A heart-stopping SIGMA Force thriller from NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author James Rollins.When a group of parishioners is burned to death in a German cathedral, the US sends in SIGMA Force. For this tragedy is more than a case of arson - someone has stolen the priceless treasure stored in the cathedral's golden reliquary: the bones of the biblical Three Kings.Commander Gray Pierce leads a team on the hunt for the Royal Dragon Court, a clandestine aristocratic fraternity of alchemists that dates back to the Middle Ages and seeks to establish a new world order using the mystical bones.

"Your imagination is the only obsticale stoppig you enjoying a fantastic book.With a new and fevered interest in all things religious and conspirtital about the chruch and its dark history.From its opening chapter in monastery in the 13th century to the all action mission to save the modern world of today from someone else who want to rule the world.I could not put this book down.Rollins discripition of the characters and place are vivid.You would almost feel you were there in the story.For me thats reading at its best,taking us to meet people and places most of us will probably never meet.it is said that reading fuels the imagination,well this book should be renamed Plutonium.And it does exactly what is says on the tin.Enjoy"show more
