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.

Not Worth Your Time

I was looking forward to this book as I enjoyed the previous three by this author. Dick Hill as always read this perfectly; that said, this book really never went anywhere or ever explained some of the earlier mysteries in the book. Also, I'm not sure if others had this problem but near the end of the book on at least two occasions there was a "dead spot" in the recording that lacked sound for at least 5 seconds or so. Not a huge issue but annoying. Overall, just not all that good.

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.
