Map of Bones (Sigma Force, Bk 2)
Map of Bones - Sigma Force, Bk 2
Author: James Rollins
This novel about an ancient secret society and the race to find priceless antiquities is sure to be compared to Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, but, in every way, it's a much better book. Where Brown's best-seller was predictable despite its compelling premise, this tale is clever and suspenseful. Where Code featured ropey di...  more »

Wow! This novel grabbed me the scruff of the neck from the first paragraph and never let go! James Rollins is at his best right here. The non-stop action and the tension build and build until the very end. Rollins has a talent for making even the most obscure scientific information easy to understand. You don't feel like you are being lectured or talked down to. The research involved is immense, and the rich descriptions of chapels, churches and temples is wonderful.
It's a true treasure hunt, with riddles wrapped in clues. This is a wonderful ride, fast and furious, and Rollins takes you right along for the ride!

What a wonderful book. The only thing that kept me from giving it a total five stars was I'm not familiar with the Catholic church and some of the places were a little hard for me to follow. But it's well-written, I was able to visualize the action scenes easily and the concept is just absolutely fascinating.

This was a fast reading, action packed adventure along the lines of the DaVinci Code or National Treasure. Believable characters, a plausible storyline that was interesting and only kind of 'out there'. You could really lose yourself in this book, I loved how it switched in and out on characters quickly, it really built up the suspense. Fun read!

This is a book that I could not put down. It started a little slow, maybe for about 40 pages, but then the other 400 had you in it's grip. Very plausible story line, with enough twist and turns to make even the most adept mystery sleuth shaking his/her head. I read this book in two days, and wished for more. Presently reading another work by this author and definitely going to look for more.

Typical Rollins...action, spark of romance, lots of men beating each other, killing each other...there are entire pages I skipped over because of graphic violence. The basic story line is interesting though.

This author gives Dan Brown a run for his money in this genre.Some of the situations were a bit of a stretch of the imagination, but very enjoyable read never the lrss.
