Publisher Description

Bavaria, 1886
King Ludwig II, infamous for his eccentric behavior, is declared insane by his government and removed from his throne. A day later, Ludwig's corpse washes up in the shallows of Lake Starnberg. Rumours about the cause of the tragedy abound, but few people know why Ludwig was really killed. Or what secret was silenced by his death.

Germany, present day . . .
Hidden among the crates in a newly discovered Nazi bunker are documents stamped with a black swan, the insignia of the murdered king. As a favour to a friend, Jonathon Payne and David Jones fly to Bavaria to protect the documents, but soon face a life-or-death battle against an unknown enemy. From the depths of the Black Forest to the water canals underneath Ludwig's castles, the duo must solve the mystery behind the king's death or share his tragic fate.

Must read

Another great Payne and Jones escapade. Maybe not as much action as some of the previous treasure hunts but certainly worth reading!

The Secret Crown

I got this book after reading all the other Kuzneski books, as I really enjoyed reading them. First of all I would like to say that overall the book was readable, but not as exciting as the other ones by a long shot.

After reading bad review after another I though I'd just go for it because I assumed it would live up to the Kuzneski standard, but to me the book seems a little rushed.

In retrospect I probably wouldn't buy the book because it's just not as good as the others...

The secret crown

Another excellent outing for the duo Payne and Jones. Cannot wait for the next one.
