AN ANCIENT PANDEMIC CAUSING VIRUS whose origin and cure is linked to the ANGKOR WAT and the mysterious return voyage of MARCO POLO from the court of KUBLAI KHANyep it looks like another job for SIGMA FORCEThe SIGMA Force is one of the truly delicious concepts to be introduced into the popcorn eating page turning actiony spy guy thrill o rama genre PhD toting scientific brainiacs with Navy Seal kill skills and James Bond spy craft minus babes and boozedamn SIGMA is a covert ops team working under the auspices of the DOD as an agency of DARPA Defense Advance Research Projects Agency SIGMA is charged with tracking down and neutralizing threats in the form of advanced technology whether biological chemical or mechanical The threats are always large the explosions are always loud and the pace with a few exceptions I mention in my gripes is always on turbo Now in a less capable story teller s hands this Michael Baysummer blockbuster sounding novel could get out of control uickly and begin to reek of cheese Fear not because James Rollins is a very capable story teller and maintains very good command of his plot His novels are very well researched and incorporate fascinating real life historical events and mysteries which he then extrapolates from to create a wild story with enough factualhistorical background to keep suspension of disbelief possible Despite my not uite 4 star rating for reasons set forth below this is a series that I intend to continue to read as Rollins is a very compelling tale spinner and his plots are big bold and very well thought out Put simply they are both smart and a ton of fun The Judas Strain is the 4th SIGMA novel and finds the team racing against time as usual to investigate an unusual and highly contagious viral outbreak in the Indian Ocean The plague has the potential to be an extinction level event if not contained or if no cure can be found Complications arise when SIGMA s evil counterpart the GUILD shows up looking to control the plague and possibly weaponize it Of course those of you who have read previous SIGMA novels know that there is MUCH MUCH to the plot than that The story of the plague actually begins with Marco Polo s 13th Century return from China after spending 20 years in the court of Kublai Khan Marco left China with 14 ships and 600 men but when he arrived in Italy was down to 2 ships and only 18 men In his famous book of travels Marco hinted at a mysterious tragedy but refused to elaborate This historical mystery forms the jumping off point for Rollins story From there clues lead to a mysterious connection between Marco Polo and the Vatican clues written in angelic script the Hindu temple complex of Angkor Wat cannibalism piracy and lions tigers and bearsOH MY Exciting smarter than your average action thriller and containing highly engaging plot points If you are a fan of this genre you should definitely be reading this MY GRIPESFor all the love I heap on this novel there are a few issues I have that keep me from giving it a 4th star though just barely First as with many of these types of novels it is very formulaic You know pretty much what you are going to get when you pick it up Good guys win bad guy lose world is saved peace preserved and justice served Nothing horrible about that it just takes a bit of the tension out of certain aspects of the plot My biggest gripe is that I think the story should be about 150 to 200 shorter than its 550 pages by cutting out the failed attempt to flesh out the characters and provide uiet little family moments and bad romances This is one thing Rollins does not do well and yet he spends too much time trying to make it work His characters are two dimensional and for this kind of story that is just fine If he were to cut out all of the attempts to round out his characters and show they have any life outside of SIGMA he could trim this down to 350 to 400 pages of smart high octane covert action mystery with great historical background and turn this novel into a 5 star thrilltastic joy bringer Alas he doesn t and it is the extraneous stuff that Rollins does not do well that keeps me from giving this a higher rating Still the good parts are so interesting and I love the complicated historical based plots so much that I will continue happily reading the series hoping for of the same good and less of everything else 35 stars RECOMMENDED

This is the third book in the Sigma Force series that I ve read and absolutely loved James Rollins writing is historically accurate and amazingly detailed It s one of those books that draws you in from the first horrific chapter and keeps you turning pages as fast as your fingers and eyes allow Of course there are multiple things going on a historical trail and a scientific trail which ultimately converges with dire conseuences I particularly liked the inclusion of Kowalski an ex military man who is now doing security for Sigma Force He is included on the mission to provide muscle not brains but his one liners are spot on and hilarious He provided a much needed dose of comic reliefSigma has one major enemy in the war against terrorismThe Guild they are a badass outfit that is usually one step ahead of Sigma but Sigma always wins the race Guild agent Seichan shot in the gut ends up crashing her motorcycle in Commander Gray Pierce s driveway Seichan and Gray have a past and it s not a friendly one The historical trail involves Gray Seichan a Catholic priest and Kowalski reversing Marco Polo s historic journey from China and discovering the cure for a nasty bacteria that is currently killing people off the coast of Australia but which could eventually decimate the entire human population Bad guy on this leg Amen Nasser Guild operative who immediately kidnaps Gray s parents to get the upper hand The scientific trail involves Sigma operatives Lisa Cummings and Monk Kokkalis out on Christmas Island trying to find the cause of the recent plague like outbreak Bad guy here Devesh Patanjali Guild operative who has hijacked a cruise ship full of evacuees from Christmas Island to use as guinea pigs while looking for the cure so The Guild can use the disease for bio terrorism Fortunately both Lisa and Monk are on board and working against Devesh s evil

James Rollins novels generally remind me of some weird combination of Michael Crichton Dan Brown and Tom Clancy none of whom are among my favorite authors Rollins is though I love the combination of mythlegend science and intrigue The Judas Strain starts with a viral outbreak follows Marco Polo to Cambodia via an ancient manuscript and has the SIGMA team tracking terrorists on three continents If that sounds far fetched it s only because you haven t read it Rollins nearly always leaves me thinking huh What if
