Description: During a crowded service at a cathedral in Germany, armed intruders in monks' robes unleash a nightmare of blood and destruction. But the killers have not come for gold; they seek a more valuable prize: the bones of the Magi who once paid homage to a newborn savior . . . a treasure that could reshape the world. With the Vatican in turmoil, SIGMA Force leaps into action. An elite team of scientific and Special Forces operatives under the command of Grayson Pierce and accompanied by Lieutenant Rachel Verona of Rome's carabinieri, they are pursuing a deadly mystery that weaves through sites of the Seven Wonders of the World and ends at the doorstep of an ancient, mystical, and terrifying secret order. For there are those with dark plans for the stolen sacred remains that will alter the future of humankind . . . when science and religion unite to unleash a horror not seen since the beginning of time. The bones lead to ancient mysteries and present-day terror . . . To follow them means death.

"Map of Bones" is an action packed thriller that kept me up too late reading and then kept me awake thinking. This is a definite "can't put down" book. The story sucks you in, the action keeps you interested and the thrills will rattle your heart. If you're like me and love a good scary thrill, pick up this book!

What a fun read this was! Non-stop from the beginning. I don't think I put the book down for 3 days. Great characters, great plot and just an all around fun page turner.

I agree with an earlier reviewer, this is the best James Rollins yet (Even better than sand storm which was very good). For mixing thrills, adventure, and mystery Rollins is a master and he is at his best with "Map of Bones". The story starts when an army of masked intruders invade a service at a cathedral in Colone Germany. Dressed in monks clothes they gun down worshipers and clergy in a horrifying blood bath. They have not come for the chuches treasures of artwork or gold, but for the bones of the three Maji who once payed homage to the baby Jesus. withthis prize they plan to change the world!

The Vatican is shocked, unsure of how to react. A secret arm of the US defense department is called in to try and unravel the mystery behind the stolen bones. The investigators are lead into an unknow world of ancient secrets and terrifying realities not seen since the begining of time. Imagine this novel as a cross between the Da vinci Code, Cussler's dirk pitt novels, and the best of Tom Clancy. If you like adventure this is the book for you! And if you like this book you better check out "A Tourist in the Yucatan." Amazing thriller/adventure!A Tourist In The Yucatan

I just finished this book and it was great. Very suspenseful and kept me on the edge of my seat to the very last page. I have read some of the other historical fiction type books(Da Vinci-Angels and Demons-The Templar Legacy) and this ranks right up at the top. A trek all through the mediterranean and history too. Great read for the summer pick this on up you wont be disapointed and might learn a few things too.

Excellent book! Rollins comes at you with a dizzying pace and almost overwhelming information. After 20 pages you adjust to his speed and data ... and you enjoy the ride! This is a modern thriller with obvious comparisons to The DaVinci Code. Three American intelligence operatives and two Italians (priest and niece) form an unlikely and tight partnership to thwart an ancient religious order from gaining an ultimate prize. Perhaps this is a optimistic view of our 21st century, a harmonious blend of science and spirituality, history and technology, religion and government agents across borders. A high point is Rollins' use of a loyal team of five very diverse people devoted to one another and their mission.

This is a fine read!
