    During a crowded service at a cathedral in Germany, armed intruders in monks' robes unleash a nightmare of blood and destruction. But the killers have not come for gold; they seek a more valuable prize: the bones of the Magi who once paid homage to a newborn savior - a treasure that could reshape the world.

    Story

    I absolutely loved this story. Full of action, mystery and intrigue. The concept of this story line is brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story as narrated by John Meagher.
    This is the first book by James Rollins I've read (listened to) and I've already added Sandstorm to my library. I've read the description of each of the followings books in this series and I can't wait to listen to each one.

    Katherine Cahill's life is shattered forever when her three young children are killed on an airplane that is blown to pieces by a terrorist bomb in the skies over Italy. Determined to make the terrorists pay for this savagery, Katherine circumvents the frustrating bureaucracy of the State Department and heads for Syria in search of their leader, Tayib.

    Overall

    I'd like to start by saying I love Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooter Series. I know this book is a sort of beginning to the next phase of the "Troubleshooters". Ok - I understand stories need to evolve to keep them fresh and interesting.
    My comments today are only about the narrator - make that TWO NARRATORS - not the story. I find them distracting, disturbing and not representing the characters in a manner in which they deserve.
    I'd like to add - I'm only 2.5 hrs into this story and I felt compelled to make this review as I'm struggling to follow the story with the flipping back and forth of the narrators and the inconsistency of the portrayal of the characters.
    They are reading the book verbatim, and barely pausing between points of view. I've had to rewind and listen again to follow.
    I've checked out the next books in this series and see TWO NARRATORS again - SIGH!!!
    This is NOT the desired way to listen to a story.

    One narrator who can handle all the characters is most desired for me.
