Format: Hardcover
The latest compelling action thriller from Chris Kuzneski, the first in a new series, has a great if not exactly original basis to work with. The Hunters are an 'A-team' of experts in heists, espionage, weaponry, technology, martial arts, history and languages, who have been assembled to undertake an improbable mission (or Mission Impossible), and yes, there's the tough female figure, the crazy joker, the smart charmer, the computer nerd and the solid reliable military veteran who make up their number. So no, not an original idea, but one that can work well if handled properly and Kuzneski is more than capable of that.

There are a couple of things that make this work well on the page as opposed to a CGI-packed action blockbuster movie. For a start, Kuzneski can write well enough to allow you to visualise the action in glorious High Definition. He creates a good historical context for the adventure in The Hunters, the assembled team being sent out to Russia and Romania on the trail of the missing Romanian national gold and treasure reserve, supposedly transported by train to Russia just before the Great War. At a time when Russia was undergoing great internal upheaval however, the whereabouts of the missing treasure is now unknown. To find it and retrieve it - when there are other mysterious and dangerous agencies looking for it as well - will require the combined efforts of experts across a range of disciplines.

That's where The Hunters comes into its own. It takes time to develop a team of characters with distinct personalities who between them combine a healthy balance between disciplined organisation and humorous unpredictability.

Another great book from Chris Kuzneski! I was intrigued by a new team of characters but I was quickly drawn in and liked the new characters. I loved the train trip they took through the mountains, without giving away anything I did so wish to be there with them seeing the spectacular scenery. I always feel entertained, a little more educated and always looking forward to Chris' next book. The ending of this one was especially funny as he tied the old to the new.

If you liked previous Kuzneski's books then you will love that one
If you complained latest books were loosing speed then you won't complain anymore

Fast action, no time to get bored, more funny and more human than a pompous Dan Brown !

I just finished reading this book and found that it was hard to put down and at the end page I THOUGHT IT FINISHED STRANGE but realised it has opened the start of the second book no/2 in the HUNTERS SELECTION so I bought it also and o could not put it down had quite a twist in the end and hope there is a third book coming in the hunters collection PD.

Will make a great action movie. All elements are in place including five characters that seem right out of a Marvel comic book, Garcia- the nerd techie, Sarah- the safe cracking blond beauty, McNutt- testosterone filled shoot em up marksman, Jasmine- the "I didn't know I was so beautiful" archaeologist, and Cobb- the consummate thinks of everything leader. Throw in some great bad guys like the Black Robes (Rasputin worshippers!!) and what's not to like? Reminds me a lot of Mathew Reilly and The Five Greatest Warriors - just saying.

This new group of characters which is introduced in this book look like the series will be a great read also. There is suspense, history, exotic locations and is a page turner full of action.

Great book and have already read the 2nd book but now resting to I don't get bored with it. Love the whole team the way they are selected with their different skills, the humor of the characters (well some have a bit of humor and levity).

I found the story fascinating as it built up sort of a "Dan Brown" story crossed with Indiana Jones and Lara Croft. combined with some excellent action, almost pitched battles, strange trains it all had more sitting up late in bed to see how it worked out.

The weapons expert was a crackup with his funny naïve comments thru to his "you can NEVER have too much firepower", lmao........He helped to make the series quite humorous too.

Anyone looking for small team military action, espionage, tomb raider type treasures with several twists and turns then you cannot go wrong with this book

An elite group put together to hunt the world's archaeological mysteries and treasures. Think the "DaVinci Code" by Dan Brown and "Oceans 11". The novel was put together very well, the action, the science/archaeology as best they could do to find things that have been known in the real world but have yet to be found.

Spoiler alert: The only thing that took away from my joy (my own private moral dilemma) was the feeling that these items were being found by a private investor and not really to be shared with the peoples to whom those archaeological finds belonged to, because the private investor up to something that for right now is a conspiracy... There we're also deaths of good people whose only reason for their death was that they were in the wrong place at the wrong time, or trying to prevent the theft of their country's property, of course there was also the death of some greedy treasure hunters that were the nemesis of the private investors team of treasure hunters. The book captured my attention, and was a somewhat satisfying read -my joy was tempered by the actions taken in the finding of these items and what was done with them afterwards. Wierdly this elite treasure hunting group was made up of really good hearted people which kind of made it odd with the fact they were doing this for the money.
