really liked it
Read in December, 2011

I blame Dan Brown.
If you liked Dan Brown's DaVinci Code you'll like this book by James Rollins.
I enjoyed the book with the exception of the part where uh oh... I've forgotten his name, Cardinal Something-or-nother was talking. His exposition was REALLY expository and he tended to beat things to death.
The ideas were interesting and as the author suggested, it will certainly prompt further study/reading on my part.
The action was fast paced. The protagonists constantly went from frying pan to fire and fire and fire and fire again and again without too many unbelievable coincidences. There was one towards the end that I should have seen coming and once it was revealed was obviously telegraphed in hindsight as a sort of Chekov's gun. I'm not spoiling anything to say that as this isn't a Star Trek novel so you won't know who Chekov is. (My little joke there.)
I haven't read the first of the Sigma Force books but I intend to get it and any subsequent Sigma Force books. I liked the characters enough to want to know more about them.
Good fun summer read, beach book type book.
