Review - The Judas Strain by James Rollins
Title - The Judas Strain
Author- James Rollins
No. of Pages 447
Rating 4 out of 5
A terrible plague has arisen out of the depths of the Indian Ocean, a disease that is unknown, unstoppable, and deadly to humankind. A cruise liner which has been converted to a make shift hospital which Dr. Lisa Cummings and other Sigma operatives search for answers to the deadly affliction has been pirated by terrorists.
On the other side of the world Gray Pierce thwarts the schemes of a murderous assassin- a killer who holds the first clue to the discovery of a possible cure. Time is an enemy as Pierce and an unlikely ally are drawn into an astonishing mystery hidden deep in antiquity and in humanity’s genetic code.
James Rollins returns with another high-octane thriller. The story is fast paced keeping the reader turning the pages to find out what happens next. Rollins blends science and history in such a way that makes the story flow, intrigues the reader and provides non-stop adventure. I enjoyed this book very much and I highly recommend it to those who enjoy action-packed thrillers.
