"Every James Rollins delivers mach-speed mayhem, throat-clutching suspense, high-style adventure, and a terrific story told terrifically."
--Steve Berry, author of The Romanov Prophecy

The thriller king praised for his "edge-of-your-seat excitement" (San Francisco Chronicle), James Rollins storms the New York Times bestseller list with every novel he writes. With his latest breathtaking blockbuster, Altar of Eden, Rollins takes a breather from his Sigma Force adventures (Map of Bones, Black Order, The Judas Strain, et al) while delivering all the action, surprise, and intensity for which he's well known--and loved. Combining science, history, and breakneck suspense--and a secret tied to the Book of Genesis--Altar of Eden is sure to satisfy every James Rollins fan while winning over a slew of new converts.

Another one of those adventure novels but this one invokes a little science-fiction: genetically engineered animals and (gasp!) even humans --- ok --- homi habilis. There's the mandatory violence: machine guns, napalm, --- you know, just the regular stuff --- nothing serious. A good romp through adventure land that keeps you occupied for a few riain or the plane ride.des on the subway or on the commuter tr

Rollicking good adventure. Predictable romance element, but palatable given the other strong elements of plot and suspense. Requires a certain suspension of disbelief, but is close enough to the plausible to be instructive. Can't wait to read the next instalment by James Rollins.
