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.

About the Author

James Rollins and his new protagonist, 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 has a doctorate in veterinary medicine and his own practice in Sacramento, California. An amateur spelunker and a certified scuba enthusiast, he'll often be found either underground or underwater.

The book is fascinating...what always draws me in with James Rollins is the excitement of getting done with the book and reading the section at the end that explains what is real and researched and what he has taken a bit of liberty with. James Rollins would be my pick to take some very interesting and exciting history courses from. While much of his story is unbelievable at times Rollins has made me sit back and think about the possibilities.
