Publisher's Summary

The latest thriller from number one best-selling author Chris Kuzneski!  

An Ancient Treasure: While visiting the scenic country of Malta, Jonathon Payne and David Jones bump into an old friend who has come to the islands to search for a long-lost treasure of the Knights Hospitallers, an organisation that dates back to the First Crusade in AD 1099.

A Vengeful Criminal: When Ivan Volkov - the ruthless leader of a Russian crime syndicate - is betrayed, he is willing to do anything to get retribution. Protected by a team of hackers and henchmen, he travels to the Mediterranean, where he leaves a trail of bodies in his wake. 

A Final Showdown: Before returning home, Volkov learns about the ancient hoard, one with possible ties to Paul I and the Russian Empire. With pride and riches on the line, he focuses his wrath on the only people who stand in his way...but Payne and Jones refuse to back down as they try to locate one of the most important treasures of antiquity while battling one of the world's most dangerous criminals in a deadly fight to the finish.  

Filled with action, adventure, history, suspense and side-splitting humour, this is Chris Kuzneski at his very best.

Great adventure & humour ...

This is a great adventure featuring the wonderful duo of Payne & Jones. Some of their previous acquaintances join them on this adventure & along with the action is the usual Payne & Jones chit-chat & humour. Although I did struggle with the narrator (probably because I had become used to Dudley Hinton whom narrates Chris Kuzneski’s other audio books), he did have a good grasp of the humour & banter & an excellent character voice for one of their old friends ...
I’m really hoping more of Kuzneski’s books will find their way into the audio library!

Garbage

Sorry I purchased this book which is essentially trash. Poorly written and narrated. Having trouble understanding the ratings that this book has achieved.

Disappointing ...

I couldn’t wait to finish this audio book ... don’t really know whether is was the awful narrator or the story... I am an ardent fan of Payne & Jones and found this unfunny, boring !
