Poi si suicida. Quale terribile segreto muore con lui? Croazia, oggi Un terremoto riporta alla luce un sistema di grotte sconosciuto. Una squadra di archeologi si avventura in quel labirinto e fa una scoperta inquietante, ma poi rimane intrappolata da una frana. È un incidente o un sabotaggio? 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 war is coming, a battle that will stretch from the prehistoric forests of the ancient past to the cutting-edge research labs of today, all to reveal a true mystery buried deep within our DNA, a mystery that will leave readers changed forever . . . In this groundbreaking masterpiece of ingenuity and intrigue that spans 50,000 years in human history, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins takes us to mankind’s next great leap. But will it mark a new chapter in our development . . . or our extinction? In the remote mountains of Croatia, an archaeologist makes a strange discovery: a subterranean Catholic chapel, hidden for centuries, holds the bones of a Neanderthal woman. 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. As he and Sigma trace the evolution of human intelligence to its true source, they will be plunged into a cataclysmic battle for the future of humanity that stretches across the globe . . . and beyond. With the fate of our future at stake, Sigma embarks on its most harrowing odyssey ever—a breathtaking quest that will take them from ancient tunnels in Ecuador that span the breadth of South America to a millennia-old necropolis holding the bones of our ancestors. 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 end, Gray Pierce and his team will face to their greatest threat: an ancient evil, resurrected by modern genetic science, strong enough to bring about the end of man’s dominance on this planet. Only this time, Sigma will falter—and the world we know will change forever.

An inexplicable explosion rocks the antiquities collection of a London museum—a devastating blast that sets off alarms in clandestine organizations around the world, as the race begins to determine how it happened, why it happened, and what it means. Lady Kara Kensington's family paid a high price in money and blood to found the gallery that now lies in ruins. And her search for answers is about to lead Kara and her friend Safia al-Maaz, the gallery's brilliant and beautiful curator, into a world they never dreamed actually existed. For new evidence exposed by the tragedy suggests that Ubar, a lost city buried beneath the Arabian desert, is more than mere legend . . . and that something astonishing is waiting there. Two extraordinary women and their guide, the international adventurer Omaha Dunn, are not the only ones being drawn to the desert. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Painter Crowe, a covert government operative and head of an elite counterespionage team, is hunting down a dangerous turncoat, Crowe's onetime partner, to retrieve the vital information she has stolen. And the trail is pointing him toward Ubar. But the many perils inherent in a death-defying trek deep into the savage heart of the Arabian Peninsula pale before the nightmarish secrets to be unearthed at journey's end. What is hidden below the sand is more than a valuable relic of ancient history. It is an ageless power that lives and breathes—an awesome force that could create a utopia or tear down everything humankind has built during millennia of civilization. Many lives have already been destroyed by ruthless agencies dedicated to guarding its mysteries and harnessing its might. And now the end may be at hand for Safia, for Kara, for Crowe, and for all the interlopers who wish to expose its mysteries, as it prepares to unleash the most terrible storm of all . . .
