    "Thrilling, intriguing"

    I admire the research Mr. Kuzneski puts into his novels. They sound almost like a collaboration between Dan Brown, Indiana Jones, and Clive Cussler! "Sign of the Cross" involves a conspiracy (of course) at the heart of the Catholic church, and archeological discoveries which threaten to unearth it. Probably, devout Catholics don't want to listen to this book, but archeology buffs surely will enjoy it. As always, I didn't like Dick Hill's narration too much, but didn't dislike it enough to dock a star from this audiobook.

    "GREAT STORY!!!"

    This story is right up there with a James Rollins or Dan Brown novel, taking a significant event in history and weaving an alternate reality around it. I was holding my breathe until the very end because the story is so plausible it makes you really wonder. The characters of Payne and Jones become alive as Dick Hill narrates. If you like adventure or historical fiction, you have to give this book a try.

    "Another Winner"

    Mr. Kuzneski's second book is as good as his first. I like that he has used Paign (sp?) and Jones again. Dick Hill's narration is not as good in this book. He does better with southern accents, but not irritating or monotonous like some narrators. The subject material is thought provoking and obviously well researched. I have really enjoyed Mr. Kuzneski's first two books and look forward to the third.

    "Narration is disgraceful"

    "The Sign of the Cross" is an interesting novel, with all the twists and turns of an Alpine road.
    It is ruined, however, by the always dreadful narration of Dick Hill. It remains a mystery to me as to why Hill is employed as a narrator, with his peculiar pacing, odd sound effects (stop that sighing, for goodness sake!) and melodramatic voices that are frequently hysterical.
    My sympathies go to the author, whose work deserves better. Anybody's work deserves better.

    "A Good listen!"

    I found the Sign of the Cross to be both entertaining and thought provoking! I enjoyed the characters and the narrator who brought them to life. I also feel the negative reviews are far to critical! I would recommend this book to my friends!

    "Terrible!"

    An absolute horror! The story dull but the reading twice as bad! The main character sounded like a poor imitation of an old gangster film. His side kick an African American sounded like a a ghetto high school drop out but the worst were the the Italians who sounded like an old Mario brothers game. Do not waste your time or money. If it were possible to give it no stars.
