The Prophecy (Payne & Jones, #5) by Chris Kuzneski
I think the author thinks he's very clever and witty with all the wise-cracks and while it's mildly amusing and keeps the mood light, it's not quite as hilarious as it's seemingly meant to be. The author is very descriptive with all subjects, regardless of how small or large a role they play in the plot buildings, guns, even Philly cheesesteaks which suggests his research is thorough but that doesn't mean you should take all his info about Nostradamus as fact.
Pittsburgh and Philadelphia fans will probably love all the city descriptions and references. I was particularly pleased to see Willow Grove Airbase mentioned, as I myself am from around that area. There are enough mentions of sports and guns and usage of guns to satisfy the more masculine side of a reader but also a budding romance to please your more feminine side.
The plot is very interesting so overall, it's an entertaining, action-packed, easy-reading page turner enough adjectives for you?

I definitely kept wanting to find out what happens next and couldn't wait to find out what happens at the end. Though I was a little frustrated by the ending I won't say more than that, don't want to add spoilersI liked it enough that I'm interested in reading his previous novels. I know-I know,the whole book is surrounded around the religious mystery.
I just wish it never had went into the gritty details,because it can be uncomfortable at times. I would be okay if it kept the religious-thriller theme but just as a plot twist or an overview. The characters,particularly the villains,were so realistic and jarring,and frightening to know that these kind of people exist in the world. The baddies reaped their reward,and my babies lived happily-ever-after even though I technically can't be their mother at this age.
I did,also,appreciate,the nonchalant,hilarious,cool as well as witty personality of the main character,in contrast to the uptight,no-nonsense,genius stereotypical, fictional detectives in most crime fiction stories. I don't know how I ended up reading this, but I did which is awesome.
