In The 6th Extinction: A Sigma Force Novel (William Morrow), a masterful epic of timeless mystery and ripped-from-the-headlines scientific intrigue, James Rollins takes mankind to its endpoint, to a fate written in rock and ice. A remote military research station broadcasts a frantic distress call that ends with a chilling message: kill us all. When soldiers arrive to investigate, they discover everyone in the lab is dead — and not just the scientists. Every living thing for 50 square miles is annihilated: every animal, plant, and insect, even bacteria. The land is completely sterile, and the blight is spreading. To prevent the inevitable, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma must decipher a threat that rises out of the distant past, a time when Antarctica was green and Earth's life balanced on a knife edge. From millennia-old secrets out of the frozen past to mysteries buried deep in the darkest jungles of today, Sigma will face its greatest challenge yet: stopping the coming extinction of mankind.

Publisher Comments:

High in the Andes, Dr. Henry Conklin discovers a 500-year-old mummy that should not be there. While deep in the South American jungle, Conklin's nephew, Sam, stumbles upon a remarkable site nestled between two towering peaks, a place hidden from human eyes for thousands of years.

Ingenious traps have been laid to ensnare the careless and unsuspecting, and wealth beyond imagining could be the reward for those with the courage to face the terrible unknown. But where the perilous journey inward ends — in the cold, shrouded heart of a breathtaking necropolis — something else is waiting for Sam Conklin and his exploratory party. A thing created by Man, yet not humanly possible. Something wondrous . . . something terrifying.

Synopsis:

In a South American jungle, a team of researchers discovers the remains of a 500-year-old Dominican monk with a cryptic message on his cross. They have stumbled across something wondrous--and terrifying. Now available in a tall Premium Edition. Reissue.

About the Author

James Rollins and Jake Ransom share many of the same passions. The author's interest in archaeology led him to amass his own Cabinet of Curiosities, which includes a 100,000-year-old mammoth tusk from China.

His New York Times bestselling books include The Last Oracle, The Judas Strain, and Black Order. James lives in Sacramento, California. An amateur spelunker and a certified scuba enthusiast, he'll often be found either underground or underwater.
