Présentation de l'éditeur

High in the Andes, Dr. Henry Conklin discovers a 500-year-old mummy that should not be there. While deep in the South American jungle, Conklin's nephew, Sam, stumbles upon a remarkable site nestled between two towering peaks, a place hidden from human eyes for thousands of years.

Ingenious traps have been laid to ensnare the careless and unsuspecting, and wealth beyond imagining could be the reward for those with the courage to face the terrible unknown. But where the perilous journey inward ends--in the cold, shrouded heart of a breathtaking necropolis--something else is waiting for Sam Conklin and his exploratory party. A thing created by Man, yet not humanly possible. Something wondrous . . . something terrifying.

Douglas Preston, co-author with Lincoln Child of THE ICE LIMIT

From the opening scene high in the Andes to the stunning finish, Excavation is a real page turner.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

JAMES ROLLINS is the New York Times bestselling author of international thrillers, translated into more than forty languages. His Sigma series has been lauded as one of the "top crowd pleasers" (New York Times) and one of the "hottest summer reads" (People Magazine). In each novel, acclaimed for its originality, Rollins unveils unseen worlds, scientific breakthroughs, and historical secrets--and he does it all at breakneck speed and with stunning insight.

James Rollins decided to become a writer as a boy immersed in the scientific adventures of Doc Savage, the wonders of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, and pulps such as The Shadow, The Spider, and The Avenger. He honed his storytelling skills early, spinning elaborate tales that were often at the heart of pranks played on his brothers and sisters.

Although his talent emerged and grew, writing was not James' original profession. Before he would set heroes and villains on harrowing adventures, he embarked on a career in veterinary medicine, graduating from the University of Missouri and establishing a successful veterinary. This hands-on knowledge of medicine and science helps shape the research and scientific speculation that set James Rollins books apart.

The exotic locales of James Rollins novels have emerged as a hybrid between imagination, research, and James' extensive travels throughout the United States and Europe, as well as New Zealand, the South Pacific, China, Southeast Asia, Africa, Australia, and South America. Recent travel includes book tours and stops across the country and several European nations to meet readers and give talks, seminars, and media interviews.

In recent years, much of James' travel has involved meeting readers in small and large groups, at writing and fan conferences, and even aboard seagoing "seminars." James' mentoring temperament and coaching skills have made him a sought-out writing instructor and guest speaker for workshops, symposia, conventions, and other forums throughout the country. He is among the core faculty of the annual Maui Writer's Conference and Retreat.

James Rollins is the author of seven thrillers in the bestselling Sigma Force series (Sandstorm, Map of Bones, Black Order, The Judas Strain, The Last Oracle, The Doomsday Key, and The Devil Colony, Bloodline); six individual adventure thrillers; the blockbuster movie novelization, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull; and the Jake Ransom middle grade series (Jake Ransom and the Skull King's Shadow, Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx, and more coming in 2013). The ninth Sigma Force adventure, The Eye of God, is coming in Summer 2013.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Incan Sanctuary 21 juin 2005
Par Joshua Koppel - Publié sur Amazon.com
In Rollins's second novel, we join an archeological expedition on a dig at an ancient Incan site. As the story opens it is revealed that a mummy found at the site is actually a Spanish priest. The news of this discovery sets many powerful wheels in motion; the first of which causes a collapse of the dig and the entrapment of many of the crew.

As the crew tries to escape from the dig and the digs head mounts a rescue, we begin a journey that takes us through history, Incan legends, secret societies, and plenty of action and suspense.

Although the title might make one expect a similar setting to his first book, there is very little time spent inside caves or tombs. This time the suspense comes from those who wish to gain something from this Incan site and a legend of "Satan's Blood"; a near magical substance that holds a key to an age-old secret plan. Like the first book, there was some imbalance in eco systems where there seemed to be more predators than the food supply could allow but this time it is less important to the plot and therefore easier to overlook.

Both EXCAVATION and SUBTERRANEAN are better than AMAZONIA (his fourth book) with the stories being more complete. Although I suspected some of the book's revelations, I didn't get them quite right. Needless to say, giving too many details would lessen the effect of the book and it is one worth reading.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "Dig" your way through the first 100 pages... 28 mars 2001
Par coachtim - Publié sur Amazon.com
and you'll find a pretty good read. Alright...it's not the most believable premise. (believeable, hell!; this ranks right up there with "there's no travelling in the NBA", the Alien Autopsy, and "I'll still respect you in the morning...") On the other hand, if you like over-the-top "Indiana Jones-type" adventure stories, then you'll find this book very entertaining.
Character development is a little weak and in most cases, it's really hard to feel very close to "our heroes", but besides that and believability, those are the only major flaws in this book. I've got to admit that once I finally got into the story, this was a hard book to put down.
I'm not big on giving too much of the plot line away in these reviews because I hate it when somebody does that. So, suffice it to say, Rollins does a nice job keeping two plots lines going and tying them together at the end of the book. There's a lot of action in the last 300 pages and it's easy to pick out the "bad" guys in this book - a group who's usually not thought of as being "bad" guys, I might add! (I'm sure this won't be on the Pope's reading list.)
If you liked Rollins' first novel, "Subterranean", or if you enjoyed "Neanderthal" and the "Relic" books, you'll probably really enjoy "Excavation" as well. And, like a lot of novelists these days, the "door" is left open at the end of this book for a sequel. I smell "mini-series"!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A TREMENDOUS improvement over Subterranean... 11 décembre 2000
Par Jeff Edwards - Publié sur Amazon.com
As I read 'Subterranean' I couldn't help but wonder if Mr. Rollins was going to be introduced to what folks in the publishing biz call an 'Editor'...he has such raw talent and great ideas, but they don't get to run through the editors gristmill before they hit the pages. His first novel was a hodgepodge of ideas strung along together in order to keep your interest--and that he did, but at the expense of smooth writing and editing.
'Excavation' remedies a LOT of what I found disappointing in his first novel. As far as I can tell either his talent has greatly increased or an editor finally decided to reign in his ideas and give them direction because SOMETHING has happened in between novel 1 and novel 2--something very good.
I found myself drawn into this tale virtually from page 1 and it honestly began to get better, gradually at first, and then like a steamroller with no brakes it takes off and refuses to slow down. I have to say, that the thought of being caught in an archaelogical dig with THOUSANDS of albino tarantulas massing to use YOU for an evening snack was enough to bring the hair on my neck to attention. More detailed, MUCH more complex, 'Excavation' is a great Hollywood movie in-waiting in my opinion. Kinda like 'X-Files' meets 'Indiana Jones'. A great combination and overall, a VERY fun and exciting novel, and when all is said and done, a TREMENDOUS improvement over 'Subterranean'.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Ok fast read, but strange ending 11 avril 2006
Par R. (Payton) Mastromauro - Publié sur Amazon.com
I thoroughly enjoyed Subterranean and so I thought maybe I'd like some of this other books. I tried Excavation, bad idea. Although it is fast paced, its got some serious charachter flaws. The one dimentional personality traits were so boring. I didn't feel connected to any one of them. Without giving any real information of the story line. It was somewhat predictable, having a similar type of development to Subterranean. I read through it fast, although it was somewhat entertaining, the ending was too strange to feel satisfied by the completion of the book. I won't say what it is, but there is something they find towards the end of the book, that is not explained, it just sits there, with first thought theories, leaving the reader, wanting to know more about this 'it'. Then before you know it, the book is finished, and you're sitting there thinking, well what the heck happened to 'it'? What is 'it'? Well I'd definitely reach for Subterreanean, before I grabbed this one.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excavation, An Excellent Summer Read 14 novembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I got hooked on Excavation when I was starving for more adventure reading from Lincoln Douglas & Preston Childs. I'd read everything by them. Then I found James Rollins and couldn't put the book down. So, okay, the premise was a bit hokey and I didn't exactly buy into the creatures in the land of the dead, but still I wanted to see what would happen. I thought this book was a great summer read, just right for those times when you really want to kick back and enjoy yourself.
I do believe his other book Subterranean was better. I loved the twist of having marsupials dinos running around. I think James Rollins has a future and I look forward to reading more of his work.
