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. Gray Pierce e in vacanza ma viene 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...

Ah, how this thriller captured my heart. I cried a little bit at the end, it was so beautiful and sad in some moments. The story is interesting, thrilling, adventurous and heart capturing. As always, Mr. Rollins chooses two sides in this book, one historical and one scientific and presents them extr Leggi tutto
Meh. Loved it until the whole 37 thing when it became too American Treasure for me. This worked 10 books ago, but really, James, time to write a great story vs old-timey conspiracy.
