“A real page-turner….Rollins keeps the story in overdrive, with plenty of twists and turns before the final shocker.”
—Douglas Preston, co-author of The Monster of Florence

A classic adventure from James Rollins, the author of The Doomsday Key, The Last Oracle, The Judas Strain, Black Order, and other pulse-pounding, New York Times bestselling thrillers, Excavation carries readers deep into the jungles of South America, and into the terrifying heart of dark mysteries that should never be unearthed.


  • Another Great one from Rollins.

    I have only read a few James Rollins books, I'm not even threw with this one. Having a hard time putting it down, this is an amazing read.

    Over all, a pretty decent read. It was pretty similar to Amazonia which was annoying anddd... Albino tarantulas...? Really...?
  • Great book, dirty publisher tricks...

    This really is a great book. The only problem is I read it ten years ago. James Rollins writes stuff I really like to read. I'll buy anything he publishes. So when I saw this book with cover art I had never seen before and a publish date of October, 2009 I hit the buy button. Once I opened the book I realized it was a ten year old book that I had read already. Now I don't mind the seven bucks so much and I don't really mind throwing James a little extra cash. I do mind how publishers are playing with publish dates on iBooks to confuse readers as to how new or current the book is. Granted, I should have looked a little deeper and at the end of the day it is my fault, but I've read more than 500 books and it's easy to forget a title from a decade ago. Publishers, please post the original publication date to make things clear for your readers. That being said, this is a solid book and a great place to get started with James Rollins. Buy it.
  • A great book!

    If you haven't picked up a James Rollins book, I suggest you start from the beginning--with Subterranean. That being said, Excavation is one of my favorites
