Book Review for 'The Lost Throne' by Chris Kuzneski

The Lost Throne is the fourth book for Internationally acclaimed writer Chris Kuzneski. It was published in the US in July of 2009 by G.P. Putman's Sons/Penguin Group.
When the decapitated bodies of seven monks are thrown from the high cliffs of the Meteora monastery of Holy Trinity, Nick Dial from the Homicide Division of Interpol, is plunged into the strange world of a monastic religious group guarding an ancient secret in Greece.
Half-way across the globe in St. Petersburg, FL, special forces elites Jonathan Payne and David Jones receive a phone call from a man they do not know who asks for help. When the two men learn that a friend of theirs is also in danger, they decide to get involved. What takes place from this point on is a whirlwind adventure that uncovers a strange twist in history, a phenominal ancient treasure and a beautiful damsel-in-distress.
This tightly written, nail-bitter has something for everyone. The Lost Throne is boldly written and extremely riveting and will keep you on the edge. Kuzneski's descriptive passages are sprawling and make you feel that you are in Greece seeing the ancient monasteries and walking through the small, little-known villages that make up the setting for the book.
The characters are bigger than life and hell-bent to discover the secrets of The Lost Throne. Chris Kuzneski has woven a tale of ancient Greek lore, hidden treasure, murder and intrigue with this one and you could not go wrong reading this thrill-ride adventure story. Put this one on your list of 'must-reads' because your going to love it. I gave The Lost Throne a 4-spider rating and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a great adventure.
