a great thriller from James Rollins
I love James Rollins books! This has an unexpected ending, which I liked.
Due to the worldwide earthquakes, many impossibilities have surfaced...literally. There are many things happening around the world and all are connected. It is Jack Kirkland's duty to figure out the strange occurences and the seeming conspiracy of the plane crash.
Jack is an ex navy SEAL who has been off the charts for ten years when his vessel is called back to duty. Air Force One has crashed and the President is presumed dead. Jack's ship is needed in the Pacific Islands for salvage duty. He finds very strange things under the sea including hieroglyphics. His fiercest enemy, David Spangler is in charge of the military's investigation and will do whatever it takes to have revenge on Jack for his sisters death. The animosity between these two really provides some great conflict and fabulous storyline intertwined with the disaster, the coverup and the recovery efforts.
While exploring the Dragons, an island that surfaced due to the earthquakes, Karen and Miyuki are attacked and forced inside the pyramids. Strange hieroglyphics are discovered and after taking pictures they are forced to flee for their lives. Exhaustive internet searches connect them with Jack's ship and then the fun really begins.
James Rollins books always remind me of Dirk Pitt from Clive Cussler. This one was wonderful and totally unrealistic but fun nonetheless.
