Review

THE HUNTERS kicks off a brilliant new series from Chris Kuzneski. Adventure, history, mystery, and more - everything you'd want in a thriller! (Scott Mariani)

Kuzneski does it again with another terrific tale, filled with action and deception, bringing the unimaginable to life. Definitely my kind of story! (Steve Berry)

If Indiana Jones joined the crew of Mission Impossible, you'd get the action, history, and wicked sense of humor in THE HUNTERS. With a thrill ride that pins you to your seat until the very last page, Chris Kuzneski sets a new standard for adventure (Boyd Morrison)

Book Description

THE FIRST PAYNE AND JONES NOVEL FOR HEADLINE - from The Sunday Times bestseller Chris Kuzneski.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Though ‘The Einstein Pursuit’ is the latest of Chris Kuzneski’s successful Payne and Jones best-seller series the format of two ex- special services soldiers coming to the rescue gives the impression of being worked out - it is tired and tortuous. The banter between Payne and Jones starts as humorous but ends as irritating. Readers wanting action-packed gore and mayhem will not be disappointed but the plot is too far-fetched and it lurches along with increasing implausibility. The story unravels from three main perspectives - obviously from Payne and Jones, but also Interpol - and of course the various villains.

The story stars with the destruction of a laboratory in Sweden and the killing of eminent scientists - but why - what were they doing. Options are considered - cultivation of a super disease, biological weapons , etc. - it had to be bad and it had to be stopped - bravo Payne and Jones and their violence. They roam the world and there are evocative descriptions of places such as Stockholm and Prague, but little relieves the brutal intensity of the narrative. Reliance on scientific elements and reference to Einstein allows author Chis Kuzneski to mention real events and real persons - even including himself - described as pretty! For me this was pretty awful, and it confirmed my view of ‘The Einstein Pursuit’ as pulp fiction - average at best and hence 3-star rating.

I have grown to love Payne and Jones, Yes they are a little bit outlandish and far fetched, but isn't that what a story is all about, the ability to lure you in, get you excited and then at the end wish for more? Well this gives you that and more.
We become involved when a laboratory is blown up and a number of high profile scientists are burned to death, reasons we are not clear about, but when Payne and Jones get a phone call from another scientist who used to work for their father, and states his life is at risk, the two friends become involved to try and save his life.

Another Payne and Jones adventure. And another Kuzneski action-thriller. If you are a fan of P and J, then you'll know what to expect and probably not be disappointed. I find Kuzneski a sort-of guilty pleasure, I almost enjoy the books, they are fast-paced page-turning adventures…but with two of the most annoying protagonists in action fiction. Payne and Jones like to have childish banter while dealing-out death and destruction but being all but indestructible themselves. This book won't convert anyone to the series (check out Kuzneski's The Hunters series - much better) but I do like his website where you can get a virtual tour of locations and buildings etc used in the books. If you like this type of book (and I do) check out the far superior Scott Mariani and his Ben Hope series - brilliant.

The problem with reading a book series is that writers often run out of ideas and rather than finishing the series they keep flogging a dead horse. The other thing writers often do is write any old rubbish to meet a publisher's deadline or simply to make a quick buck. So far, Kuzneski hasn't gone down this route but every time a new Payne and Jones book comes out I read it with anticipation that he will so I'm glad to report that his latest Payne and Jones offering "The Einstein Pursuit" is up to his usual standard. In other words, brilliant. This time, Payne and Jones come to the aid of scientist Dr Mattias Sahlberg whose life is in danger from unknown assailants who want to stop some research getting out into the public domain. The book is the usual action-packed no-brainer adventure which I love. Long live Payne and Jones!

All of Chris's books are awesome. if you like any of his others just buy it.

One of his books is getting made into a movie now, can't wait for that.

I emailed Chris a while ago to tell him how much i love his work... and he emailed me back and said "Payne and Jones says Hi", that made my day... If only he could make a new book once a month.

Too much action and not enough subtlety. It started quite well, but As books like this do, it accelerated a decent plot and acceptable action levels too much. I just started skipping through as it was all about the action and little to do with the plot. As a result, I'll not read another book by this chap.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm stunned to find this getting so many great reviews, I think it's one of the worst books I've ever read: repetitive; over-endowed with huge slabs of research shoe-horned in wherever and whenever; virtually non-existent characterisation - no one, not even the protagonists, are more than ciphers for the plot. And the plot is nothing to text home about either: a raft of clichés stitched together with ghastly dialogue, full of cringingly fake 'witty' macho banter; the whole thing hangs on coincidence and happen-stance and it's all SO predictable; the denouement of each and every part of the plot was practically visible from space.Clearly, I am not in this novel's intended audience. I really I don't think I'll be picking up another Chris Kuzneski novel any time soon.

Chris Kuzneski always knew that it would be difficult to maintain the quality of his earlier works as he set such a high standard to begin with. As a result some of his recent plotlines have been questionable and I haven't kept hold of the books, but he now appears to be firmly back on track with The Einstein Pursuit. The action and humour flow easily once again and the basic premise of the story is sensible. I hope that he manages to keep Payne and Jones in character, just as we know and love them, for their future adventures.
