Parigi, oggi Gray Pierce, agente della Sigma, è in vacanza quando gli viene ordinato di partire immediatamente in aiuto degli archeologi in trappola. Ma ben presto capisce che la posta in gioco è molto più alta... Roma, 1669. Un soldato s’inchina al cospetto di padre Athanasius Kircher, uno dei più autorevoli sapienti del mondo. Gli consegna una mappa, una scheggia d'osso e un messaggio. Poi si suicida. Perché nessuno possa estorcergli con l'inganno o la tortura il suo terribile segreto. Croazia, oggi. Quando la paleoantropologa Lena Crandall s'inoltra in un complesso di grotte appena riportate alla luce da un terremoto, capisce di essere di fronte a una scoperta eccezionale: alcune elaboratissime pitture rupestri che raffigurano uomini e animali minacciati da enormi sagome inquietanti. Chi – o cosa – sono quelle figure? Prima di riuscire a porsi altre domande, però, un nuovo sisma fa tremare la terra, imprigionando lei e il suo gruppo nell'oscurità. Parigi, oggi. A Gray Pierce non capita spesso di potersi prendere una vacanza. E infatti viene subito richiamato in servizio dalla Sigma Force per soccorrere il team della dottoressa Crandall. Ma quella missione di salvataggio si trasformerà ben presto in una sfida mortale contro un nemico sfuggente e antichissimo, che rischia di essere oltre le sue possibilità. Perché se Gray non riuscirà a fermare quella forza distruttrice, la vita sulla Terra potrebbe cambiare per sempre. O finire nel silenzio.

A remote military research station sends out a frantic distress call, ending with a chilling final command: Kill us all! Personnel from the neighboring base rush in to discover everyone already dead-and not just the scientists, but every living thing for fifty square miles is annihilated: every animal, plant, and insect, even bacteria. The land is entirely sterile-and the blight is spreading. To halt the inevitable, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma must unravel a threat that rises out of the distant past, to a time when Antarctica was green and all life on Earth balanced upon the blade of a knife. Following clues from an ancient map rescued from the lost Library of Alexandria, Sigma will discover the truth about an ancient continent, about a new form of death buried under miles of ice. From millennia-old secrets out of the frozen past to mysteries buried deep in the darkest jungles of today, Sigma will face its greatest challenge to date: stopping the coming extinction of mankind. But is it already too late?

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.

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 Eye of God, a Sigma Force novel, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins delivers an apocalyptic vision of a future predicted by the distant past. In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy—and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin. At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long dead Mongol king Genghis Khan. Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force set out to discover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery going back to the birth of Christianity, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity.
