Read: Sign of the Cross

Hinting once or twice at things still to come to increase the suspense of one’s narrative can be a good move. The reader becomes engrossed in the story and feels slightly ahead of the protagonists. Continuously hinting at things still to come becomes very fast an annoying quirk. Chris Kuzneski has this quirk and Sign of the Cross suffers to some extend under it.

Otherwise it’s a good religious themed thriller. The heroes are quite likable and not too serious. Indeed, I felt a bit reminded of Clive Cussler’s work. The protagonists still need some depth – though it is only the second novel in a series that I suspect to get rather voluminous…
