If the biblical plagues of Egypt truly happened--could they happen again--on a global scale?

Two years after vanishing into the Sudanese desert, the leader of a British archeological expedition, Professor Harold McCabe, comes stumbling out, but he dies before he can tell his story. The mystery deepens when an autopsy uncovers a bizarre corruption: someone had begun to mummify the professor's body--while he was still alive.

Professor McCabe had vanished while searching for proof of the ten plagues of Moses. And when the medical team who performed the man's autopsy falls ill with an unknown disease, a disturbing question arises.

Are those plagues starting again?

Seeking answers, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force travel from the plague-ridden streets of Cairo to an ancient tomb buried under the sands of the Sudan to a remote Arctic engineering complex housing a mad genius. But time is running out to confront a threat born of the ancient past and made real by the latest science--a danger that will unleash a cascading series of plagues, culminating in a scourge that could kill all of the world's children . . . decimating humankind forever.

First book by this author for me. A little over the top and a little hard to believe. But if one likes a lot of adventure, including large weapons, dramatic pursuits and explosions, it is ok. Some interesting facts are intertwined in the plot. Very interesting about the elephants.

Not his best work. Seems after so many books he is recycling adventure and changing circumstances and places.

Good read, Rollins doesn't disappoint. A thriller wrapped in science, religion and archeology lessons and the elephants too.

Another great Rollins adventure! I most enjoyed the part about the elephants.

Dreadfully bad. In the age of Google, states that the Franklin expedition was lost in 1896 (actually 1846). Moronic.
