Once again, Michael Sterling crosses paths with 'The Order' in a global conspiracy dating back to Christ.
The first two thirds of the book are very action based - military operations, conspiracy, robberies, etc with the final third switching to Dan Brown mode for a historical treasure hunt.
The story is gripping and relentless - really difficult to put down.
I have a few gripes, which have lost a star from the rating:
* The author insists on trailing everything that is going to happen so the element of surprise is often lost.
* it's a long book and the same tricks are used too frequently - bullet proof vests, etc.
* Early on, there is an event of global impact but the rest of the book never really feels like it's happened - no sense of realism around the reaction.
Anyway, looking forward to the next in the series.
I personally don't follow this type of story line but I must admit it had me hooked from the start.
The books strengths are in the depths of how much the author has looked into his subjects , religion , politics and total believability of his characters.
5 stars were given for the price, the story, the enjoyable and down right fun and fast pace of the yarn.
The kind of people that would enjoy this book are those wanting something to keep them glued, historically accurate, emotionally hyped and overall happy to see more of the same in following novels
This is another brilliant book from an author who knows his stuff and has used his knowledge to write a fast paced and exciting thriller.I gave it 5* because it never slows down but keeps you out of breath to the very last page .
"We would like to tell you how enjoyable your two books -"The Hand of Christ" and "The History Thief: Ten days lost" were.
My wife and I are keen reader of Dan Brown and Clive Cussler we found your two books as good, if not better than any of the that we had read from these other authors".
"We have recently moved from paper books to Kindle books and as we spend a great deal of our retirement in Turkey we find the convenience of the Kindle great for reading and listening to Audio books. so we look forward to reading more from you2.
The pace picks up throughout the story and there are more twists than a slinky. Absolutely fantastic plot lines.
I just wish that the end would not have been so predictable - I should have stopped reading at the epilogue.
