The Black Madonna Storm Syrrell Adventure Series, Book 2

Lists with This Book. I had given up on thrillers: But this book's title attracted me because I have researched Black Madonnas and also collect their religious medal likenesses, the centerpiece of my collection being the Black Madonna of Czestochowa that is partially shown on the book jacket. So imagine my joy as I read this book because although we travel the world from the Dead Sea and Jordan to Europe and I had given up on thrillers: So imagine my joy as I read this book because although we travel the world from the Dead Sea and Jordan to Europe and America, there are no gender-specific injuries heroes and heroines are equally breakable and equally heroic , there is no political pontificating on the author's part about which country is right or wrong unless we consider the Madoff scandal in Florida's West Palm Beach and no theories about the over Black Madonnas in the world being related to the Mary Magdalene controversy.

There is a double love interest and a breathlessly exciting glacier-hiking adventure and, best of all, we get to learn about the good and bad in the world of art auctions.

The Black Madonna

I recommend this as a first-class thriller and intend to read more of Davis Bunn's books this week. Davis Bunn writes with clarity, chills, thrills and makes you work for figuring out who all the bad guys are. Will be happy to read more from him. Jul 10, Janessa Weightman rated it did not like it. The series reads like a knock off Dan Brown novel. Nov 23, Kenny Sargent rated it really liked it. This was good - definitely worth a read, but I liked Gold of Kings much better.

Jun 16, Margaret Chind marked it as to-read Recommended to Margaret by: The Black Madonna is the sequel to Gold of Kings. I knew this was to be a similar type book, but I did not realize it was a sequel. Boy was I excited when I discovered that! In May , I had this to say about Gold of Kings: Now this was a fun book! The reading of this book gives off a similar vibe to Matt Bronleewe's August Adams series Illuminated, House of Wolves , although it is not quite as cool in my opinion as I just loved those books, but really like this one.

There are really three main characters that you are following through out the book in their physical, mental, and spiritual battles. The adventure is laid out for the reader to enjoy right along with the characters. The only flaw points that draw me back are the parts where a character figures something out, but it is hidden from the reader.

That makes me feel like an outsider, and I love the stories that are as if you are right along side them, and not viewing from a window, you know? One of the best parts about this book are the historical facts and images that are brought to life and explained through out. As the characters are learning some historical pieces of the puzzle the explanations are given to the reader as well in an intriguing manner. Maybe it is because I have a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies and this is just my thing, but over all I was thoroughly impressed and plan to look for more titles like this from Davis Bunn in the future.

Now, about this latest adventure with Storm, Emma and Harry The only thing I'd change is my opinion of calling the story-point a flaw. After reflection as well as an email conversation with the author, I do not think that it's a flaw anymore. It is different to me and something a little out of my own comfort zone, but it does prove to add to the suspense.

I both hate and like the ending. At the same time it is much like a film that makes you wonder, but that's not my personal preference although I know it sells. As a whole I really enjoy Davis Bunn's suspense and adventure novels. Coming from reading The Gold of Kings to continuing the story here it was nice to learn a bit more of the personality and character of homeland security agent Emma.

I still would call this Storm's series though. Sep 16, Laura rated it really liked it. Physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Storm Syrrell is sole proprietor of an arts and antiquities establishment in West Palm Beach, Florida. Struggling to stay afloat amidst the aftermath of the Madoff scandal, Storm is miraculously snatched from a second bankruptcy by a mysterious deposit of a large sum of money into her business account. Minutes later, she receives equally mysterious instructions from an anonymous individual, who informs her what she is to do with the funds.

Purchase one painting which is going on the auction block that very day. The greater the odds, the more desperate the circumstances, the more impossible the chances for success — the better! The icon must be retrieved, both to avoid international scandal and to restore faith to a country that had already seen enough suffering. If you are a fan of Limoges china, smoked salmon sandwiches, and chilled champagne at eight in the morning, this is the book for you.

This is vicarious living at its best. You will experience sights, sounds and pleasures that make Donald Trump appear a panhandler. And you will begin to understand the importance — nay, the necessity — of faith, hope — and love. Feb 17, Mark Young rated it really liked it. Treasured art, steeped in historical significance, dramatically changes the lives of art historian Storm Syrrell, treasure hunter Harry Bennett, and U.

S Treasury agent Emma Webb.

See a Problem?

They return in The Black Madonna to locate another historic art treasure that will have international repercussions. There is another aspect of The Black Madonna that I found fascinating. Davis conducted intriguing research for both these novels; rubbing shoulders with real-life treasure hunters, talking to intelligence sources, and visiting exotic locations.

Readers will travel from an auction house in London, through hostile mid-eastern countries, to the Monastery of Jasna Gora, located near Czestochowa, Poland. Do you have an urge to travel? Nebo, where God gave Moses one last look at the promised land. This author seems to have taken a modern-day Indiana Jones journey to be able to write this thriller. Again, Davis demonstrates why he is a bestselling author. I became hooked on his novels after reading The Great Divide several years ago. Aug 23, Christy Lockstein rated it really liked it. Storm is still trying to rebuild her antique dealership after the death of her grandfather and imprisonment of her father for his embezzling when she gets a too-good-to-be-true job offer to buy a Russian painting at an art auction.

When the buyer pays more than twice what the item is worth, Storm becomes suspicious, and her worries only grow when she is ordered to buy more items at a price a good deal more than their The Black Madonna by Davis Bunn is the second book in the Storm Syrrell series.

The Black Madonna (Storm Syrrell #2) by Davis Bunn

When the buyer pays more than twice what the item is worth, Storm becomes suspicious, and her worries only grow when she is ordered to buy more items at a price a good deal more than their value and pitting her against another dealer who is intent to run her out of business. Raphael Danton, her buyer, is an agent for a mystery man, and has a tragic history that has made him angry at the world until Storm's fiery spirit cracks the shell around his heart.

When Storm's life is threatened because of her buys, best friend Emma Webb, a agent for Homeland Security, steps in to help, but Emma's heart is torn by the news that her lover Harry Bennett has been killed by a bomb in the Middle East. Bunn brings back all of the interestinDesigng characters from the first book, Gold of Kings, and adds some more fascinating ones. The story is so filled with twists and turns, back-stabbing, assassination attempts, kidnapping, and political machinations that the pages just fly by. Bunn parcels out information to the reader carefully, building suspense and tension to an almost intolerable tautness.

Storm Syrrell Series

Emma is an outstanding character who often beats up the bad guy before the men around her even have time to react, definitely a rarity in adventure novels. The climax is almost anti-climactic after the rest of the thrilling novel, but there is obviously another sequel in the works because the reader is left hanging and worrying about what will happen next to heroine Storm.

Aug 11, Sylvia rated it it was amazing. Yet when an obsessive Russian oligarch calls - just as her friend Harry Bennett vanishes - all assumptions must be cast aside. There, the scarred visage of an icon provokes even more startling questions. These 11 locations in All: Open to the public Book English Citylibraries Townsville.
