OrangeReviewStarA remote California military research station broadcast a distress call with the message "Kill Us All!" A young park ranger and her dog flee the cloud of toxic gas spreading over the countryside meant to kill whatever was released from the lab. Every living thing in a 50 square mile radius is dead, and the blight is spreading. In their tenth outing (after The Eye of God), the Sigma Force must decipher the threat and find a remedy before the blight destroys all life on Earth. From the strange underground ecosystems in the rivers and caves far under the ice of Antarctica to a tepui (a table-top mountain, or mesa) in the rainforests of Brazil, where a crazed ecologist seeks to help mankind's extermination along in his lab, the team race to find the key to reversing the damage before it's too late.
VERDICT Best-selling author Rollins has again crafted an excellent nail-biting thriller that all action adventure readers will love. Rollins always provides author notes with the science and historical facts behind his stories, and the creatures the team encounter are frighteningly possible!
