The Lost Throne is a new thriller from novelist Chris Kuzneski and includes the characters D.J. Jones and Jonathon Payne, who were in some of his past books. These men are experienced ex special-ops soldiers who are retired but still maintain their contacts and work freelance. D.J.

The author then introduces us to more various characters such as an Interpol director, an attractive Ph.D. student, and a mysterious monk The Lost Throne is an international thriller which takes us to the United States, then to Russia and finally to Greece.

Mafia Son, is the story that gained national notoriety in 2007 as a result of former FBI agent Lin DeVecchio’s sensational murder trial, in which Sandra Harmon testified, this is an unforgettable tale of violence, wealth, and sex, set in a world where a man’s word is both everything and nothing. This is a true crime thriller, Sandra Harmon has written a psychological portrait of a man who changed paths and went to the right path and ended up paying the price for his choice.  A story of one of the most notorious families in the history of organized crime, this story is fast paced and will keep the reader on the edge of their seat.  In my opinion this was a great read and would recommend to anyone who is into true crime novels.  This is one you will not be able to put down.

Blood Safari by Deon Meyer

Deon Meyer lives in Melkbosstrand on the South African West Coast with his wife and four children. He has written five novels, this being the first that I have read.  This is a fast paced thriller which is the unfolding story of South Africa in the past and present. This story tells the story of the land of Africa, the slaughtering of animals out of pure greed.  Meyer creates vivid scenes through environmental description, describing the local settings, the animals, as well as the racial interactions of South Africa’s people/population.  This is a terrific and unusual thriller and I am thankful I have discovered this author.  Happy to say I am a fan and will be buying his other 4 novels.  This is a must read, after reading Blood Safari has left me yearning for more and entertained.
