Book Description

September 2010
Investigating the murder of her grandfather, Storm Syrrell discovers that his arts and antiques business served as a front for secret international dealings. Not only did her grandfather know of his impending death but he also left her the responsibility for his lifetime quest. 

Enter Harry Bennett, a professional treasure hunter just released from a Caribbean jail. And Emma Webb, a US Treasury agent with links to Interpol. 

Their trail leads to London, France, Istanbul, Cyprus, and ever deeper into danger. A vital clue is discovered within the Copper Scroll of Qumran: Hidden beneath the dusty mysteries of two thousand years lies a fortune in gold with timeless significance. 

With the tangled motives of greed and power coming into focus, something unexpected tugs at Storm. These treasures represent a vital connection to an ancient faith. Will her quest include a personal transformation as well?

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold of Adventure +++ June 7 2009
By Kevin Kiersky - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I took a mild risk in choosing this book for my first Vine Review -- as the topic was one I had only encountered in movies or in separate works for the sub-topics. I chose to save this novel for a time and place to ensure unbroken reading and possible enjoyment. I first opened Gold of Kings in a comfortable big chair with a long free evening and with iced tea ready. I lost all sense of passing time until after page 100 -- and got up to fetch some iced tea -- grateful that it was waiting and ready -- thereby keeping in my reading-flow. Davis Bunn had me hooked from the first page and I kept reading with no conscious effort.

I am impressed with this author's narrative skill in adventure writing. The plot, drama, actors, actions, themes, scenes and knowledge-background seemed not only well-done but in a well-done balance. The action was fast-and-clever by fast-and-clever actors -- that got upset and injured and worse. I enjoy such deadly suspenseful intellegent adventure of mortals -- who succeed against odds via wits and daring, yet losing-out or losing-all at times. To my surprise and pleasure, I learned quite a bit more about Medieval, Mediterranian and Middle Eastern topics -- skillfully integrated into the narration. The smooth flow of it all is a wonder -- so no wonder Davis Bunn is a top-selling author -- if his other works come close to this one +++

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold of Kings April 25 2009
By Isabelle Jolly - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This an exhilarating and exciting story. Storm Syrrell's grandfather, Sean Syrrell, has been murdered. He had been expecting it, and had fired Storm from their fine arts business in an attempt to keep her safe. Harry Bennett, a treasure hunter and a trusted friend of Sean, was sprung from prison and tasked with keeping Storm from danger. When Storm discovered that Sean had left her money, paintings, an illuminated book, and a gold chalice, she realizes that the trouble the business was in had been caused by someone who wanted to buy it. A third person is Emma Webb, an FBI agent who distrusts her immediate supervisor, and transfers to Interpol.

The three of them start investigating what Sean had been looking for; treasures from the Second Temple described on a Copper Scroll left by Jews during the time of the Roman massacres.

Lots of excitement, chases, attacks, and a good ending. There is also a lot of early Jewish, Christian, Roman, Greek history I hadn't known. Highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A page-turner thrill ride for readers Aug. 19 2009
By Mr. Deeds - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I'm a sucker for adventue-thriller page-turners -- and "Gold of Kings" didn't disappoint. I read at night and frequently had to keep reading far past my normal "lights out" time, leaving me feeling sleepy at work the next day (but it was well worth the sacrifice :-)

This book has believable characters, and a believable plot as well. It's clear the author, Davis Bunn, did plenty of research for this novel. At times the book read like a screenplay -- and I could easily imagine seeing this as a movie on the big-screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Treasure Hunting or murder investigation?? May 4 2009
By B. Ferris - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Very interesting look at treasure hunting when it happens to be at a knife's point.

Storm, Harry and Emma are on the hunt but someone is trying to kill Harry but may also be looking to kill Storm and Emma.

Storm's grandfather has been killed but has arranged for Harry to look out for Storm and Emma is a gov't agent protecting Storm plus trying to find out what's going on with all the "art houses" Emma has a real jerk for a boss but is able to join Interpol part way through the book and is given help for Harry & Storm's treasure hunt.

Strong, involved storyline with the treasure at the center and in very wonderful places to visit--I'm ready to go <G> I liked all the historical information about the treasure they're after. Lots of twists and turns Harry & Storm lead us through. Some page turning moments throughout the book.

I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading a few more Bunn books

By Phoenix - Published on
Never heard of Bunn. Accidentally got hold of the book. It's a fun read and it is well written. I liked that it didn't use foul language. It kept my attention to the end. It is a great book for the beach. I'll be reading more of Davis Bunn.
