If you read my reviews you have probably discovered that I have very eclectic reading habits. I read Debbie Macomber one day and finished the next with James Rollin’s 6th Extinction. It is chocked full of historical and scientific data–some real–some imagined, but all very compelling–and in this one quite scary.
A military research station buried in the remote Sierra Nevada Mountains of Northern California broadcasts a terrified distress call…”The is sierra, victor, whiskey. There’s a been a breach. Failsafe initiated. No matter the outcome. Kill us…kills us all.”
When help does come they discover that everyone in indeed dead–and everything. The land itself has been destroyed and it might be spreading. Of course, there is only one team that has the expertise to help and that is Sigma headed by Commander Gray Pierce.
They use past historical clues, and cutting edge technology to decipher past mysteries to ensure we have a future.
This is a thriller, white-knuckle read. No one writes quite like Jim Rollins. At the end of the book he also describes the fiction and the fact–which I guess is pretty scary too.
