The Doomsday Key book. I absolutely LOVE these James Rollins books!! This is another in the Sigma Force series, which has everything you could possibly want- action, adventure, science, history, as well as really great characters that you really care about. Each new book I read in the series is fascinating- I learn a lot from them about a range of things(eg. in this one, topics include GM crops, Saint Malachi, the Domesday book).

As mentioned in the introduction, it is a real historical tome. In regard to the lax regulation of the industry, Seeds of Deception by Jeffrey M. Smith should be required reading. As to some more sinister aspects, I found Seeds of Destruction by F. William Engdahl to be frightening (specifically regarding the contraceptive seeds mentioned in the novel). And some entries are indeed cryptically listed as "wasted.

Bring on the suspense! Sit on the edge of your seat and enjoy the ride! Well written and enough suspense to keep you guessing until the end. I love a good mystery and this definitely fits the bill. I am relatively new to the Sigma Force novels, only owning one other - The Doomsday Key, but I like the concept. A little historical and scientific truth added to a little science fiction, but fiction that could easily become reality,and you have your mystery. The characters are well defined but just enough is left in the air about each to keep you wondering whose the bad guy and just what is the actual mystery.

In these novels, you begin with historical fact, then scientific fact, and then some mystery is revealed in current day. This is just the preamble to get you thinking before jumping into the chapters which begin the hunt, the questions, the challenge. Love it and will be buying more Sigma Force books

This takes over the #1 slot among Rollins novels from Bone Labyrinth with tighter, better focused action and good characterization. If the character work feels just a hair below the excellence of Bone, Rollins more than makes up for it in other ways. As his characters work through their increasingly intertwined business and personal lives, what appears to be a natural phenomenon at Christmas Island in the Pacific turns out to involve the nefarious Guild, a (real) historical mystery going back to Marco Polo, and the quest for the ultimate biological weapon. The sheer amount of action is toned down a notch from Bones, but that lets us understand better what's going on, and the focus on key characters is tighter. The usual coincidences and luck help our heroes out, but this is a thriller and we readers accept his as part of the books' universe. Some of the "wisdom of the ancients" stuff is still farfetched (they knew about DNA how?) but this novel only relies on it enough to make the story work. The biological science is scary, indeed terrifying, and plausible. The technology throughout works fine: a last-chapter connection between continents on a low-power device initially struck me as absurd, but then I started working it out, and realized you could do it, and do it clandestinely, by bypassing the usual military/intel satellites and hiding it in a civilian system like ARGOS. That was reassuring, as I sometimes feel Rollins treats global communications almost as magic. The details of architecture and history are everywhere convincing, and the heroes have to rely heavily on their brains as well as their guns and gadgets to solve the mystery. Some of the heroes (e.g., Lisa, Gray) take the next step in developing as operatives and leaders, and a hunt for a mole (In stories like Midnight Watch, Sigma has a nasty habit of developing security weaknesses when the plot requires it) leads to a jaw-dropping scene about loyalties and who's playing who. Also, one of the early chapters wins some kind of ingenuity award for the cleverest use of a natural "weapon" to take out bad guys.
Overall, then, I think this is the best-written of the Sigma series, one I had an easy time following but a hard time putting down. Excellent work, sir.

I am thouorghly enjoying the Sigma series. James Rollins has done a remarkable job of drawing the reader into caring for the main as well as the secondary characters in the stories. The only (minor) niggle I have with his writing style is the repeated use of what I call "mini cliff hangers" to end a chapter, only to have the issue almost miraculously resolved a few pages later. It works the first few times, but loses much of it's literary punch after a while. That aside, the story telling keeps the reader engaged to the last page. I think Rollins' signature move is that one part in each book where the content of the entire story is drawn down to a razor edge; the reveal and subsequent emotional release in those few pages is almost magical and Rollins is at his absolute best here. I realize this has been a general review and not book-specific, but if it helps draw a few more readers into the Sigma series, then I will have accomplished my task. Don't be afraid to invest in this series.

Not exactly being an avid reader, I first was introduced to James Rollins Sigma Force series book by happenstance, an event I am thoroughly grateful for. The Map Of Bones book was picked up my girlfriend as a means to pass time between lengthy flights between Europe from the U.S. Fortunately for me, the in-flight media held her attention both directions leaving the book unread for several months. In a spout of boredom, and in pity of the unopened book, I cracked the cover and was immediately hooked. Any one who has read a James Rollins book, I'm sure, can relate.

Being hooked on the Sigma Force series, I recently acquired the Devil Colony in order to appease the Rollins' addiction. In normal style, the book opens with a peek into the not so distant past, this time it the late 1700's in Kentucky Territory, with a mysterious story of treasure, mystery, and murder with ties to the Founding Fathers of the United States, Lewis and Clark, Secret Societies, and Native Americans.

The story only gets more engaging and exciting as it moves into the present, when a lost treasure resurfaces and threatens to destroy the world, the
fate resting once again on the cunning and strength of the infamous Sigma Force. James Rollins once again delivers an evocative book impossibly weaving technology, history, and religion. Buy this book.

The Sigma Force series is a pretty well-written action/adventure series with well developed characters and story-lines that wander through the annals of history aligning James Rollins' imagination with authentic, usually violent, events and locations. I loved this novel as much due to the Native American story line, as well as the significant time spent with the iconic Painter Crowe, and the environmental angle from the First People's point of view based on their mythologies. The author has honed his craft revealing a sagacious perceptiveness with this thought provoking tale of morality and corruption. I quite enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to readers.
