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 +++
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.
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.
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
