There are a couple of things that make this work well on the page as opposed to a CGI-packed action blockbuster movie. For a start, Kuzneski can write well enough to allow you to visualise the action in glorious High Definition. He creates a good historical context for the adventure in The Hunters, the assembled team being sent out to Russia and Romania on the trail of the missing Romanian national gold and treasure reserve, supposedly transported by train to Russia just before the Great War. At a time when Russia was undergoing great internal upheaval however, the whereabouts of the missing treasure is now unknown. To find it and retrieve it - when there are other mysterious and dangerous agencies looking for it as well - will require the combined efforts of experts across a range of disciplines.
That's where The Hunters comes into its own. It takes time to develop a team of characters with distinct personalities who between them combine a healthy balance between disciplined organisation and humorous unpredictability.Read more ›
The Hunters started like many other action thrillers. An introduction to the hero's who have a certain high level hero skill set and then give them a mission.
What makes a good or a great thriller is making those hero's into people you like and care about, people who despite their skills seem real.
Add to that a mission that nots too outlandish, but is still of a scale to boggle the mind, just a little. and finally write it with great skill and pace.
There are only a few thriller writers around these days who can do this, some get 2 out of three (and that's still a great thriller, usually its the outlandish bit and they end up in the cheesy bracket...but they are fun in a different way)
So how does The Hunters stack up? for me it has all 3 of the ingredients needed to make a stunning thriller, and i can see why it has been chosen as his first ever hardback. The book literally explodes into life with a mission impossible style robbery. This is used exceptionally well to hook the reader, but also to then introduce the cast of the book and showcase their skills.
The book then quickly leads on to their true mission, the recovery of the missing Romanian treasure, the wealth of a nation. The backdrop for the story gives the author some stunning scenic imagery to play with which he weaves into the plot with style, and also a sense of love for the land, it wasnt until i had finished that I understood the family connection (the passion showed).
The book / team has humour, history, passion, talent, weapon skills, unarmed combat. It introduces famous figures from history in the Romanovs and also less savoury characters.Read more ›
So after leaving a copy of this book to gather dust on the bookshelf for a few months, I took a deep breath, made myself a cup of tea and sat down to start to read it.
It wasn't Payne and Jones, however from the very first page it had me hooked.
The Hunters are an elite team made up of an ex-soldier, an historian, a computer whiz, a weapons expert and a thief. They are financed by a billionaire philanthropist who sends them on a mission to find the location and to bring back two trains of gold and possesions of the Romanian state that were sent to the underground vaults of the Kremlin in 1916, which are now missing.
The action in the book is fast paced. The book explodes into life from the first page, with a mission impossible style robbery, used to introduce the cast of the book and to show off their skills. Each character is an individual, having their strengths and weaknesses. I like how the female characters are as strong, in their own way, as the male characters, no weaklings here, but capable of standing on their own to fight. Kuzenski writes well and brings the story to life without endless description of what is happening. The book has humour, history, passion, talent, weapon skills, unarmed combat. It introduces famous figures from history in the Romanovs and also less savoury characters like Rasputin.Read more ›
