From the Back Cover
The gruesome discovery of hundreds of mummified bodies deep in the Rocky Mountains—along with strange artifacts inscribed with an unfathomable script—stirs controversy and foments unrest. And when a riot at the dig site results in the horrible death of an anthropologist captured by television cameras, the government focuses its attention on an escaped teenage agitator—the firebrand niece of Sigma Force director Painter Crowe.
To protect her, Crowe will ignite a war across the nation's most powerful intelligence agencies. But the dark events have set in motion a frightening chain reaction: a geological meltdown that threatens the entire western half of the U.S. And the unearthed truth could topple governments, as Painter Crowe joins forces with Commander Gray Pierce to penetrate the shadowy heart of a sinister cabal that has been manipulating American history since the founding of the thirteen colonies.See all Product Description

Puzzles, Thomas Jefferson's secret codes, volcanoes, a secret society -- it's got it all in spades. A real page turner. This is my first book by Rollins but I definitely want to read more.
Good, pulse pounding action in a historical setting. Was the founding of the United States based on a fundamental lie? This novel is rich in native american culture, Mormonism, science and some great settings from Yellowstone National Park to Iceland.
Definitely a must read for serious thriller enthusiasts.
