    Knight's cross by Christine King is a mystery and thriller and general fiction (adult) read. Shipwreck hunters Maggie Riley and Cole Thatcher are no strangers to the mysteries hidden beneath the seas. They’ve uncovered artifacts with secrets that powerful interests would do anything to control—and they’re about to do it again.As the newly engaged couple prepares to set sail, Cole suspects they are being followed. While he tries to unravel a coded message that hints at a treasure jealously guarded by an ancient society, a bomb is discovered on the couple’s yacht. Now it appears that Cole’s belief isn’t mere paranoia—and that the cipher holds information others will kill for.This was a really good read with good characters. I loved how Cole and Maggie were together at helping people. 5*. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book from netgalley.

    Another wide ranging adventure centered around a lost ship, whose final resting place is unknown. In this case, it is a WWII British submarine, the Upholder, which was lost with all hands in the Mediterranean after a secret mission in the early 1940's. Maggie Riley and Cole Thatcher, using his father's cryptic notes, search for the wreckage and a potential priceless artifact. Of course, at least one other organization, with nefarious intentions, also wants the artifact. The search area covers the Med from Turkey to the shores of Tunisia, with a side trip to Rome. There is some action, but a lot of time is spent traversing the Med from Turkey to Malta to Crete to Djerba, and points in between. This is in interesting read, but just doesn't have the spark that CIRCLE OF BONES and THE DRAGON'S TRIANGLE had.

    This is the weakest of the 3 I've read so far, but still a nice read. Unable to keep treasure hunting out of their marriage plans, our intrepid heroes seek an ancient book that will affect the whole religious order. Sound like Dan Brown, well the author even refers to his books. There is lots of intrigue and another big bad band of brothers with infinite influence. The resolution left holes for me.The author writes well, and the story never drags. The secondary and historical characters are well defined. But I never really felt the same tension I did earlier, especially in book 2.This is the last one published so far, and I will read the next one if/when it comes out.

    Normally I do not read adventure/spy books written by women, but thought to try this one as I have been an avid sailor for 60 years. I found it amusing, but predictable. I did enjoy the "flash backs" to 1798 and Alonso and Arzalla, would have liked more of their trials, more in depth insights. I did not go back to read the portion where Cole was diving on the "Upholder" but "he did not make the required stages in his assent to the surface" after overstaying his "bottom" time at 160 foot depth. Surely he would have perished from the "bends". -30-

    BoringStruggled to finish it. When they found the submarine after looking for a couple of hours it was to incredible. Then the bad guys show up in a helicopter simultaneously. The bad guys had been looking for the sub for years. The shield started off in a grave and somehow was laying on the side of a steep hill in the open. Anyway one impossible situation after another, forget the multiple escapes from certain death.

    An action filled mystery in a great location. An action filled mystery in a great location. I always learn a lot about each theme presented in the shipwreck books. She brings the characters past and present to life. You should start with the first book and read them in order otherwise some things may not make sense.

    Good conspiracy plot which easily maintains readers interestEnjoyable conspiracy plot. Easy read with good character development. However the conspiracy concept is difficult to take seriously. Easy read when dealing with required wait periods which is also easy to put down went an alternative arises. Good airplane ride diversion

    Historic whodunitPlenty of action and intrigue entwined with what appears to be historical facts. Facts or not, this book is hard to put down and it provides plenty of entertainment.

    Jumps Around Too MuchThis jumps around too much to follow or care about any character. Writing is okay but not enough to hold my interest. Too many plucky women and too many bad men to be believed.

    Delightful readingI enjoyed reading this third installment of the Circle of Bones series. Riley and Cole continue to struggle with their relationship and Theo may be working on one as well. All this mixed in with a story that reminds me of some other well know authors.

    This adventure combines marine archeology, sailing and the dark secrets of the Order of the Knight's of Malta (a group dedicated to the total extinction of the Moslems), in an exciting quest for a secret manuscript that could challenge the underpinnings of Christianity.

    Good, but took forever to get to the exciting partI live the books and the characters, but this book took me longer to get into than three previous 2. it Just wasn't gripping. But once I got to about 40 or 50%, it picked up.

    It's the first one I have read by her. I found it very entertaining and want to read more. Great geographic descriptions and intriguing history as well as a fast moving adventure.

    I wish there had been more sailing. Heroine spunky, preferably to muscular hero.

    Knights! What's not to love?Doubling down on one of the primary mechanics of the series; we now get to try to follow three different timelines at the same time. If you can do it it's well worth it as we get a brief glimpse into a new heroines life as the Paramore of a night of Maltaand of someone trying to break out of stereotypical roles, while doing very stereotypical things.The return of villain thought to be dead was a little disappointing, It just seems to be so predictable. The plausibility of the survival is never established, happening entirely off screen.But we do have good doses of conspiracy theory and international Shadow organizations, which don't disappoint.

    This is a great story full of mystery and adventure. It will quickly grab your attention and keep you reading to see what happens next. There is plenty of intrigue, suspense and adventure to keep you on the edge of your seat. The author does a great job with pacing so the story never lags. I really enjoy these adventures and can't wait to read the next one! I received an advanced reader's copy from the publisher, via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Part of a trilogy about a marine archaelogist and a female marine searching for antiquities. The story is broken into 3 parts, ancient, WWII and current. The tale is woven in a manner to make historical connection between the eras along with a James Bond type spy thriller style. Enjoyable light reading.

    I always love mystery, intrigue and adventure stores and this didn't disappoint. The book kept my attention as the story never lagged. After the first page, I didn't want to put it down. I managed to read it in three days but would have finished in less if I didn't have other things that needed to be done every day. I can't wait to read the next one.

    Think "Davinci Code" at sea. I loved everything about this tale! The characters were engaging, the locations magnificent, and the adventure fun... despite the guns and violence. Pick up a copy, you won't be sorry!

    Good story and history combinedThe history of Malta was a great backdrop for a treasure hunt. The 85foot yacht was a little over the top but we all can dream. The villain was also overdone but read this book for the sheer fun of it.

    Great combination of subjectsReally enjoyed the combination of satisfactions, history, geography, conspiracy, and archeology although character development is a bit weak and characters aren't overly likeable. Subject matter alone makes this interesting.

    At first I was worried that this would be the same as the other Riley and Cole adventures, but I was pleasantly surprised as the book went along there was some nice character development. I enjoyed the interweaving of the three different time periods.
