The Judas Strain

Sigma Force Novels

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

Description

From the depths of the Indian Ocean, a horrific plague has arisen to devastate humankind—unknown, unstoppable . . . and merely a harbinger of the doom that is to follow.

Operatives of the shadowy covert organization Sigma Force, Dr. Lisa Cummings and Monk Kokkalis search for answers to the bizarre affliction aboard a cruise liner transformed into a makeshift hospital. But a sudden and savage attack by terrorist hijackers turns the mercy ship into a floating bio-weapons lab.

Time is an enemy as a worldwide pandemic grows rapidly out of control. As the seconds tick closer to doomsday, Sigma’s commander, Gray Pierce, must join forces with the beautiful assassin who tried to kill him—following the trail of the most fabled explorer in history into the terrifying heart of an astonishing mystery buried deep in antiquity and in humanity’s genetic code.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 04, 2007 – The special-ops trained scientists of Sigma Force battle the criminals of the shadowy Guild in bestseller Rollins's lively third Sigma Force thriller (after Black Order). An ancient and deadly plague, the Judas Strain (which afflicted Marco Polo), has suddenly re-emerged. Gray Pierce, a Sigma operative, and Seichan, a Guild defector, pursue clues to the nature of the plague to the Vatican, Istanbul (with a fine shootout in the Hagia Sophia mosque), Marco Polo's tomb and, finally, Cambodia's Angkor Wat. Meanwhile, Guild members hijack a cruise ship full of plague victims (to provide experimental subjects for the weaponizing of the plague), and Gray's parents are taken hostage (though the senior Grays prove feistier than their kidnappers reckon). Sophisticated the plot isn't, but Rollins includes more than enough action and suspense to keep readers turning pages. 8-city author tour.

Customer Reviews

Great read

Familiar characters, but a new great adventure. Be swept away by the fast paced action and drama, but learn the lesson that humans are not the most powerful force on this planet...it is the planet itself.

Great story

Easily the best of the Sigma Force series that I've read so far.

A fun read!

As I plowed through this book I thought to myself this is my favorite sigma series book so far...then I hit the last hundred pages and it seemed to stretch its believability a little bit much for me. Although in the afterward he sates what was based on fact and what was fiction there was a lot more fact here than I thought. I would rate this just below Black Order and just above Sandstorm. I'd give it 3 1/2 if they'd let me.
