Publisher Comments:

Baghdad falls . . . and armed men are seen looting the city zoo. Amid a hail of bullets, a concealed underground lab is ransacked — and something horrific is set loose upon the world.

Seven years later, Louisiana state veterinarian Lorna Polk investigates an abandoned shipwrecked fishing trawler carrying exotic caged animals, part of a black market smuggling ring. But there is something disturbingly wrong with these beasts — each an unsettling mutation of the natural order, all sharing one uncanny trait: incredibly heightened intelligence.

Joining forces with U.S. Border Patrol Agent Jack Menard — a man who shares with her a dark and bloody past — Lorna sets out to uncover the truth about this strange cargo and the terrorist threat it poses. Because a beast escaped the shipwreck and is running amok — and what is about to be born upon the altar of Eden could threaten not only the future of the world but the very foundation of what it means to be human.

Synopsis:

Baghdad falls, and armed men are seen looting the city zoo. Amid a hail of bullets, a concealed underground lab is ransacked--and something horrific is set loose upon the world. Available in a tall Premium Edition.

Synopsis:

“Every James Rollins delivers mach-speed mayhem, throat-clutching suspense, high-style adventure, and a terrific story told terrifically.”
—Steve Berry, author of The Romanov Prophecy

The thriller king praised for his “edge-of-your-seat excitement” (San Francisco Chronicle), James Rollins storms the New York Times bestseller list with every novel he writes. With his latest breathtaking blockbuster, Altar of Eden, Rollins takes a breather from his Sigma Force adventures (Map of Bones, Black Order, The Judas Strain, et al) while delivering all the action, surprise, and intensity for which hes well known—and loved. Combining science, history, and breakneck suspense—and a secret tied to the Book of Genesis—Altar of Eden is sure to satisfy every James Rollins fan while winning over a slew of new converts.

I am a great fan of James Rollins and look forward to each of his new novels. I took his "Altar of Eden" with me on vacation and got so engrossed in it I was able to finish the book in two days. (I would have been done with it sooner but didn't want to totally neglect my hostess and other guests!) I enjoyed it because I'm interested in the ramifications of genetic engineering and love to see how Mr. Rollins serves the "bad" guys their just desserts.

I have read everything that James Rollins has put out and this was a pretty good book. I enjoyed it greatly. While it definitely wasn't as good as some of his novels it was a solid story. I loved the setting in New Orleans and the whole Crocodile situation. Rollins definitely tells a great story and he just knows how to weave in fact and fiction.
