Publisher's Summary

An earthquake in Masada, Israel, kills hundreds and reveals a tomb buried in the heart of the mountain. A trio of investigators - Sergeant Jordan Stone, a military forensic expert; Father Rhun Korza, a Vatican priest; and Dr. Erin Granger, a brilliant but disillusioned archaeologist - are sent to explore the macabre discovery, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body of a mummified girl.
But a brutal attack at the site sets the three on the run, thrusting them into a race to recover what was once preserved in the tomb's sarcophagus: a book rumored to have been written by Christ's own hand, a tome that is said to hold the secrets to His divinity. The enemy who hounds them is like no other, a force of ancient evil directed by a leader of impossible ambitions and incalculable cunning.

Surprising Disappointment

I've read all of James Rollins' books. I buy and read/listen as soon as each new one comes out. I was surprised when I was disappointed in this one. The story seemed to be a series of hackneyed elements from other series and books I've read over recent years. The characters' dialogue was juvenile in many instances. I expected someone to come out with "golly gosh" at any time. Overall it didn't read/listen like a true James Rollins book with the action rolling me along to the point that I could not put the book down. Please where is Sigma Force??

The redeeming quality was the narrator. He brought life to the mostly cardboard characters with his voice.

Bring Sigma Back!

Would you try another book from James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell and/or Christian Baskous?

I didn't like it at all. I've always been a big fan of James Rollins, will not read any more collaborations.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Michael Palmer's latest.

Which character – as performed by Christian Baskous – was your favorite?

None in this book, which is not typical.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was angry that it was not the intelligent, action adventure I've come to expect from James Rollins, this was just another vampire book and not a particularly good one.

Any additional comments?

I hope James Rollins goes back to Sigma Force with intelligent, capable, multi-talented real people in interesting quests.
