Description

The fourth Payne and Jones thriller from New York Times bestselling author Chris Kuzneski.
 
“A reader's delight from beginning to end. Tautly written, expertly told, smart, and exhilarating.”New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry

Carved into the towering cliffs of central Greece, the Holy Trinity monastery is all but inaccessible. Its sacred brotherhood has protected its secret for centuries. In the dead of night, the monastery’s sanctity is shattered by an elite group of warriors carrying ancient weapons. One by one, they hurl the monks from the cliff-top to the rocks below—the holy men taking their secret to their graves.

Halfway across Europe, Richard Byrd has uncovered the location of a magnificent treasure, but there are those who will stop at nothing to prevent its discovery. Hoping to save himself, Byrd contacts Jonathon Payne and David Jones and begs for their help. The duo rushes to Saint Petersburg, Russia, and quickly finds themselves caught in an adventure that will change their lives forever.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 08, 2009 – When the bodies of seven headless monks are found on the rocks below a Greek mountain monastery, Nick Dial, head of Interpol's homicide division, investigates in Kuzneski's fourth novel to feature ex Special Forces warriors Jonathon Payne and David Jones (after Sword of God). Meanwhile, Payne and Jones are in St. Petersburg, Fla., when Payne receives a phone call from a frightened American woman, Allison Taylor, in St. Petersburg, Russia, who says her boss, a wealthy antiquities researcher, has just been shot dead there. Payne flies to Russia to rescue Allison. Both of these plots eventually join as all involved head off to find a mysterious lost artifact, now known to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Despite the silly, juvenile banter between Payne and Jones as they go about the business of killing bad guys and the book's weak denouement, readers will find the Greek setting a refreshing change after the usual Rome and Jerusalem venues of many such religious thrillers.

The Lost Throne

Picked this book up at the airport before I knew it was on itunes. Loved it. Kept me guessing and had some great action. I think I want to travel to Greece now. I've never read anything by Chis K before. Now that I've just finished The Lost Throne I'm on I tunes looking to get another one of his books. Enjoy!

It keeps me interested during the lecture but it is not brilliant

The book keeps me interested in the reading, it was dynamic... But it was more like reading a action movie. Light reading.

The Lost Throne

Great book. Fast paced and well written. Highly recommend the book. I really enjoyed it.
