The Prisoner's Gold
ITW Thriller Award for 2016 Book of the Year
At the end of the 13th century, Chinese Emperor Kublai Khan gave an Italian merchant unfettered access to his kingdom. The traveler was Marco Polo, and his journey would become legendary. Aided by a special passport that protected him throughout the land, Polo amassed unbelievable wealth and hid it before his return to Italy. To this day, the location of his treasure remains a mystery.
The Hunters—an elite group assembled by an enigmatic billionaire to locate the world’s greatest treasures—are tasked with finding the missing fortune. Guided by firsthand accounts of Polo’s travels, they quickly discover there are hostile forces willing to do anything to stop them from taking the riches from Chinese soil. Before long, the treasure hunt becomes a deadly game of cat-and-mouse that will rewrite history while taking the lives of many.
As the danger mounts, will the Hunters rise to the challenge? Or will the team be killed before they find Polo’s treasure?
Graham Brown, #1 international bestselling author—
“THE PRISONER’S GOLD hits like a hammer, with intense action, suspense, and intrigue that echo to the very last page and beyond. Fantastic!!!”
PRAISE FOR THE HUNTERS SERIES:
The Daily Mail (UK)—
“THE HUNTERS is taut and fierce—with a cast of agreeably idiosyncratic characters. It feels like the draft of a movie, and it could just be Kuzneski’s breakthrough novel. It deserves to be.”
Herald Sun (Australia)—
“THE HUNTERS is Mission: Impossible on steroids. The first in a new series, Kuzneski brings together a super-expert crew of renegades to track down a lost treasure, sent into hiding in 1916 and never seen again. . . It’s all about the action, which never stops. Half the fun is imagining the all-star cast for the movie that was clearly in Kuzneski’s mind. Final verdict: Thrill Ride.”
Steve Berry, #1 international bestselling author—
“Kuzneski does it again with another terrific tale, filled with action and suspense, bringing the unimaginable to life. Definitely my kind of story!”
Scott Mariani, #1 international bestselling author—
“THE HUNTERS kicks off a brilliant new series from Chris Kuzneski. Adventure, history, mystery, and more—everything you’d want in a thriller!”
Boyd Morrison, international bestselling author—
“If Indiana Jones joined the crew of Mission: Impossible, you’d get the action, history, and wicked sense of humor in THE HUNTERS. With a thrill ride that pins you to your seat until the very last page, Chris Kuzneski sets a new standard for adventure.”
