Publisher Description

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.

But will it mark a new chapter in our development . . . or our extinction?

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.

Only this time, Sigma will falter—and the world we know will change forever.

James Rollins’ ‘The Bone Labyrinth’ Is A Unique Thriller You Won’t Want To Miss

From the first sentence, “we shouldn’t be here”(13) until the very last, the reader continues to “wonder about everything” (462) in James Rollins latest novel, The Bone Labyrinth.

Rollins utilizes elements of science, archaeology, history, and religion in his brilliant adventure novel that seeks to answer the mystery of the Great Leap Forward. The intricate story line also introduces readers to a gorilla named Baako, a test subject who assists geneticists; and twin sisters Lena and Maria Crandall who seek to understand human intelligence in Georgia.

Meanwhile, an old cave system rich in Paleolithic fossilized remains and artifacts is discovered in Croatia. When an attack is made on this site by China, Neanderthal remains are stolen and scientists are kidnapped. Are these two separate incidences connected? How is China involved? Rollins leads the reader on a roller coaster ride unlike anything I have ever experienced before.

Although I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Bone Labyrinth and meeting the novel’s diverse cast of characters, it was Baako who stole my heart. Rollins paints Baako’s nature in such an inquisitive and affectionate way that I completely forgot he was a gorilla. All I felt within my heart was Baako should be free. Therefore, by the end of the novel I was hardly surprised when I felt tears running down my face. Obviously, I commend Rollins for being the masterful storyteller he is, and for eliciting this kind of response from me.

I urge one and all to read James Rollins’ The Bone Labyrinth, a truly unique novel that is as thoughtful and moving as it is a pulse-pounding rush to read. Once again, Rollins proves why his novels continue to perch at the top of the bestseller lists. Bravo!
