Two years after vanishing into the Sudanese desert, Professor Harold McCabe comes stumbling out of the sands, but he dies before he can tell his story. Then an autopsy uncovers a bizarre corruption: someone had begun to mummify the professor's body—while he was still alive.
Subsequently, the medical team who had performed the man's autopsy has fallen ill with an unknown disease. Fearing the worst, a colleague of the professor reaches out to Painter Crowe, the director of Sigma Force. The call is urgent, for Professor McCabe had vanished into the desert while searching for proof of the ten plagues of Moses. As the pandemic grows, a disturbing question arises. Are those plagues starting again?
To unravel a secret going back millennia, Director Crowe and Commander Grayson Pierce will be thrust to opposite sides of the globe. As the global crisis grows ever larger, Sigma Force will confront a threat born of the ancient past and made real by the latest science—a danger that will unleash a cascading series of plagues, culminating in a scourge that could kill all of the world's children…decimating humankind forever.

I Really Wanted to Get Passed the Narration
I love James Rollins books and have read or listened to most of them. Rollins always provides an interesting ride, and I appreciate the research that is evident in his novels. The Seventh Plague is a good example of that. The debate over whether or not the biblical plagues actually occurred and the Egyptian cultural/history are evidently well researched. The characters are also developed well. However, the narrator seemed to either not understand or not be interested in the story. In my 40+ audio books, I have listened to some extremely talented narrators. I wish I could say that this one is among them because this is a very good, fascinating book. However, life is too short to listen to boring narrators.

Good story...narration...not so much
What did you love best about The Seventh Plague?
The science, as always is intriguing.
Action is intense and compelling.
What other book might you compare The Seventh Plague to and why?
Most any other James Rollins novel...The man has a formula for his writing and it works very well.
Would you be willing to try another one of Christian Baskous’s performances?
Not by choice, no. The accents were off-putting. Kind a Texas by way of London vibe to a lot of them and it distracted from the story a great deal at points.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The last time the plagues were set loose - a nation fell. This time it may be the world.
Any additional comments?
Loved the author, writing and series characters.
The narration though...it distracted from the enjoyment of the story.
