The Seventh Plague Clues 1-9

I’ve been mostly mum about this December’s release of the next big Sigma novel, THE SEVENTH PLAGUE. The reason: the concepts and historical mysteries coming up this next book are HUGE. So as a teaser (and just for the fun of it), I’m going to post a few clues of what’s come, clues ripped from this month’s headlines.

Clue #1 for The Seventh Plague: This happened in Russia. Remind you of anything?

  • The Seventh Plague Clue #1

Clue #2 for The Seventh Plague: This haunted ship from a tragic Arctic expedition, the HMS Terror—newly rediscovered this month—plays a role in the new book.

  • The Seventh Plague Clue #2

Clue #3 for The Seventh Plague: Did you know that Mark Twain and Nicola Tesla were friends? Twain even played in Tesla’s lab. What does this have to do with the new Sigma book?

  • The Seventh Plague Clue #3

Clue #4 for The Seventh Plague: What does this demonstration of elephant intelligence have to do with Sigma’s next big adventure?

Clue #5 for The Seventh Plague: This conspiracy-plagued HAARP facility in Alaska just opened its doors for a public tour this month. It plays a critical role in the new story. But what’s really going on here?

  • The Seventh Plague Clue #5a
  • The Seventh Plague Clue #5b

Clue #6 for The Seventh Plague: What does this mysterious object have to do with the new book? It’s the cause of much trouble, going back to ancient Egypt.

Clue #7 for The Seventh Plague: It was just announced that Greenland is melting faster than predicted, to the tune of an ice mass equal to 50,000 Empire State Buildings. But what does all this melting have to do with the new book?

  • The Seventh Plague Clue #7a
  • The Seventh Plague Clue #7b
  • The Seventh Plague Clue #7c
  • The Seventh Plague Clue #7d
  • The Seventh Plague Clue #7e

Clue #8 for The Seventh Plague: The famous African explorer, Dr. David Livingstone, died in Africa in 1873. His heart was buried under a tree outside an African village, but when his body was returned to England, it was already mummified. You’ll know why when you read The Seventh Plague.

  • The Seventh Plague Clue #8

Clue #9 for The Seventh Plague: John Martin’s 1823 painting of a plague of hail, fire, and lightning. Could all the biblical plagues of Egypt return again today? The answer is YES…and you’ll discover how it might already be happening in The Seventh Plague.

    Just finished reading THE BONE LABYRINTH. Not my usual read but I did enjoy it, especially the science aspect. Although, and I am sure you’ve heard this before, the scenes with the animal labs, testing , etc. are really hard to take. It reads like a really fun, roller coaster ride of a movie. Wonder who they can get to play Baako?

    I have read and own every book you have written and am anxiously awaiting the release of The Seventh Plague. I am curious why the release dates of the majority of your novels are on a yearly bases around Christmas. Is it that you give yourself a year per book as a personal goal, or does it just happen to take around a year to complete each book?

    Regards,

    D. S. Wheeler.

      It does take me a good year and sometimes longer to complete a book.
