In Altar of Eden, James Rollins leaves behind his Sigma Force stories to send the reader into action and adventure from the bayous of Louisiana to private Caribbean islands. The story begins with a shipwreck where the Border Guards find a cargo of animals--not just any animals, but a saber tooth tiger cub , a parrot without feathers, and more. Missing, however, is the cub's mother. Where is she and where did these bizarre creatures come from? Now the thrills begin!
Rollins, a veterinarian by training, draws upon that knowledge to tell this story that delves into viruses, fractal science and genetic engineering. The story is a thrill a minute and the Cajun characters are captivating. Highly Recommended. SH
