A sinister fire in a Copenhagen bookstore ignites a relentless hunt across four continents. Arson and murder reveal an insidious plot to steal a Bible that once belonged to Charles Darwin, the father of evolutionary theory. And Commander Gray Pierce dives headlong into a mystery that dates back to Nazi Germany...and to horrific experiments performed in a now-abandoned laboratory buried in a hollowed-out mountain in Poland. A continent away, madness ravages a remote monastery high in Nepal, as Buddhist monks turn to cannibalism and torture. Lisa Cummings, a young American doctor investigating the atrocity, is suddenly a target of a brutal assassin working for clandestine forces that want the affair buried at any cost. Lisa's only ally is a hidden pilgrim, Painter Crowe--director of SIGMA Force, an elite command of American scientists and Special Forces operatives--who is already showing signs of the baffling malady that destroyed the minds of the monks. Now it is up to Gray Pierce to save both Painter and Lisa--and a world in jeopardy--as SIGMA Force races to expose a century-old plot that threatens to destroy the current world order...and alter the destiny of humankind forever.

Entertaining and fast-paced. The plot seems to have been put together from very different pieces and made to fit almost forcefully. However, overall, it's an okay book

Reads like a Jams Brown novel.

Black Order is the third entry in Rollins Sigma Force series and is fast-paced if farfetched. Rollins begins the story in the last days World War II with a baby being saved from drowning. Rollins also refers to an experimental program performed by Nazi scientists about which nothing is known as all the scientists were shot and the equipment removed. How this relates to action in the present is fascinating.

The Sigma Force series features non-stop action, good guys who are conflicted, and truly evil bad guys. They are fun reads and Black Order is entertaining on that level.

My favorite Sigma book of his. It was very well written and it was the book that introduced me to the thriller genre. It still stands as one of my favorite books.
