Through the ages kings, rulers, power seekers, and governments, have been trying to secretly, and sometimes not so secretly, get their hands on artifacts believed to have immense power. Examples include the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, Bachal Isu - the staff of Moses carried by David, and the King of Kings, Jesus Christ, the Spear of Destiny, the time machine, "the glock," created by the Germans during WWII, and ancient lost cities with hidden fortunes of gold, and artifacts with unimaginable powers.

Not really a thriller, not really a mystery just a story. I usually enjoy archeology and history based thriller, but it just did not meet my expectations. This is the first in a series and I would hope that J. C Ryan will flesh out the stories going forward. It just read/listened like a recitation of facts and circumstances. The author can and has done much better.
The narration was good, but could not overcome the story.

Kuhns has brought us an entertaining mystery very much in the style of Conan Doyle. Sherlock Holmes and the Scarlet Thread of Murder brings us three detectives and three mysteries that all weave into weave together for a fine story.
The narration was good but when you have three story lines and characters, it requires an involved listening to keep up with the players.
The Novella and the short stories were a good read/listen and I recommend this for anyone looking for a good mystery without all the baggage that modern thrillers seem to have.

This is an enjoyable murder mystery or was it just an accidental death. The cops don’t know or do not want to push to hard against the wealth and power of their community. The father of the victim hires Private Investigator Jack Marconi to prove the murder. All sounds pretty standard the it begins to turn to the dark side and P. I. Marconi begins to unravel a tale of power, intrigue, and a dark side the disturbs even him.
This is a great story with a enough twist and turns to keep you listening until the very end.
