      A master at combining historical and scientific intrigue with cutting-edge
      adventure, the New York Times bestselling author of Map of Bones and Black
      Order, James Rollins, returns with his most relentless, high-octane thriller to
      date--a terrifying story of an ancient menace reborn to plague the modern
      world... and of an impossible hope that lies hidden in the most shocking place
      imaginable: within the language of angels.



      From Booklist
      The crack, ultrasecret Sigma Force team returns in another adventure that,
      as usual, unfolds at breakneck speed. Sigma Force, made up of former Special
      Forces officers trained as experts in various scientific fields ("killer
      scientists," one of their number calls them), scours the world for technologies
      that could help or threaten the U.S. This time the group's mission involves a
      devastating bacteriological plague, a mysterious cryptogram that may predate
      humanity, and the deadly truth about what happened after Marco Polo's
      expedition to China. After a handful of Sigma Force novels, Rollins has fine-tuned
      the formula to precision: characters rendered in broad strokes, punchy
      dialogue, short paragraphs that propel us headlong through the story. The novels are
      like prose versions of comic books, or lightly fleshed out movie treatments.
      But this is not a criticism, at least not completely. The books' style
      perfectly matches their subject matter, and it's impossible not to be swept up by
      their energy and excitement. Action/adventure fans unfamiliar with Rollins'
      work should be emphatically urged to read this series. David Pitt
