Lisa Cummings, an American doctor investigating the atrocity, is suddenly a target of a brutal assassin. And Lisa's only ally is Painter Crowe, director of SIGMA Force, who already shows signs of the baffling malady.

Liked this one better than the second book in the series. There were a few points where the science got a little too sciency for my understanding and I found myself skipping past some of the quantum stuff. ( )

Blurb from the cover:

In Copenhagen…a suspicious bookstore fire propels Commander Gray Pierce on a relentless hunt across four continents – and into a terrifying mystery surrounding horrific experiments once performed in a now-abandoned laboratory buried in a hollowed-out mountain in Poland.

In the mountains of Nepal…in a remote monastery, Buddhist monks inexplicably turn to cannibalism and torture – while Painter Crowe, director of Sigma Force, begins to show signs of the same baffling, mind-destroying malady…and Lisa Cummings, a dedicated American doctor, becomes the target of a brutal, clandestine assassin.

Now only Gray Pierce and Sigma Force can save a world suddenly in terrible jeopardy. Because a new order is on the rise – an annihilating nightmare growing at the heart of the greatest mystery of all: the origin of life.

My review:

Black Order is the third book in the Sigma Force series, and truthfully, the hardest one for me to get through. I enjoyed the first two books in the series for various reasons, but I found myself dragging myself through Black Order. The plot of the story (basically tracking down the creation and use of a machine that can create a perfect specimen) was interesting, but it was pretty long winded. There were also three locations through most of the book, and it wasn't until close to the last 100 pages that it all seemed to come together.

Like in the previous two books, Rollins does a fantastic job of showing the extent of research that he puts into his writing. At no point was I confused or needed further explanation of what science topic he was discussing. That being said, at times it did seem like the explanations turned into doctoral papers.

I was happy to see all of my favorite characters from the first two books come together in this one. I know it is stated that you do not need to read the books in order, however I do see the benefit of doing so, and I would highly encourage anyone interested in the books to read them in order. The character development and their deeper story lines carried through and I as a reader have become invested in them.

While this was not my favorite book by Rollins, I did still enjoy the adventure that he wrote and will continue on to read the next book in the series. ( )

Ok - this was way more science than I can usually handle, but the action and pace of the novel was fantastic. The flipping back and forth between Gray and Painter was great, and kept you reading and reading and reading. ( )

En Copenhague, el sospechoso incendio de una libreria lleva al Comandante Gray Pierce en una implacable caza a traves de cuatro continentes y un aterrador misterio que rodea a horribles experimentos que se estan llevando a cabo en un laboratorio abandonado enterrado en el hueco de salida de montaña en Polonia. En las montañas de Nepal, en un remoto monasterio, monjes budistas, inexplicablemente, a su vez, practican el canibalismo y la tortura, mientras que Crowe Pintor, director de Sigma Fuerza, comienza a mostrar los mismos signos extraños... Ahora solo Gray Pierce y Sigma Force pueden salvar al mundo de la terrible amenaza que lo rodea.

Epígrafe
O fato de a evolução ser a espinha dorsal da biologia, e de a biologia estar, portanto, na situação peculiar de ser uma ciência fundamentada numa teoria não provada, faz dela, então, uma ciência ou uma fé?

Charles Darwin

A ciência sem religião é manca, a religião sem a ciência é cega.

Albert Einstein

Quem diz que eu não estou sob a proteção especial de Deus?

Adolf Hitler
