THE DEVIL COLONY
Rollins takes esoteric information and makes it easy to understand while serving up a first-class, breathtaking adventure that will have readers whizzing through the pages. The only thing wrong with this tale: it has to end.
When teenagers stumble across mummified bodies in the Rocky Mountains, the Native American Heritage Commission claims them and the other strange artifacts found in the cave. A riot, an explosion and a radical Native American group prompt a defiant teenager in over her head to call her uncle, Painter Crowe, the director of Sigma. Utilizing every tool in his considerable arsenal, Painter and his crew travel around the Southwest, Iceland, Fort Knox and Yellowstone Park to find out if a mysterious group has been manipulating the country’s history since the founding of the 13 colonies. Or were there 14? That’s only one of the questions Sigma has to answer to avoid an apocalypse. (MORROW, Jul., 496 pp., $27.99)
