The fifth of six projected Gabriel Hunt adventures finds our man Hunt in Shanghai and nearby, searching for a missing friend of his younger sister, hoping to find her before she can get revenge on the Chinese mobster who killed her own sister. This being a Hunt adventure, some sort of ancient treasure or ancient legend must come into play. This time it is the legendary Killers of Men -- the terra-cotta army of Chinese warlord Kangxi Shih-K'ai which is supposed to include the warlord's entombed b ...more

What I read was actually a PDF file sent by the publisher. The book is scheduled for release next week(the 22nd).

Hunt's baby sister, Lucy, pops up after a nine years absence asking gabriel for help. Her best friend, Mitch(Michelle), had been framed for the murder of her sister.

Mitch had been drummed out of the Air Force after an accident that destroyed a helicopter. She hadn't done anything, but a scapegoat was needed to cover for the real culprit, a superior officer. She'd come to New York to s

I can't say that any of the Gabriel Hunt series is high literature. They are pretty much modern day pulp fiction, the literary equivalent of pixie sticks. In spite of that, most of the series have been enjoyable to read, except this one.

For one reason or another, I just could not get into this book. I'm not sure if it was the writing style this time around, or if it was because it seemed more focused on a Mack Bolan/Executioner anti-mob plot than the previous globe trotting adventures. Regardles

Following his adventure in Antarctica, where things got a bit...well...weird, this instalment in the Gabriel Hunt series feels grounded in comparison. Don't get me wrong, there are hidden treasures, outrageous action sequences and all the good stuff, but this felt a lot darker and nastier than the books before it. Still pulpy adventure fare - not much to write home about but an entertaining romp.

Not my favorite of the series. Had a tough time getting into it and finishing it. I think the problem was not enough of the exploration aspects of the other stories. This one felt less pulpy, too.

I made it through. I liked the characters, especially Ivory, so I suppose that is what kept me from giving this one a 2 stars.

A fairly good Gabriel Hunt romp, as he travels the world to prevent a villain from resurrecting a bigger villain.

Enjoyable.

Not at all in-keeping with the series. Rather than pulp madness this is actually an excellent thriller in the James Bond style. Well worth the read but not what I'd come to expect from this series.
