"Rick Jones has penned a hair-raising thriller with a twist, and just the brand of action-packed, non-stop writing I enjoy best. He has taken an awesome story, added a couple of emotionally-charged, result-oriented protagonists, a few really bad guys, and topped the whole thing off with a large quantity of whatever is lurking in the dark temple, brutally and savagely killing off the cast of characters. I, for one, can’t wait to read more from him in the future.
Vatican Knights is an edge of your seat adventure, an awesome tale filled with twists and turns that you’ll never see coming, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Rick Jones is the future of thrillers.
