Michel de Nostredame, the French apothecary commonly known as Nostradamus, has gained a cultlike following since the sixteenth century. His loyalists credit him with predicting numerous world events — the Great Fire of London, the rise of Napoleon and of Hitler, the nuclear destruction of Hiroshima. Although much has been learned about Nostradamus over the centuries, his most important collection of prophecies has remained hidden . . . until now. The discovery of a puzzling message, written in a series of codes and ancient languages, prompts a young woman to seek out Jonathon Payne and David Jones at a charity event at the University of Pittsburgh’s Cathedral of Learning. Unfortunately, their meeting is interrupted by an assassin, sent to kill everyone who knows about the document. Relentlessly hunted by those determined to learn the secret, Payne and Jones are forced to fight back. In an adventure that spans two continents and several centuries, they must locate the sacred text that may change everything we think we know about the future. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Interesting plot. Narrative between the main characters a bit hokey. But I'll read another of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/16/2014

    " Not as much globe-trotting, but enjoyed it all the same. Love Payne and Jones :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki Papworth | 2/15/2014

    " I liked this, has flashes of Dirk & Al from Clive Cussler fame. Smart arses and cheeky stuff going on all the time as they save the world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 2/11/2014

    " I was looking for an audio book to listen to on my way to work and found The Prophecy. I had no expectations since I had never read this author. I enjoyed the audio version immensely. It was a decent storyline. I'll have to actually read the next book to know if I like the writing or if it was the actor who made all the difference. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cristina | 2/3/2014

    " Totally my genre. What I liked the best was the banter between the two main characters. A fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vinayak Srivastava | 2/2/2014

    " This novel started off beautifully like a good thriller, with a good plot and characters in place. However, after some 250 odd pages, the whole plot is lost and so are the characters. It just drifts from there on to an unknown, indeterminate and unfocused territory, ending in a not-so-thrilling end. I personally didn't like the ending, and felt like fooled all way long. This adds to one of those could-have-been-big bubble bursts of disappointments list. Sigh.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeremy | 1/29/2014

    " It was pretty good. I agree with previous comments. Dialogue could be better. That said it was a page turner. I'll give the author another read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deepti | 1/22/2014

    " i wish it never got finished!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb Jones | 1/20/2014

    " Very exciting book. I had a hard time putting it down although I would have liked to learn what the prophecy was in more detail! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pjr | 1/16/2014

    " great entertainment as always, well-researched, captivating, the perfect summer fiction with a bit of pizzazz "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Todd Vanderwerff | 1/16/2014

    " Clumsy. Why do I keep reading this guy's books? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 12/25/2013

    " Loved it! A majority of the story takes place in pittsburgh I would recommend to anyone who likes historical mysteries with a little milItary stuff thrown in. It is violent but works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yana Kennedy | 12/21/2013

    " Another good read, quite pacy and very interesting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 12/16/2013

    " Definitely liked this book. A good/easy/quick ready for DaVinci code type lovers, but with less action (which I'm okay with) and less to decode (I could have used a little more). I'll continue to read all of the Chris Kuzneski series, the duo recurring characters are a nice pair. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 12/7/2013

    " Another one of KUZNESKIs treats... action on every page both internal and external conflict. JONES and PAYNE make an awesome polar opposite team. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 3/10/2013

    " non stop action, so addictive.... so love the narration.... Brilliant!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharron | 6/19/2012

    " Didn't think the storyline was as strong as it could have been and Sign of the Cross is still the best in the series. Kept me entertained though so not all bad "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Newell | 1/16/2012

    " I like these books. An easy read where you suspend belief and have fun with the smattering of history. As stated in other reviews they are formulaic and while I do wish the supposed banter between Payne and jones would die a death, they are entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pallav | 1/15/2012

    " Very good book. Better sort of historical mystery where some focus is also on the characters in the book. I read it in one day flat, it's not too heavy on detail or excessive descriptions which works for the narrative. The dialogue is awesome :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 12/2/2011

    " Loved it, couldn't put it down, didn't want it to end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gevera Bert | 11/3/2011

    " Interesting romp through the world in pursuit of new information on Nostradamus, but the ending was totally flat and left me feeling a bit angry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Quy Phung | 11/1/2011

    " I can't put it down!!! This is a must-read, must-have book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jordan | 8/10/2011

    " So this was the first book I had read in the series, but it was not very confusing at all, thankfully. I enjoyed the book, but the ending was way too rushed. It took forever to reach the climax, but then the climax took all of two pages. But, overall it was a pretty good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Hall | 7/29/2011

    " not his best book, played on the bromance too much, but as always a good exciting quick easy thriller "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Conyers | 6/23/2011

    " This author REALLY loves his characters...they are the perfect male specimens. That doesn't ruin the story at all, but it does get a little redundant hearing how perfect they are. It's a fun plot, and a lot of research went into the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yana | 6/22/2011

    " Another good read, quite pacy and very interesting "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Newell | 4/19/2011

    " I like these books. An easy read where you suspend belief and have fun with the smattering of history. As stated in other reviews they are formulaic and while I do wish the supposed banter between Payne and jones would die a death, they are entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris | 2/1/2011

    " Too much attempted foreshadowing gets very annoying, but an interesting story line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 pRiscilLa | 1/11/2011

    " Thoroughly enjoyed reading The prophecy; wonderful characters, and a really adequate writing style "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Xavier | 11/9/2010

    " Payne & Jones wander into Nostradamus territory. Like the earlier book, the villain isn't villainous for my taste. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christie | 10/21/2010

    " Very entertaining, although I thought it ended a little abruptly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gevera | 9/17/2010

    " Interesting romp through the world in pursuit of new information on Nostradamus, but the ending was totally flat and left me feeling a bit angry. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Todd | 9/12/2010

    " Clumsy. Why do I keep reading this guy's books? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 8/19/2010

    " Kuzneski hasn't let me down yet and this one was great. The duo Payne and Jones are back for another trip around the world and through history. A great adventure on a controversial topic, a Kuzneski specialty! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chazz | 8/8/2010

    " Almost four stars. Good twisting, turning action/adventure. But, the banter tended to be sophomoric, I thought, not that I'm Mr. Repartee either. Still, it's worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Timothy | 8/6/2010

    " Much more entertaining than soap opera vampires and Tom Hanks working hyroglific madlibs. I don't know if this realm exisists, but if it does, this story protrays how I would invision it. "
