient Egyptians discovered superconductors). And typical of Rollins work, there is the occasional howler of a factual error (e.g., Dante wrote in vernacular Italian, not Latin). The book is a definite recommendation to fans of Art Bell's late night radio show or readers of Fortean Times. "

    " Interesting read. Very reminiscent of The DaVinci Code. "
