a Tech Exec who loves the stories about what could be and what should have been. Mixed with histories told from an outside perspective.
Not sure if the is the tv show the librarians or warehouse 13. Seems to be a military version of both.
The sigma force series is one of my all time favorites. Full of action, science, and mystery, the book always has me interested. I would recommend this to someone who likes to be left with questions and wonder
This started out with some promise, and had me interested early. Unfortunately, it was all down hill after the first few hours. Terribly trite dialogue, very poor characters, and a plot based on a technology not very well developed or explained. Oh yeah, and there's Nazis too.
The only thing missing was a skimpy dressed blonde breaking a heel while running from the aliens!
Save your credits for something worthwhile.
Book was great all the way up to the end. Its worth the read and enjoy how it is all brought together.

I have to be honest. For a couple years, I avoided this series mainly because of the character names - "Painter Crowe" and "Grayson Pierce". They just seemed too forced. However, I ran out of Cussler (Pitt/Cabrillo/Bell/Austin) / Pendergast books and finally bit the bullet.
I waited too long! This was my first Rollins book, and I really, really liked it. The plot ran nice and tight, there was a good science/metaphysics background, and it was "believable". Yes, it included a "mysterious rich family" who bought half the world's lead and gold supply without any red flags being raised, but I was totally enthralled with it.
What I liked most is that the main characters weren't infallible, like, say a Dirk Pitt. Don't get me wrong, Pitt is great, but Painter Crowe and crew were just more believable. Half way through the book, I went out a bought the rest of the Sigma series.
In summary - Yes, listen to this book.
Started off okay - and then, Vampire's and Werewolves! I usually stay away from Vampire stories, so I was taken by surprise.Dress them up with religious overtones... still Vampires.
I put the book down..... oy!
Never read the print version
Story line moved along like most Rollins novels
The little snippets of music designed to heighten the suspense are not necessary. Totally corny...
Do I need to read in order to get more from this book? Will start from #1. Want to know more about Nazi experiments.
Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
It was pretty good story line was steady always like Mr. Rollins but this one I could have missed without noticing.
Glad to have heard it through though but I don't think it was worth the cost.
