Book Review; Sign of the Cross, Chris Kuzneski

Yet another tale in the Dan Brown “Da Vinci” style. The biggest threat to Christianity in its history, yet another villain with unbelievable motives, particularly gruesome murders and innocents abroad. Oh yes, and two heroes who save the day. No wonder Clive Cussler said nice things about the novel.

Longish at 600 pages this is still readable, if only because the temptation to find out the “Why” is almost irresistible. The writing is competent and the plotting is meticulous yet there is an ultimate dissatisfication with the over all effect. The uninspired work of Dan Brown has a lot to answer for!

Should you be an un-repentant Dan Brown fan or a dedicated follower of Dirk Pitt, this is an excellent read. The testosterone is poured onto every page.

  1. I liked his most famous and rushed to get the next book, however I was most disappointed. Bit like Frank Herbert’s Dune trilogy, the disappointment came with the realisation that it was a formulaic attempt to simply pay the rent on his new lifestyle. With herbert, however, it did take till book 5 of the trilogy. Work that one out!

  2. With Herbert, the early Dune books were within a small and dedicated SF group of readers – not enough to pay the rent on anything more than a modest life style – book 5 was, from memory, after the movie deals when he was looking to keep a much more extravagant lifestyle.
