A mysterious bookstore fire in Copenhagen and a mind-destroying malady in Nepal propel the Sigma Force team on a hunt across four continents to save the world from a villainous new order. Commander Pierce finds himself unearthing clues from a now-abandoned laboratory in Poland, while Director Painter Crowe investigates a monastery of Buddhist monks that have turned to cannibalism and torture. Sigma Force must expose this new order for what it is, before it is too late. Black Order is the third installment of the Sigma Force series. Bloodline, the eighth novel in the series was released in June to critical acclaim. Each book follows the Sigma Force team as they fight to keep dangerous scientific discoveries out of enemy hands.
