Fiction Short Take: The Seventh Plague – James Rollins

There are some novelists who hit the bestseller list so consistently it’s easy to start to take them for granted. So as a corrective, let me note that Rollins’ latest novel will not no doubt land on the bestseller list–it gets a boxed, starred review in PW and a starred Booklist review. These are brainy, action-filled adventures by a master.

Bestseller Rollins’s epic 12th Sigma Force adventure features exotic locales, heroic quests, quixotic villains, action galore, and enough science and scientific curiosities to titillate even casual readers…Rollins’s characters are as large as his landscape in this vast and vastly entertaining thriller saga.”
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The vanished leader of a British archaeological expedition appears and then dies before he can reveal where he has been and what has happened. The evidence from the professor’s autopsy shows that he was mummified while still alive….The professor, we learn, had been researching the biblical 10 plagues of Egypt….The intensity never lets up for a second as the narrative unfurls. When it comes to the blending of action, adventure, history, and science, there is no other author who does it better than Rollins. Fans of Clive Cussler, Steve Berry, and Michael Crichton should already have Rollins on their mandatory reading list.”
