Written by Iris Johansen and her son Roy Johansen.

An exciting thriller about a search for long hidden treasure.

Great read !

Silent Thunder is one of the worst written books I've read in a long time, and greatly disappointing. The dialogue is trite and flat ("Son of a bitch. Bradworth was staring after him. "Bastard."), the characters are unidimensional (the Russians are the bad guys), the story murky and at best cliche.

After 135 pages, I gave it up.
