Item Description...
Setting aside her orderly life as an antiques seller and art historian to investigate the suspicious death of her grandfather, Storm Syrell journeys to Africa for answers and is accompanied by the questionably trustworthy Harry Bennett, a scruffy treasure hunter who claims he is the only one who can help her. By the author of Imposter.

Publishers Description
Will she decipher the mysteries leading to the sacred relic, or be defeated by the foes racing to claim it and destroy her?

A dealer in art and antiquities, Storm Syrrell arranges her life as she does her work -- into neat, orderly categories. But when her grandfather is murdered, all certainties are crushingly replaced by suspicions. She struggles to understand his death -- and decipher the frayed leather journal she finds hidden in his vault. Storm soon realizes that, far from being simply a discreet art broker, Sean Syrrell was a trusted go-between in the highest ranks of business and government in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

But not all of Sean's associates were quite so lofty. Enter Harry Bennett, a scruffy professional treasure hunter just released from a Caribbean jail, followed by Emma Webb, a US government lawyer with links to Interpol. Storm pushes her doubts aside, locks the door to her Palm Beach art gallery, and opens herself to the quest begun by her grandfather.

Their trail leads them ever farther afield -- London, France, Istanbul, Cyprus -- and ever deeper into danger. The thrill of the search is haunted by Storm's determination to bring Sean's murderers to justice. Storm and Harry in turn are targeted by an unknown assassin and saved from death only by Harry's split-second reactions.

Their quest homes in on the Copper Scroll of Qumran and controversial claims made by the Jewish historian Josephus. Hidden beneath the dust and mysteries of two thousand years lies the reason behind Sean Syrrell's murder and the find of a lifetime: a fortune in gold of great historical significance. Storm begins to grasp the potential magnitude such artifacts will have on contemporary religion and politics -- especially the competing historical claims to Jerusalem. Some seek to claim the gold for the treasure it represents; others are determined to destroy it. With the tangled motives of greed and power now in focus, old allies become new enemies. Through this, something unexpected tugs at Storm. The sacred relics represent a formidable metaphor to an ancient faith; will her search include a renewal of her own faith?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Gold of Kings  Jan 1, 2010
This book was difficult for me to get into. I wasn't really too much interested in Storm as a character to begin with, though Harry intrigued me. Though, once all the setup work was done, the story really took off.

The setting of Cyprus was interesting, since I know a little bit about the history of that area. Also, the descriptions of art and the manuscript were lovely, and I wanted to read more about what they pulled from the hiding place in Cyprus.

The writing definitely kept me engaged enough to check out the next book featuring treasure hunter Harry, as it was more than a little obvious Bunn was setting up for a sequel.
just shallow  Dec 24, 2009
I did a review for "Full Circle" and this is pretty much in the same vein. I read on the back cover that Bunn lectures on the craft of writing...well, this book was boring, I could not even finish it...the characters were shallow, and there was no emotional depth to them. And, of course, Bunn's focus is MONEY, and more MONEY!!! Read his descriptions, even when he's disparaging the wealthy...there's this vein of envy and desire for the money itself. it was not a good book, and I had to give it one star, cause I couldn't give it a negative one. And, I've given Bunn good reviews...see my others...but this was empty and just dumb.
enjoyable  Dec 6, 2009
The book has a bit of the action movie feel to it, it does keep you involved. I normally read gentle reads, travelogues or histories. I came across this, gave it a try and enjoyed it. I am looking forward to a sequel.
T(terrific).Davis Bunn  Nov 27, 2009
I have been a fan of T.Davis Bunn for a long while. I was surprised to see the "T." off his name. I know it stands for-- Terrific! I appreciate so very much the integrity this man puts into his stories. Anger without foul language in the year 2009 is very rare...and very refreshing. It IS possible to have a great story without the potty mouth and flirt without being filthy. I love a good story. This would make a good movie too. I hope there are many more books to come from this writer.
Thanks, Mr. Phil for the great job of reading the story. D.
The greatest treasure  Nov 23, 2009

Harry Bennett is a professional scavenger who spent the last year of his life rotting away in a Barbados prison for a crime he didn't commit. Then one morning a barrister from London shows up to announce Harry's release from prison at the dying bequest of an old friend. The will of that friend lands Harry in the posh art world of Palm Beach, Florida and in the company of his friend's granddaughter. Together they began to seek a treasure that had consumed their benefactor for many years. The search uncovers far more than either ever anticipated, including the murder of the man both loved dearly.

Gold of Kings is an intelligent, action-packed tale of loyalty, love, and obsession. Harry finds himself with his allegiance divided between three equal, yet very different kinds of loves: a woman who reminds him so much of the old man that trusted him when no one else would, a Federal Agent who first sees him as a suspect but ultimately captures his heart, and the gold fever both women fear still holds him firmly in its grip. Each of the main characters is driven by his or her own burning passion which at times threatens to rip the tenuous team apart. Which will win out? Will it be the drive for revenge or the desire to be professionally recognized? Or, in spite of Harry's growing brotherly love for one and romantic love for another, will it be the gold that wins out in the end?

More recently T. Davis Bunn has been known for his collaboration with Janette Oke but in Gold of Kings he returns to a genre in which he is quite talented. This is suspense with a brain and a heart. The villain is deadly, illusive, and smart. But, unlike many suspense novels these days his methods of killing do not take center stage. Harry Bennett isn't perfect and still has a little larceny left in him at the end of the story. But, he has also learned much about what is of real value. He discovers the greatest protagonist each of us faces is our heart. And, the greatest treasure is more lasting even than the Gold of Kings.
