The Bone Labyrinth (Sigma Force, 11) by James Rollins


In The Bone Labyrinth, author James Rollins has created a labyrinth that includes giant hybrid gorillas in the Beijing Zoo, the lost continent of Atlantis, the bones of Adam and Eve, the genetic source of human intelligence, lost recorded minutes of the moon landing, numerology and the Bible, and the list goes on. Truly a Gordian Knot of amazing proportions.

One of Rollins’ strengths in his Sigma Force novels is his development of a protagonist on multiple levels with multiple characters. The primary team—Director Painter Crowe, Commander Gary Pierce, Dr. Monk Kokkalis, Joe Kowalski, Captain Kathryn Bryant (Kat), and Seichen are swept into the search for the clues to mankind’s history buried deep within the human DNA. The group is forced to separate as clues draw them across the planet, with much of the activity taking place far beneath the planet.

Rollins starts out with a scene played out in 38,000 B.C.E. in the Southern Alps, as a father and daughter race to escape a “mighty enemy” that was hunting for “special ones”—hybrids born of a union between Neanderthals and homo sapiens. The daughter was such a hybrid, and her life hung in the balance. As with all of Rollins’ chapters, this introduction brings the reader to the edge of the cliff, as the father and daughter meet another tribe—one that includes many of these same hybrids. The father turns to face the onslaught from the enemy while the daughter leaves with this other tribe, leaving the reader wondering what may have befallen the girl.

Rollins deepens the mystery in the second chapter set in 1669 in the Papal States in Rome, where Father Arthanasius Kircher is introduced to a map that may hold the secrets to the existence of the bones of Adam and Eve.

Turn the page and the next scene takes the reader to a recently discovered series of caves in Croatia that house more mysteries into what Father Kircher was searching for. As young geneticist Lena Crandall and Jesuit priest, Father Roland Novak join the search into these caves, their group is attacked by a dark military force that captures the other members of the group but Crandall and Novak escape.

As the information regarding this attack reaches the director of Sigma, Painter Crowe, he informs Commander Gray Pierce and alerts him to a connection between the attack and a research center in Atlanta Georgia. That connection is Dr. Crandall’s twin sister, also a geneticist, Dr. Maria Crandall. Fearing for her safety, Sigma Force members Kowalski, Monk, and Kat are sent to Crandall’s research center where the focus of her work is with a hybrid gorilla, Baako.

A war is coming, a battle that will stretch from the prehistoric forests of the ancient past to the cutting-edge research labs of today, all to reveal a true mystery buried deep within our DNA, a mystery that will leave readers changed forever . .

In this groundbreaking masterpiece of ingenuity and intrigue that spans 50,000 years in human history, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins takes us to mankind’s next great leap.

In the remote mountains of Croatia, an archaeologist makes a strange discovery:  a subterranean Catholic chapel, hidden for centuries, holds the bones of a Neanderthal woman. In the same cavern system, elaborate primitive paintings tell the story of an immense battle between tribes of Neanderthals and monstrous shadowy figures. Who is this mysterious enemy depicted in these ancient drawings and what do the paintings mean?

Before any answers could be made, the investigative team is attacked, while at the same time, a bloody assault is made upon a primate research center outside of Atlanta. How are these events connected? Who is behind these attacks?  The search for the truth will take Commander Gray Pierce of Sigma Force 50,000 years into the past. As he and Sigma trace the evolution of human intelligence to its true source, they will be plunged into a cataclysmic battle for the future of humanity that stretches across the globe . . and beyond.

With the fate of our future at stake, Sigma embarks on its most harrowing odyssey ever—a breathtaking quest that will take them from ancient tunnels in Ecuador that span the breadth of South America to a millennia-old necropolis holding the bones of our ancestors. Along the way, revelations involving the lost continent of Atlantis will reveal true mysteries tied to mankind’s first steps on the moon. In the end, Gray Pierce and his team will face to their greatest threat: an ancient evil, resurrected by modern genetic science, strong enough to bring about the end of man’s dominance on this planet.
