TCCDM Dig and Flip: "The Last Oracle" - James Rollins (2009)

"The Last Oracle"
by James Rollins
(2009)
Paperback, 462 pages

NO SPOILERS:
A James Rollins novel is one you reach for when you just want to curl up and burn some pages with a good adventure.  Mixing strange facts with plausible ideas, Rollins has carved out a well-known niche that keeps readers coming back.  Pages filled with plot twists and thrilling ducks and dodges that longtime readers have come to expect.     

"The Last Oracle" finds a secret organization located in the mountains near Chernobyl planning to take over the world by using savant children who have shown a talent for strong intuitions and accurate premonitions.  This mystery adventure includes over-the-top cold war experiments, under-reported nuclear waste sites, and the Sigma Force left to figuratively clean up the mess.  The story is a fascinating and enjoyable adventure with enough action and louies to keep the reader on their toes.  Not in my top five, but still one heck of a ride.  

"I Can See For Miles" - The Who ("'Pop Go the Sixties" 1969)

Good stuff.
