A war is coming, a battle that will stretch from the prehistoric forests of the ancient past to the cutting-edge research labs of today, all to reveal a true mystery buried deep within our DNA, a mystery that will leave readers changed forever . . . In this groundbreaking masterpiece of ingenuity and intrigue that spans 50,000 years in human history, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins takes us to mankind’s next great leap. But will it mark a new chapter in our development . . . or our extinction? In the remote mountains of Croatia, an archaeologist makes a strange discovery:  a subterranean Catholic chapel, hidden for centuries, holds the bones of a Neanderthal woman. In the same cavern system, elaborate primitive paintings tell the story of an immense battle between tribes of Neanderthals and monstrous shadowy figures. Who is this mysterious enemy depicted in these ancient drawings and what do the paintings mean? Before any answers could be made, the investigative team is attacked, while at the same time, a bloody assault is made upon a primate research center outside of Atlanta. How are these events connected? Who is behind these attacks?  The search for the truth will take Commander Gray Pierce of Sigma Force 50,000 years into the past. As he and Sigma trace the evolution of human intelligence to its true source, they will be plunged into a cataclysmic battle for the future of humanity that stretches across the globe . . . and beyond. With the fate of our future at stake, Sigma embarks on its most harrowing odyssey ever—a breathtaking quest that will take them from ancient tunnels in Ecuador that span the breadth of South America to a millennia-old necropolis holding the bones of our ancestors. Along the way, revelations involving the lost continent of Atlantis will reveal true mysteries tied to mankind’s first steps on the moon. In the end, Gray Pierce and his team will face to their greatest threat: an ancient evil, resurrected by modern genetic science, strong enough to bring about the end of man’s dominance on this planet. Only this time, Sigma will falter—and the world we know will change forever.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“James Rollins’s best thriller ever…Packed with action, intrigue, and spine-chilling suspense. The Bone Labyrinth will remind you why you fell in love with reading. This book is that good!” Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Infused with Rollins’s trademark blend of cutting-edge science and hidden history, The Bone Labyrinth weaves together a bevy of seemingly disparate elements into a thrilling and cohesive tapestry like few others can.” Strand Magazine
“Truly a Gordian knot of amazing proportions…[The Bone Labyrinth] is breathtakingly laid out, with Rollins combining true historical figures with mythological events and an exciting fictional account of a battle for mankind.” New York Journal of Books
“Some of the discoveries may be a little over the top, but it makes for a rollicking good time as the Sigma Force operatives rush to decipher an ancient mystery, rescue scientists, and save mankind. The endearing character of a young gorilla draws an emotional response and a potent reminder of the consequences of animal experiments. The ending hints at the fate of a long-running series character, leaving one anxious for the next installment.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“By the end of the novel, readers will be too busy buzzing with excitement about all they have digested to realize what a literary feat Rollins has accomplished by keeping all these balls in the air without dropping a single one.” Bookreporter
“Rollins…knows just how to balance the science and history with the ongoing action.” Publishers Weekly
“An altogether satisfying techno-thriller.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Christian Baskous has double duty, in a way, with this story of twin sisters who are in peril on opposite ends of the earth. His narration relies on crafting accents for characters of different origins. It’s an example of supporting characters—from Chinese doctors to a helpful American associate and an Eastern European priest—being given the most interesting voices. But Baskous also must project emotion because of a special bond between Maria, one of the sisters, and Baako, a gorilla. The characters from Sigma Force nearly become secondary to the plot in this science-heavy book, which is redeemed by the relationship between Baako and Maria.” AudioFile
