Publisher Description

In this superb thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author James Rollins, Sigma Force must battle a group of rogue scientists who have unleashed a diabolical project that could bring about the extinction of mankind.

Salvation . . . or annihilation?

What if scientists could bio-engineer the next great world prophet—the next Buddha, Mohammed, or even Jesus? Would it mark the Second Coming or initiate a chain reaction leading to the end of mankind?

Formed during the Cold War, a think tank of world scientists known as the JASONS have discovered a way to manipulate and enhance autistic children who show savant talents—mathematical geniuses, statistical masterminds, brilliant conceptual artists. Yet among their young patients a strange side-effect begins to arise. Before it can be analyzed fully, a rogue group of the JASONS begins their own secret experimentation with a cadre of the best children. Their goal, to create a world prophet for the new millennium, one who can be manipulated to create a new era of global peace . . . a peace on their own terms, that is. But such manipulation has grim consequences as a biological meltdown among the children begins to occur—turning the innocent into something far more frightening.

To stop the JASONS before they engineer the extinction of mankind, Commander Gray Pierce of SIGMA Force races against time to solve a mystery that dates back to the first famous oracle of history—the Greek Oracle of Delphi. But can the past save the future?

"As with all the other James Rollins books this one was great. I love it when there's a thread of believability in these books (just that little something that in the back of my mind says "yeah, that "COULD really happen". This one definitely had that. I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading the next in the series. Here's my full review of The Last Oracle."

Quotes

  • “Rollins combines real-world science with high-octane action…As exciting as any movie.”

    — Chicago Sun-Times
  • “Rollins doesn’t just take us to the edge of our seats. He sweeps us off them into his finely etched world of masterminds and master plans where anything can happen and usually does…The Last Oracle is flat-out great.”

    — Providence Journal-Bulletin
  • “The perfect escape novel, an edge of-your-seat read.”

    — Knoxville News-Sentinel
  • “There are plenty of historical references and a plethora of pulse-pounding action, and narrator Peter Jay Fernandez makes good use of it all to create a compelling and fun listening experience. He reads with a solid voice that is straightforward, honest and rich. There is a mysterious, almost foreboding element in his tone that carries the story forward into deeper and darker territory, while bringing listeners to the edge of their seats.”

    " By far the worst of the Sigma Force Books I've read and I am a pretty big fan of the previous books in the series. This one just seems so cheesy hollywood action flick to me or something. I was trying to get through it for the sake of being up to date in the series (there's one more book after this one), but I just haven't had any desire to return to it to get it done so I'm setting it aside officially for now.

    " This is my favorite of Rollins's works because it continues a story line from Judas Strain, which adds a bit more depth to the story, something that most thrillers could use. "

    " The book appeared too concocted. The only two pieces of history that I learned were (i) Oracle and Delphi .. and (view spoiler)[ (ii) relation between gypsy in Europe and India. Not a bad pick for casual reading. (hide spoiler)] "

    " This is a sequel of sorts to The Judas Strain. To say more would spoil part of the plot. This has to be the best Rollins yet and I have never been disappointed by him! But read The Judas Strain first! "
