review 1: The adventure, the historical references, even the 'shoot 'em ups', good! The sophomoric antics of the lead characters were gratuitous and diminished what could have been a great summer read. About a third of the way through the book I began skimming until I reached meaty content, then read...then skimmed through the repartee until the next scene with content. This could have been a four star book.
review 2: "For years he had been paid to protect the King. Now he had orders to kill him."If a story starts like that you cannot help but read on. I did, and I was not disappointed.Story: Follows DJ and Jon, who are good at what they do and some mission sends them down history at the life of Ludwig, a.k.a Swan King.It is packed with action and riddles, and well writt
... moreen.I was however disappointed that Jon and Heidi did not get together- it would have destabilized Jon a little (and made the story longer, which would have been nice)- a little distraction in an action-packed adventure is always welcome!If you love solving mysteries, then you'd better read this. less

Decided to read this because of its location - Garmisch Germany and pertained to King Ludwig II.
I enjoy this author's work, and like reading up on the background to his tales.
An excellent thriller. Kuzneski's whole series is a worthwhile read.
A great story , really enjoyed it.
