9780141044330: The Death Relic

The New World, 1545: Vanquished by the Spanish Empire, little remained of the Aztec and Mayan civilizations. From the ashes of their cities, a unified legend emerged: their conquerors possessed a mysterious object, an artifact so powerful—so deadly—that it came to be known as “the Death Relic."

Yucatan Peninsula, present day: When Maria Pelati’s research team disappears in Mexico, she calls Jonathon Payne and David Jones, who embark on a perilous mission to find the missing archaeologists. They soon realize that Maria’s research may hold the key to solving one of the darkest mysteries of the New World. But their quest to learn the truth about the Death Relic may end up costing them their lives.

About the Author:

Chris Kuzneski is the international bestselling author of The Secret Crown, The Prophecy, The Lost Throne, Sword of God, Sign of the Cross, and The Plantation. His thrillers have been published in more than twenty languages and are sold in more than forty countries. Kuzneski grew up in Pennsylvania and now lives on the Gulf Coast of Florida.

From Booklist:

Kuzneski’s latest Payne and Jones novel is the best yet in the ongoing series. Archaeologist Maria Pelati receives an invitation from anthropologist Terrance Hamilton to come to Mexico and help him solve a mystery. Before he can tell her what he needs, he vanishes. Is his disappearance related to her arrival? She realizes she needs help and calls on Payne and Jones to assist. Hopefully, her past with Jones won’t jeopardize the mission or their lives. The mystery involves an artifact called the “Death Relic,” an object rumored to be responsible for the disappearances of the Aztec and Mayan civilizations. The first part of the novel establishes the characters and the premise, but the second half is a nonstop action fest. Readers unfamiliar with Payne and Jones will find this the perfect place to start, and the constant banter between the two characters adds a bit of humor and fun to the mix. Fans of the adventure novels of James Rollins and Clive Cussler will dig this one. --Jeff Ayers
