Publisher's summary

Michel de Nostredame, the French apothecary commonly known as Nostradamus, has gained a cult-like following, a loyal band of enthusiasts who credit him with predicting numerous world events - the Great Fire of London, the rise of Napoleon and Hitler, and the nuclear destruction of Hiroshima. However, his most important collection of prophetic verses has remained hidden...until now.

In the year 2009, a letter was mailed to a woman who does not understand why she has received the puzzling correspondence, written in a series of codes and ancient languages. She enlists the help of Jonathon Payne and David Jones.

Relentlessly hunted by those determined to protect the secret, the duo has no choice but to fight back. In an adventure that spans two continents and several centuries, Payne and Jones must locate the sacred text that may change everything we know about the future.

Kuzneski: fabulous, as usual

With "The Prophecy" -- Kuzneski's fifth Payne/Jones novel -- the author continues his winning streak of highly entertaining, intelligent stories. Even though Kuzneski gives us far-fetched plots, we willing suspend disbelief just for the fun and entertainment he provides. We can't help but love the relationship between best friends and co-protagonists Payne and Jones, with their witty dialogue, and the perfect way in which they work together on their missions. These guys are TOUGH -- seemingly indestructible (although Payne does suffer a minor bullet wound this time around) -- and they always thwart the bad guys, yielding a very satisfying read every time. The narrator, Dick Hill, has a slight tendency to over-act, but otherwise does a good job of voicing all the characters. I recommend "The Prophecy" to any thriller-lover, to anyone in need of good escape-fiction, and to any Nostradamus aficionado.

Prophetic Review

Not too many BOT make me laugh out loud for real, but this one did, and for good reasons. It is witty, fast moving, and Dick Hill owns Payne and Jones. Hill clearly has a feel for these characters, and the story moves them along in a variety of directions that keep the listeners interest right to the ( slightly ) disappointing finish.

Kuzneski can get a bit graphically violent, but the characters are so compelling it makes up for it.

Recommended.
