Revue de presse

'THE HUNTERS kicks off a brilliant new series from Chris Kuzneski. Adventure, history, mystery, and more - everything you'd want in a thriller!' (Scott Mariani)

'Kuzneski does it again with another terrific tale, filled with action and deception, bringing the unimaginable to life. Definitely my kind of story!' (Steve Berry)

'If Indiana Jones joined the crew of Mission Impossible, you'd get the action, history, and wicked sense of humor in THE HUNTERS. With a thrill ride that pins you to your seat until the very last page, Chris Kuzneski sets a new standard for adventure' (Boyd Morrison)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The first in a brand new series from the international bestseller Chris Kuzneski - "If you seek, they will find". The Hunters: a team of renegades - an ex-military leader, a historian, a computer whiz, a weapons expert and a thief - financed by a billionaire philanthropist are tasked with finding the world's most legendary treasures. The Mission: recover a vast Romanian treasure that was stolen by the Russians nearly a century ago. Fearing a Germany victory in World War 1, the Romanian government signed a deal to guarantee the safety of the country's most valuable artifacts until after the war. In 1916 two treasure trains full of gold and the most precious objects of the Romanian state - paintings, jewellery from the Royal family, ancient Dacien artifacts - were sent to the underground vaults in the Kremlin only to be lost to the Romanian people forever as Russia severed all diplomatic relations with the country and scattered the treasure to its outlying regions. With a haul valued at over $3.5 billion dollars, everyone wants to claim the vast treasure but its location has remained a mystery, until now. Can the Hunters succeed where all others have failed?

The latest compelling action thriller from Chris Kuzneski, the first in a new series, has a great if not exactly original basis to work with. The Hunters are an 'A-team' of experts in heists, espionage, weaponry, technology, martial arts, history and languages, who have been assembled to undertake an improbable mission (or Mission Impossible), and yes, there's the tough female figure, the crazy joker, the smart charmer, the computer nerd and the solid reliable military veteran who make up their number. So no, not an original idea, but one that can work well if handled properly and Kuzneski is more than capable of that.

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. There's also some moral ambiguity in who they are working for and their motivations for helping themselves to part of the national treasure of Romania. All this helps maintain some degree of credibility even as it knowing plays around with the conventions of adventure fiction, mixing myth and history to good effect in a location like Transylvania. The same kind of credibility doesn't really apply to the dark organisation of villains they run up against who, even if they have a realistic historical background as a cult founded on adherence to a mystical figure, are kind of cartoonish villains, but it's exactly the kind of highly dangerous colourful adversaries that the story needs.

It's the make-up of the team however that needs to be right in order to bring you back for more. Some of the characters are more developed in this book than others, but that just leaves room for the talents of the others to be brought out in the following mission, and chances are you'll have so much fun here that you'll definitely be looking forward to the next one after reading The Hunters.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I loved "The Hunters"! 10 février 2013

Another great book from Chris Kuzneski! I was intrigued by a new team of characters but I was quickly drawn in and liked the new characters. I loved the train trip they took through the mountains, without giving away anything I did so wish to be there with them seeing the spectacular scenery. I always feel entertained, a little more educated and always looking forward to Chris' next book. The ending of this one was especially funny as he tied the old to the new.

This new group of characters which is introduced in this book look like the series will be a great read also. There is suspense, history, exotic locations and is a page turner full of action.
