The Devil Colony

Sigma Force Novels

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


From New York Times bestselling author James Rollins comes a novel of boundless imagination and meticulous research, a book that dares to answer a frightening question at the heart of America: Could the founding of the United States be based on a fundamental lie? The shocking truth lies hidden within the ruins of an impossibility, a lost colony of the Americas vanished in time and cursed into oblivion. A place known only as The Devil Colony

Deep in the Rocky Mountains, a gruesome discovery—hundreds of mummified bodies—stirs international attention and fervent controversy. Despite doubts about the bodies' origins, the local Native American Heritage Commission lays claim to the prehistoric remains, along with the strange artifacts found in the same cavern: gold plates inscribed with an unfathomable script.

During a riot at the dig site, an anthropologist dies horribly, burned to ashes in a fiery explosion in plain view of television cameras. All evidence points to a radical group of Native Americans, including one agitator, a teenage firebrand who escapes with a vital clue to the murder and calls on the one person who might help—her uncle, Painter Crowe, Director of Sigma Force.

To protect his niece and uncover the truth, Painter will ignite a war among the nation's most powerful intelligence agencies. Yet an even greater threat looms as events in the Rocky Mountains have set in motion a frightening chain reaction, a geological meltdown that threatens the entire western half of the U.S.

From the volcanic peaks of Iceland to the blistering deserts of the American Southwest, from the gold vaults of Fort Knox to the bubbling geysers of Yellowstone, Painter Crowe joins forces with Commander Gray Pierce to penetrate the shadowy heart of a dark cabal, one that has been manipulating American history since the founding of the thirteen colonies.

But can Painter discover the truth—one that could topple governments—before it destroys all he holds dear?

From Publishers Weekly

May 30, 2011 – A secret from the past threatens to destroy the modern world in bestseller Rollins's riveting seventh Sigma Force novel (after The Doomsday Key). While exploring a mysterious cavern full of desiccated human bodies in the Rocky Mountains of Utah, two teenage boys discover the gold-coated skull of a saber-toothed tiger atop a granite plinth. Later, after others bring this prehistoric artifact to the surface, it triggers a blast that creates a strange force that dissolves rock and eats its way into the ground, eventually unleashing a volcano. When the members of the special forces unit known as Sigma, led by Painter Crowe, investigate, they uncover a massive conspiracy that has its roots in Mormonism, Native American legends, Thomas Jefferson, and explorer Meriwether Lewis, to name just a few of the fascinating characters and scientific threads that stitch this intricate action thriller together. Rollins gets better with each book, and his position at the top of this particular subgenre remains unshaken. 10-city author tour.

Can't wait!!!

If it has Rollins' name on it, then I own it. Never let me down! Not for a second! June 21st? Goodness. Shoot me now.

James Rollins

Heck yea!! I can't wait for this next one to come out! I only wish he would write more books.

The Devil Colony

James Rollins has done it again! The latest in the Sigma Series is another can't put it down, nonstop action adventure with all the amazing science and history we've come to expect. But I must confess that it surprised even me when I broke out in a wide smile, clutching my iPad in excitement after reading the paragraph introducing our old friend, Painter Crowe. All the wonderful characters are back and the short story, The Skeleton Key is a great prelude to The Devil Colony.
i won't give particulars about the owe it to yourself to read them both and discover their secrets for yourself.
What I will say is that I hope James Rollins continues to be maniacally prolific.
We're all addicted.
