Fans of Chris Kuzneski won’t be disappointed with his latest novel The Secret Crown, and for those who haven’t read his books, and are partial to a bit of mystery, then this is a perfect place to start his collection.
From the strange circumstances of Ludwig II’s death to the crates hidden in a secret Nazi bunker the story line spins these events into a mystery which Payne and Jones, former members of a Special Forces team in the US, have to unravel. As this is the sixth book in the Payne and Jones series their relationship is firmly established and their witty banter a centre piece of dialog throughout.
It reads like a Hollywood Blockbuster, fast paced, full of action with the added bonus of historical facts to add a touch of reality. The dialog at times can bit a little bit corny like the typical American action film, however, it won’t stop most from enjoying the book.
Added to the experience of the book is Kuzneski’s website providing a ‘virtual book tour’ of the locations and settings. A great touch from the author but don’t look until you have finished the book, some pictures will spoil the plot.
