The investigation onto the museum raid continues, but it’s a difficult one. One of the four ‘knights’ has already died in his – guarded – hospital room, and FBI Agent Reilly is unknowingly engaged in a race to find the other thieves before the mysterious assassins trying to eliminate them. Meanwhile, young archaeologist Tess Chaykin is following up the Templar lead – one that the FBI considers too far-fetched to be worth looking into...
Again: some very nice artwork. Colour work good. Story -twists and turns and the characterisation and pacing is very good. Cannot really be faulted. However, the one thing I kept thinking was that, even a top book like this, the conspiracy and twists and so on start becoming a little "samey"!
I never thought I'd write that but maybe it is just me? The thing is, of course, Cinebook have so many series and titles that if these thrillers do get a tad boring you can try something else. Which makes it seem like I think this is boring -which it isn't of course it might just be the fact I'm reading a batch of these in one go and desperately want some smash em up action and devastation!
