    An earthquake in Masada, Israel, kills hundreds and reveals a tomb buried in the heart of the mountain. A trio of investigators - Sergeant Jordan Stone, a military forensic expert; Father Rhun Korza, a Vatican priest; and Dr. Erin Granger, a brilliant but disillusioned archaeologist - are sent to explore the macabre discovery, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body of a mummified girl. But a brutal attack at the site sets the three on the run, thrusting them into a race to recover what was once preserved in the tomb's sarcophagus: a book rumored to have been written by Christ's own hand....

    Would you try another book from James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell and/or Christian Baskous?

    I didn't like it at all. I've always been a big fan of James Rollins, will not read any more collaborations.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Michael Palmer's latest.


    Which character – as performed by Christian Baskous – was your favorite?

    None in this book, which is not typical.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was angry that it was not the intelligent, action adventure I've come to expect from James Rollins, this was just another vampire book and not a particularly good one.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope James Rollins goes back to Sigma Force with intelligent, capable, multi-talented real people in interesting quests.

    Spur Award-winner Craig Johnson has garnered critical acclaim for his Walt Longmire mysteries. In this riveting seventh entry, Wyoming’s Absaroka County sheriff, Walt Longmire, is pushed beyond his limits. When three hardened convicts escape FBI custody in a mountain blizzard, an armed psychopath leads them up Big Horn Mountain. As Longmire struggles to track their treacherous ascent, he’ll need all the help he can get from the tribal spirits of the towering summit.
