The Doomsday Key by James Rollins was published in 2009 by HarperCollins and is available at http://www.amazon.com/.
After the unexplained deaths of a famed geneticist, a Vatican archaeologist and the son of a U.S. senator, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force are thrust into a race to solve a centuries-old riddle. All three victims are marked with a Druidic pagan cross that has been burned into their flesh; the only clue that Sigma Force has. Commander Pierce, aided by two women from his past, must confront mankind's greatest threat and the clock is ticking. The group must race from Rome to Norway to England in order to solve the mystery and save millions of lives.
The Doomsday Key is a spell-binding adventure in the truest sense of the word and James Rollins has us hanging on by a thread yet again. He weaves a tale of apocalyptic proportions and combines fact with fiction in this intriguing story. The characters are stunning and the backdrop is brilliantly laid out for us to see and feel. The Doomsday Key is just a small taste of what could happen to our food supply, if money and power are left to their own devices. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to any and all fans of James Rollins and to anyone who wants to read a well written, best-selling adventure. I am giving The Doomsday Key a 4-spider rating. Pick this book up and you'll be hooked from the very first sentence.
