    First of all, totally blown away by this one! I fell in love with the two main characters Payne and DJ a few books ago. This is just the latest in their adventures...and it held true to form. The banter between the two main characters is hilarious and keeps the story from weighing d...

    Although it's difficult not to associate any novel of this genre to The Da Vinci Code (there is even a joke made about The Da Vinci Code in this book), the most notable thing about this one that sets itself apart from The Da Vinci Code is the fact that it's not about religion. So that ...

    I feel like this was the guy's version of chick lit. Most typical 'guy' topics were covered and it was SO literal - there was no alluding to the characters thoughts, etc. Everything was just stated like a screenplay. Probably a good book for some but it just wasn't for me. ...

    Good book for what it is... brain candy. Love the Pittsburgh references. I will probably read some of his other books. ...

    Not a very good review, but: Way too much testosterone in this novel. Far too much. Far too much enjoyment of the military and violence, far too much obsession with wealth as a good thing, and the most annoying use of the description of a woman as "a gorgeous brunette," because a...

    Funny, witty and a real page turner. Even though it is part 5 of a series, it didn't feel like it. I laughed out loud several times while reading it - the banter between DJ and Jon is fantastically written. The only thing that irked me was the info dumps every now and again. I real...

    This book is really good. The book ending up in my book shelf was a coincidence and I was lucky it did. Surprisingly this book started, moved and ended so quickly and by the end I was really surprised by how fun the book went. This is the first book that I am reading from this author a...

    Modern_action_thriller_suspence. Loved the book. Though no goosebumps were felt, but the story was truly thrilling. There is a lot of action and humour. Nothing to bore the reader. You won't get to meet the villain until the last 50 pages, which was well played trick, made it comp...

    This was my first Chris Kuzneski read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked the topics and the issues he tackles while he entertains us through words. Well written and well done. Dick Hill as narrator is as usual at his best. 9 of 10 stars ...

    This series just keeps on getting better! I am as always amazed by the level of research that goes into one of these books. ...

    Enjoyable. A good storyline but not always sure of the interplay between the two main characters. Sometimes it detracts or distracts from the plot. Well managed story that leads at a fast pace towards an end that slightly lets down. It almost feels that the story ran away with itsel...

    The Prophecy by Chris Kuzneski I loved this book and all the Payne - Jones books I gave it a 5 out of stars. Chris Kuzneski has a knack of leaving you wanting more when you read his books, he creates an exciting story of action and suspense. A party is interrupted by a beauti...

    Enjoyed some of the others better but this was good never the less would have liked a bit more on the end regarding what the prophecy exactly was ...

    Plot was weak and not very believable. The story didn't read like the 5th in a series, which I thought was good, and the added mystery of the Nostradamus-esq quatrians worked reasonably well. However, there were too many information dumps for my liking. More effort should have been ...

    I liked the idea of bringing Nostradamus into the fiction and the puzzles. But in the end I couldn't figure out what the fortune was that Megan was promised. The did not quite like the ending. ...

    It would be 3.5 stars except for the fact that the end of the book ends in a mystery and the next book does not seem to pick it up. It was a good premise but there was a good portion of the book with no Nostradamus even though it was about him an a last prophecy. I would have liked to ...

    Another good adventure thriller featuring Payne and Jones. This time our intrepid heroes are caught up in a search for rate artefacts belonging to Nostradamus. Things start off quietly as they are attending a fund raising event run by Payne when a mysterious woman shows up. After talk...

    More great Payne and Jones. I love the Payne and Jones combination ... And the regulars like Petre and Dial. I'm not sure this story is as solid as the earlier adventures but it was still an excellent read. The formula works for me ticking boxes in antiquities and history and unstop...

    Loved it. It's basically another fantastic action-packed fun-zone. So much like Dan Brown, but with more excitement! ...

    Very readable, I really enjoy the banter between the 2 main characters, interesting scenario built round Nostradamus, still thinking about the ending. ...

    It took a bit to get into the style of writing but found that I started to get more involved with the book after a few chapters. Would like to read more of the series! ...

    The Prophecy once again places ex-marines Payne and Jones in the middle of an historical puzzle. This time the plot is rather thin and although the story is peppered with action there is a lack of suspense. Once more Cuzneski uses the world's famous landmarks for the action and as the ...

    Marvellous and Captivated. You know I have never read a novel with such fun and even wanted it to never complete but good things ends soon. I would say its fucking good. It had mixture of humour, action, thrilling, suspense and what not. It had very different approach to the epilogue ...
