Summary:

New York Times bestselling author James Rollins takes you to the edge of modern medicine, genetics, and technology, revealing the next evolutionary leap forward: Immortality-a future conceived through the monstrous ingenuity of man . . .

Galilee, 1025. A cunning Templar knight uncovers a holy treasure: the Bachal Isu-the staff of Jesus Christ-a priceless icon that holds a mysterious and terrifying power that will forever change humanity if unleashed.

A millennium later, Somali pirates hijack a yacht off the coast off the Horn of Africa, kidnapping a young pregnant American woman and brutally killing her husband. Painter Crowe and his SIGMA team are enlisted for the top secret rescue mission. The kidnapped woman is Amanda Gant-Bennett, the daughter of U.S. president James Gant. Crowe is more than a little suspicious that the kidnapping masks a far more nefarious plot.

In the field, Commander Gray Pierce leads his small team of operatives into the treacherous African jungle to find the missing woman. But what should be a straightforward rescue turns into a fiery ambush and a deadly act of betrayal. As Commander Pierce and his team discover, the hostage is a pawn in a shattering act of terrorism with dark and shocking repercussions. And the danger is only beginning . . .

    The narrator is great! He does a really good job of changing his voice to fit each character. This is a typical Rollins' book of adrenaline pumped action, improbable high tech gadgets, death defying moments and lots of fun. I also like the mix of serious characters (Seichan, Gray & Painter) with the more comic ones like Kolwalski and Monk. The ending is a bit of a plop rather than a more satisfying bang. However, it's a good entertainment series.

    The amazing thing about this book is that the diverse characters are all out on their own part of the mission but you see the threads being weaved by each of them. Somehow you know they are going to entwine and so it builds the excitement as you listen to each chapter. I enjoyed this book immensely. Would highly recommend it!

    Fantastic narrator. This was my first Sigma Force Novel and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. There are a lot of fairly in depth action "scenes" that didn't hold my attention well, but this is the same in movies. There's a car chase...ok, but I don't need or want it to last for 15 minutes, can we please move on with the story? Aside from that, it was a very good story and definitely worth a listen.
