Listening to the excellent narration was a pleasure. (However, I kept thinking I was following Alex Cross, not Agent Pierce.)
The story is interesting, but not compelling. The bad-guys are bad, but not interesting. The good-guys are predictable, but not too bright.
All in all it is a good time. I suggest you stop listening before the Epilogue.

I like longer books because I spend a lot of time in my car and these listens help pass the time. This story would have been better if it were shorter. The references to the time of day also started to drive me batty after a while. The characters were also a bit of a stretch. But this is fiction and the story was tolerable. Don't know that I'd listen to this again, but if you like yarns with biological intrigue, this is probably worth your time.
This is an excellent book! It is full of action, twists and turns. Worth the money. Rollins also reminds us that the creatures we cannot see can be the scariest. Highly recommended!
This is one of the best, if not the best mysteries I have ever read. Every time I think I know what is going to happen, I am wrong. A absolute must read. You will not be disappointed.
All of our favorite characters from Sigma Force are here in another adventure to save the world. Twists and unexpected turns are the norm and are never predictable! Love this book. But then I love all James Rollins's books.
Fantastic premise and overall a diverting read except for the author's annoying use of the word "still" over and over and over throughout to indicate counterpoint. "Still, Monk couldn't help but feel ..." " Still, Gray wasn't sure ..." Now that I've mentioned it to you, you'll start counting the number of times he uses it. And there were numerous places where I (a fantasy and sci fi fan no less) could simply not suspend my disbelief and laughed out loud at the absurdity. And what's with the hand SOS thing at the end? That was a preposterous way to leave open for a sequel I suppose.
