Publisher's Summary

The first in a brand-new series from the international best-seller Chris Kuzneski.

"If you seek, they will find...."

The Hunters: Financed by a billionaire philanthropist, this elite team - an ex-soldier, an historian, a computer whiz, a weapons expert, and a thief - is tasked with finding the world's most legendary treasures.

The mission: Fearing a German victory in WWI, the Romanian government signed a deal with Russia to guarantee the safety of the country's treasures.

In 1916, two trains full of gold and the most precious possessions of the Romanian state - paintings, jewellery, and ancient artefacts - were sent to the underground vaults of the Kremlin. But in the turmoil of war, the treasure was scattered - and lost. Almost a century later, the haul is valued at over 3.5 billion dollars. Despite hundreds of attempts to find it, its location has remained a mystery...until now. Can the Hunters find the treasure and succeed where all others have failed?

A Thrill Ride

I have never read anything by Chris Kuzneski before but The Hunters had been recommended to me a number of times. I figured I'd give it a shot and listen to the audiobook.
What a thrill ride, edge of your seat action, fun and interesting characters and a historical mystery. The chapters are short and it's easy to get into the story. If you like a dose of humour with your action, definitely give this book a try. I had moments of actually laughing out loud.
Dudley Hinton really immerses the listener in the action of the story, making the unbelievable, believable with his performance. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

a gripping start to a new series

Where does The Hunters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

this is possibly the best audiobook I have ever heard, and definitely the best Chris Kuzneski novel.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the author's ability to shift the opinions of the listeners with regards to the characters again and again, without ever getting lost or confused. And the level of research which has clearly gone into the story.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I love any scene in which the abilities of the main characters come together in beautiful harmony with spectacular results.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book will make you experience every emotion possible, as you are taken through comedy, betrayal, love and hate.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a well researched gripping novel, that is also filled with comedy and black humour.

Instantly forgettable.

I had high hopes for this book. Particularly given the number of positive 4+ star reviews. Don't know what I'm missing but this was very disappointing. The general premise of the storyline was promising but there was no character development, no real twists, etc. Not for me.

Pretty Basic

No sophistication here, in neither narrative or plot. Fast paced action story littered with cliches and stereotypes. Painful at times.

Buy the abridged version!!

This had such promise of a brilliant chase the treasure story. My advice please buy the abridged version..., I only got half way through this story it's soooo long winded. I understand we have to get to know the characters, but please get on with the plot.

Had me wanting to listen as often as I could

Kris Kuzneski's stories are always brilliant - always told in such a way as to make me feel like I'm there in amongst the action. This story will not disappoint. Action, history, the working of a team of people trying to get used to each other -each one as likeable and as interesting as the next. Didn't want the story to end - glad there's more of them coming.

Painful

I'm not even thou the first half and my ears are bleeding. The story is boring. The narrator is boring. The story line has potential and I was hoping for epic along the lines of Matthew Reilly but the author fell way short of any sort of excitement.

Maybe if I read the book it might improve but listening to it out of the question ;(
