Five years ago, the mysterious and inscrutable head of Effective Engineering Solutions, Eli Glinn, led a mission to recover a gigantic meteorite from a remote island off the coast of South America. The mission ended in disaster when their ship, the Rolvaag, foundered in a vicious storm in the Antarctic waters and broke apart, sinking-along with its unique cargo-to the ocean floor. One hundred and eight crew members perished, and Eli Glinn was left paralyzed.But this was not all. The tragedy revealed something truly terrifying: the meteorite they tried to retrieve was not, in fact, simply a rock. Instead, it was a complex organism from the deep reaches of space.

A very violent book with grisly descriptions of killings. The premise, a life-form coming to Earth and controlling human minds, is okay, but I despised the over-abundance of violence, which is described in gory detail. Preston and Child could easily have restricted their use of violence in favour of why the entity chose Earth on which to settle. They did not do this. NOT RECOMMENDED.

After reading that this was about a giant seed, I was not able to read further, even tho I am a big fan of Preston & Childs.
