This would make a great movie blockbuster!!!!!!
on December 27, 2014
This is book #3 in the Colton Banyon series. He and his girlfriend were on the front porch talking when his spirit friend told him to close his eyes while the friend tells him a story (more a history) of a black diamond..long enough to grab and hold onto) and its mystical properties that most anyone who knows about it will kill to own it.
Let me tell you that I was blown away with the incredible imagination Mr. Kubicki has!! He intertwines historical facts and people into his action adventure stories. First, he tells the story of how a village of Buddhists seek out Alexander the great to take the diamond for safe keeping. There is occult magic in that village.
Then the story fast forwards to a college professor of ancient history, Adam Wesley, who was summoned to Istanbul, Turkey by devious monks to go to South Africa to steal the diamond and bring it back. His intuition told him something was not right and that they were going to kill him. Yet, he takes the assignment. This part of the story gets really "action adventure", kind of like Indiana Jones and Humphrey Bogart spy type mashup. This book had me crawling out of my skin at every twist and turn in it; it was that intense. Let's just say that man has nine lives to rival any cat. This is some of the best writing yet!
I am not going to give the story away. What fun is that? However, the next thing you know, Colton asks a question to his wife in his sleep. She answers him. And she said he only drifted off for a minute or two. Then they make plans to find the black diamond that was taken from Area 51. The hunt is on.........
Mr. Kubicki sent me a copy of this book to read and give my honest review. I am very grateful that he did! This was one hellava great book. I felt like I was there with Dr. Wesley every step of his adventure. He has to be one of my all time favorite characters, ever. This would make a great blockbuster hit as a movie!
