I have read hundreds of thrillers and this could be the worst ever. It has absolutely nothing going for it. Do not waste your money.

I would have enjoyed this book so much more if there was less action – it was like Dan Brown on steroids.
The idea buried deep down in there (under all the pyrotechnics) was a good one but overall it seemed like just one over-the-top action scene after another. Beat-em-up, shoot-em-up, chase everyone around... good on the Big-Screen, not so good in a novel; was he hoping to get this made into a movie?
In my opinion, the story would have been just as good if not better if at least half the action scenes were cut out.
I bought this book based on my love of thrillers and some good reviews. Overall I have to say that the book is entertaining and I did love that the author writes in the same vein as Michael Crichton, meaning lots of true elements to a fantastic, science filled story. Unfortunately I think I've reached my tolerance for all-knowing, shadowy, nefarious groups of bad guys. It seems there is no end to the knowledge these people possess, to their ability to show up at just the right time with exactly the equipment or personnel they ned to thwart the plans of the hero.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the story for the most part and don't feel like I wasted a credit, but it wasn't quite the book I was hoping it would be.
The Sigma force adventures seem all the same. They always escape or find the answer in the nick of time to save the world. Unless something drastically changes in the writing of the series, this will be my last Sigma audiobook purchase.
Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
This was an interesting story line, the characters were well managed and the story itself wasn't all that easy to guess what'g going to happen next. I enjoyed the read and would recommend it to others who like this kind of fiction.
The Sigma Force series is no Cotton Malone and can not even touch the Pendergast books. If you enjoy jelly sans toast then this is the book for you.
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
Liked the science and historical aspects. I found story to be difficult to follow at times. I had to hear it twice to get smoother absorption of the plot.
If you like James Rollin's novels, I think you'll like this one. I enjoyed it, but you have to take it for what it is.
I have read all of the James Rollins books available at Audible and through the library. This one, regrettably, is a real snoozer. I have tried for months to get through the first half and just can't get interested. I will plug on, only because I have enjoyed his previous books, but don't waste your money if you are reading this review.
