    Just wondering — is Mission Iceberg published only in French? Thanks.


    • Graeme: 2 years ago

      Hi Michelle – yes I believe it is only in French.


  2. MARIA A BERRON: 2 years ago

    What happened to Tucker Wayne? I so enjoyed the two books written but miss having not having more stories with his character and dog.


    • Levi: 2 years ago

      Wow, i dont know how you all keep up so well. I am just getting started with all James Rollins and he ruined the chances of me reading any other authors. I Love these stories and have read 6 of James Rollins so far. I had no idea about the other pen names he has so as you can tell im super excited now i have so much more to read. I used to read Dean Koonts so after reading James Rollins, Dean koonts’s darkness isnt appealing anymore. James Rollins is the best.


      • Levi: 2 years ago

        Well i believe they mention tuckers dog in ‘ The devil Colony’ if im not mistaken. But im that book the original owner is dead.


    • Lady_D: 2 years ago

      In the Sigma Force novel Bloodline (2012), Tucker Wayne and his dog make a guest appearance. There is also a Tucker Wayne Novella included in Unrestricted Access (2020)

    just finished Amazonia. It would make a great movie! very exciting book, enjoyed it thoroughly.


  4. Shari Cohen: 6 years ago

    I’d really love to see more Tucker Wayne books. He’s hasn’t written any new ones since 2015. The way he describes Kane is so vivid and real.


  5. Disgruntled52: 7 years ago

    Another Sigma Force short story was published last week (24/10/17) entitled “Ghost Ship”. Apparently #12.5 in the Sigma Force list but I’ve not been able to independently confirm that.


  6. Disgruntled52: 7 years ago

    “The Skeleton Key” – a short story of Seichan (Sigma) published 31 May 2011 – I believe should be added.

    Do you not think that “Tracker” should be a Tucker Wayne book instead of Sigma even though he and Kane morphed into the Sigma team in Bloodline?


    • Graeme: 7 years ago

      Thanks we’ll get the Skeleton Key added.

      “Tracker” is a tricky one because while I agree with you – Rollins himself lists Tracker purely as a Sigma Force book and where applicable, we go with what the author says.

      But I do think at the very least Tracker should be listed under the Tucker Wayne series with a note – I’ll get that added today.


  7. Louis Henry: 7 years ago

    I was looking for a list of Robert Bryndza books but it seems he is not listed. Is there a reason for this? Anyone that could help I would appreciate it.
