The Seventh Plague (Sigma Force Series) by James Rollins

If the biblical plagues of Egypt truly happened—could they happen again—on a global scale?

Two years after vanishing into the Sudanese desert, the leader of a British archeological expedition, Professor Harold McCabe, comes stumbling out, but he dies before he can tell his story. The mystery deepens when an autopsy uncovers a bizarre corruption: someone had begun to mummify the professor’s body—while he was still alive.

Professor McCabe had vanished while searching for proof of the ten plagues of Moses. And when the medical team who performed the man’s autopsy falls ill with an unknown disease, a disturbing question arises.

Are those plagues starting again?

Seeking answers, Commander Grayson Pierce and Sigma Force travel from the plague-ridden streets of Cairo, to an ancient tomb buried under the sands of the Sudan, to a remote Arctic engineering complex housing a mad genius. But time is running out to confront a threat born of the ancient past and made real by the latest science—a danger that will unleash a cascading series of plagues, culminating in a scourge that could kill all of the world’s children . . . decimating mankind forever.

I like to say that all of James Rollins books are like drinking a fine wine. Once started I savor every page! He takes you into worlds that are so believable you can hardly wait to see what happens next, but at the same time you don't want it to end. Whenever I see a new release from him, the anticipation of knowing it's going to be a great read is what keeps me coming back! Love every single book he has written! Sigma Force is the best running series out there. Definitely a must read.

Boring and totally unbelievable, hardly a page turner - hard to get into and even harder to follow - a sure cure for insomnia - Zzzzzzz

This latest installment of the Sigma Force team keeps you up late at night reading page after page when you know you should be sleeping. The cat and mouse game between Seichan and her rival was exciting and left me wanting more. When will they meet again in battle and who will survive? I can't wait for Sigma Force to go on another adventure that saves the world from itself.

It is always a pleasure to learn something. Even better when it comes from a fictional book.

Plot centers on pathological bacteria and scientific causes of biblical plagues.

I actually got introduced to James Rollins thanks to a buy two and get one free paper book sale. However, I wasn't aware the book was third in the Sigma series. But it didn't matter. I fell in love with the Sigma series. Its better to read The Sigma Force books in order. The first is Sandstorm. I have always liked the way Rollins blends, historical facts, science truths, throw in a bit of espionage and adventure, and perfectly blended into a wonder work of fiction. Like the last book, there are some interesting animals which I enjoy that addition. They fit in such a way that it just adds a bit more to the tale, in a way that humans just can't. This book connects several characters from Sandstorm, therefore bringing the Sigma Force tales full circle, which I really liked. Like all books in this series, it starts with a bang and keeps on going. It all starts with a missing scientist, a virus that is much more than what it seems, and a search for the cure that leads to several astonishing discoveries. And add two assassins to the mix, remnants of the Guild, into the mix and once again, Rollins doesn't disappoint. Can't wait for the next installment.

Rollins grabs your attention from the beginning. I am going back to start the whole series. This biblical plaque connection ties loose ends incredibly well.

The Seventh Plague by James Rollins is a very highly recommended addition to the Sigma Force series. This time Rollins takes the Sigma Force on globe-trotting investigations and confrontations as they try to prevent a world-wide threat of Biblical proportions. Rollins is guaranteed to provide bookish action/adventure junkies the escapism they crave. Professor Harold McCabe, the leader of a British archeological expedition in the Sudanese desert, dies before he can explain where he was and what he was uncovering. The professor was a believer that the plagues Moses brought down upon the Egyptians were real events and had been looking into this. An autopsy reveals that his body was in the stages of being mummified while the professor was still alive. But, when the medical team who performed the autopsy all become ill with a mysterious disease that threatens to spread across the globe, it becomes essential to discover where the professor was and what he had discovered. Painter Crowe and the Sigma Force are called in to help, but when a mysterious group destroys all evidence and the body they must try to retrace his steps. The professor's son, Rory is still missing. Jane McCabe (some reviews are calling her Jean, but my review copy calls her Jane) his daughter, and Derek Rankin, the professor's young protégé, are being protected and helping to try and solve the puzzle. Historical guests in this one include Mark Twain, Henry Morgan Stanley, Nikola Tesla, and Dr. David Livingstone. This is an exciting thrill-ride of a novel that provides plenty of action and adventure. Those who have never read any of Rollin's Sigma Force novels can jump into this one and I think they will still find it enjoyable and the perfect choice for escapism, especially on a cold winter night. Fans of the series know all the characters and at this point they are all well-developed. Expect plenty of notes about the research into a wide variety of facts, including historical and scientific, that Rollins undertook when writing The Seventh Plague. Sure, I'll concede the point that Rollin's novels may be following a formula, but even if that is true, he is one of the best around at this genre, he still adds twists and surprises, and his novels are always entertaining and compelling.

I love James Rollins books, but this was my least favorite of all the sigma series so far.....and I've read them all. I think there was maybe too much going on....too much back and forth. Hard to follow. Anxious to see what his next release brings!

I love how the author has so many parts of the story going all at once yet he writes so well that the reader doesn't get confused. This was yet another fantastic book by Rollins. Those who haven't started reading them are missing out on a rare treat. Stephanie Clanahan
