Publisher's Summary

The first in a brand-new series from the international best-seller Chris Kuzneski.

"If you seek, they will find...."

The Hunters: Financed by a billionaire philanthropist, this elite team - an ex-soldier, an historian, a computer whiz, a weapons expert, and a thief - is tasked with finding the world's most legendary treasures.

The mission: Fearing a German victory in WWI, the Romanian government signed a deal with Russia to guarantee the safety of the country's treasures.

In 1916, two trains full of gold and the most precious possessions of the Romanian state - paintings, jewellery, and ancient artefacts - were sent to the underground vaults of the Kremlin. But in the turmoil of war, the treasure was scattered - and lost. Almost a century later, the haul is valued at over 3.5 billion dollars. Despite hundreds of attempts to find it, its location has remained a mystery...until now. Can the Hunters find the treasure and succeed where all others have failed?

    "A Thrill Ride"

    I have never read anything by Chris Kuzneski before but The Hunters had been recommended to me a number of times. I figured I'd give it a shot and listen to the audiobook.
    What a thrill ride, edge of your seat action, fun and interesting characters and a historical mystery. The chapters are short and it's easy to get into the story. If you like a dose of humour with your action, definitely give this book a try. I had moments of actually laughing out loud.
    Dudley Hinton really immerses the listener in the action of the story, making the unbelievable, believable with his performance. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Story
    "a gripping start to a new series"
    Where does The Hunters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    this is possibly the best audiobook I have ever heard, and definitely the best Chris Kuzneski novel.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the author's ability to shift the opinions of the listeners with regards to the characters again and again, without ever getting lost or confused. And the level of research which has clearly gone into the story.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I love any scene in which the abilities of the main characters come together in beautiful harmony with spectacular results.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book will make you experience every emotion possible, as you are taken through comedy, betrayal, love and hate.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a well researched gripping novel, that is also filled with comedy and black humour.

    "Decent story, some odd pronunciation"

    Whilst this type of story is by no means original (think A-team for the 21st century), the author provides a story which is detailed enough to satisfy, while containing enough action to keep the plot moving along. Clearly the author has done a lot of research in preparing this book, and the cross-generational linkages provide a continuity seldom found in this type of book.

    The characters are quite well developed - although only limited back-story is provided, and then mostly through the device of round-table introductions when the team get together. There are also a couple of errors/loose ends which were a little annoying, but mainly in the initial phase of the book so they were not essential to the overall plot.

    The one downside is some rather eccentric pronunciation from the reader. Overall he does a good job, even with the different accents and voices, but there are a number of instances of unusual pronunciation and blatant errors - a railway is described at one point as narrow gouge rather than gauge. As something of a pedant when it comes to grammar and pronunciation, I found this somewhat off-putting and it did spoil my enjoyment of the book a little.

    If you like Tom Clancy and Frederick Forsyth but prefer a little less technical detail, or were a fan of the A-team but prefer a little more technical detail, chances are you will enjoy this.

    "Buy the abridged version!!"

    This had such promise of a brilliant chase the treasure story. My advice please buy the abridged version..., I only got half way through this story it's soooo long winded. I understand we have to get to know the characters, but please get on with the plot.

    "Okay but slow"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Well, it was okay. The reader was good, albeit with a slightly monotone voice. But the story was kind of slow. The idea is good, and I liked some of the characters, but just dragged a bit


    What was most disappointing about Chris Kuzneski’s story?

    Everything was described in minute detail, which stops the plot jogging along. At one point he lists what one of the characters had on his sandwich. And it wasn't even an exciting sandwich filling or relevant to the plot. Dull, dull, dull


    What does Dudley Hinton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    He was pretty good, albeit a bit monotone at times. He was very good at the accents.
