James Rollins, a #1 New York Times bestselling author and mastermind, has returned with another riveting and suspenseful thriller. This time around, he’s revealing an ancient threat hidden in the Bible… one that threatens the modern world.
Professor Harold McCabe is a British archaeologist. Well… was. McCabe was a member of an expedition that went missing for over two years. Out of the blue one day, he stumbles out of the Egyptian desert. But he dies before he can tell his story. Even worse, his body reveals a horrible atrocity committed on him… Are you ready?
His captors had begun to mummify him while he was still alive (!!!!!). And then, to make matters downright terrible, one of the medical workers who performed McCabe’s autopsy falls ill with an unknown disease… and one that is quickly spreading. Sigma Force is contacted (bringing all of your favourite members back in action) and must discover the truth behind this brutal murder as well as the fate of the missing team.
The global crisis continues to grow and eventually becomes a danger that will unleash a cascading series of plagues, leading to a scourge that could kill all of the world’s children…
James Rollins’ twelfth Sigma Force novel does not disappoint and might even leave you breathless (like it did me). The historical and science blend that Rollins manages will feed the action, adventure, and escapism you’ve been craving since his last novel.
And if this is your first time reading James Rollins, don’t sweat it! The Seventh Plague stands alone very well, so you can jump into this one as your first. It’s entertaining, compelling, full of suspense and truly a masterpiece.
