i have a new idol. JAMES ROLLINS
he's an amazing writer able to blend action thriller, science and historical mystery with plausibility in our modern age. i especially like his Sigma stories. Gray Pierce, Painter Crowe and Monk Kokkalis are alive to me as my next door neighbors.
it started with Map of Bones. then The Black Order, The Judas Strain and most recently, The Last Oracle. i cried when they found Monk alive again in Russia. their friendship struck a cord in me.
so far my favorite is still Map of Bones but then again we always have a special place in our hearts for "firsts."
i look forward to joining them in their next adventure.
