Publisher's Summary

Deep in the Rocky Mountains, a gruesome discovery - hundreds of mummified bodies - stirs international attention and fervent controversy. Despite doubts to the bodies' origins, the local Native American Heritage Commission lays claim to the prehistoric remains, along with the strange artifacts found in the same cavern: gold plates inscribed with an unfathomable script.
During a riot at the dig site, an anthropologist dies horribly. All evidence points to a radical group of Native Americans, including one agitator who escapes with a vital clue to the murder and calls on the one person who might help - her uncle, Painter Crowe, director of Sigma Force. To protect his niece and uncover the truth, Painter will ignite a war across the nation's most powerful intelligence agencies. Yet, an even greater threat looms as events in the Rocky Mountains have set in motion a geological meltdown that threatens the entire western half of the U.S.
From the volcanic peaks of Iceland to the blistering deserts of the American Southwest, from the gold vaults of Fort Knox to the bubbling geysers of Yellowstone, Painter Crowe joins forces with commander Gray Pierce to penetrate the shadowy heart of a dark cabal, one that has been manipulating American history since the founding of the 13 colonies. But can he discover the truth before it destroys all he holds dear?

Sigma to the rescue - again!

I am a huge fan of Rollins' Sigma books (and his stand alones) and have been waiting for this book. I spent two days listening to it and just finished it a bit ago.

No need to go over the plot - the description says what it is. What I enjoy so much about Rollins' books is what I learn. I'm going to have to listen to the book again with a browser open to check on the facts he presents. As always his characters are full of life and are like old friends that I get to share an adventure with every year or so.

There are so many twists and turns in this book that I sometimes think we need a road map to keep track of what group is up to what. But this just keeps me listening and if I were reading the book I'd label it a "page turner."

The only problem with listening to Devil Coloiny is that - now I have to wait who knows how long for another new adventure with Sigma. Guess I'll just have to re-listen to them and hope that the next book isn't too far off - especially after the last few lines of the story.

Rollins makes me laugh, gasp, and cry. I love his work and can't wait to see what trip he'll take his fans on next.

A real "page turner."

This was excellent. Good reader. Great character development. Great plot. Lots of action and suspense. Really got absorbed in this book to the point I think I finished listening to it in record time. Again, a real "page turner." If I could have rated this book higher than a "5" - I still would have given it the highest rating possible. Just went from finishing this book to purchasing another by James Rollins. You won't be disappointed!!
