    Pia Grazdani, the embattled medical student from Death Benefit, decides to take a year off from her medical studies and escape New York City. Intrigued by the promise of the burgeoning field of medical technology and the chance to clear her head, Pia takes a job at Nano, LLC, a lavishly funded, security-conscious nanotechnology insititute in the picturesque foothills of the Rockies. Nano, LLC is ahead of the curve in the competitive world of molecular manufacturing, including the construction of microbivores, tiny nano-robots with the ability to gobble up viruses and bacteria. But the corporate campus is a place of secrets.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    11 hours of listening only to have absolutely nothing resolved and see the ending fall flat on its face. Even if there is a sequel, not enough here to spend time listening. I have never asked for my money back, but I am now. Don't waste your money on this one.


    What was most disappointing about Robin Cook’s story?

    He forgot to make one.


    What three words best describe George Guidall’s performance?

    good as always

    A remote military research station sends out a frantic distress call, ending with a chilling final command: Kill us all! Personnel from the neighboring base rush in to discover everyone already dead - and not just the scientists, but every living thing for 50 square miles is annihilated: every animal, plant, and insect, even bacteria. The land is entirely sterile - and the blight is spreading. To halt the inevitable, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma must unravel a threat that rises out of the distant past.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Let me think.... Never let this narrator perform another book again!


    What could James Rollins have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Tough question.... PICK ANOTHER NARRATOR!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Better question... How didn't the narrator detract from this book?


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narrator was so bad I literally could not listen for one more second as my head is pounding from his horribly overly dramatic monotone performance.


    Any additional comments?

    Please pay attention to the reviews. I choose not to and am paying the price for not doing so myself. I love Sigma Force stories and do not have time to read, so I am left with audio as my only choice. If Rollins decides to keep using this narrator, I will be forced to end my listen with this book. I forced myself to listen for 4 hours and no matter how I tried, could not find any way to make this book enjoyable. The narrator delivers every line as if he is doing Shakespeare with over the top dramatics. And as if that was not enough, he is severely limited in his vocals and after 4 hrs I still had no clue what was happening as I could not distinguish between any characters making the listen impossible to follow. This book literally gave me a migraine. No one should have to put that much effort into an audio book to try and figure out what is going on. I can not comment on the story as I had to put all my energy into just trying to figure out what person was speaking. In doing so, I found myself not really listening to a word that was being said. In summary:

    Too dramatic
    Impossible to tell characters apart
    Horrible narrator
    Buy if you want a migraine
    If you read... Get the book and don't waste your time.
