I read that James Rollins grew up on Doc Savage, the bronze tinted pulp hero of brains and brawn who trotted the globe fighting some very weird forms of evil with a group of eccentric specialists. In reading his latest Sigma Force book, Bloodline , it comes as no surprise.
Rollins introduces us to two events right off the bat. One takes place in the year with a female member of The Knights Templar as she comes to the bloody end of a quest. The other brings us up to the present as an assassin prepares to take out the President in four days.
The killer is Sigma Team commander Grey Pierce. We are then plunged into a Sigma Force mission. To help track her down they take on Captain Tucker Wayne, his army dog Kane , and a former Somali pirate.
Rollins never lets these fantastic elements become over the top or cheesey. He creates a bed of actual science, history, theory, and traditional legend for them to grow from. That said, Rollins is in the business of providing wonder and adventure. His characters are colorful, locations exotic, and his writing has a smooth visceral feel I really enjoyed.
