Book 7, in the Colton Banyon Mystery

This is a series easily read in no particular order and after three books I can assure they are an interesting and captivating read from start to finish. On one hand, “A Dubious Position” has kept the series’ mystical tone while on the other hand has distracted us with original ideas and providing a suspenseful and fast moving plot populated with a mix of mysterious and appealing main characters. This latest definitely has a strong blend of old-time male fantasy and a lot of sexual innuendo.

Once more, Colton has to face one crisis after another that needs to be solved and with the help of his usual team and of course Wolf the ever present spirit to guide his every move and make everything go smooth and be successful. The adventure takes place on both sides of the US/Mexican borders.

In this story Colton works for the President as a contractor for a prestigious law firm who employs the strangest of characters: nuns, priests, illusionists, porn star, and a young athletic woman. They are there to assist Colton on covert operation sanctioned by the President. Their mission is to prevent Nazi operatives intermingling in the Mexican and the Unites States affairs. These characters spoiled the pot for me. They are a bunch of starved sex individuals acting like idiots, totally unprofessional and very annoying. This aside, I like the steady pacing, the short chapters straight to the point narration, and how the author has weaved into his plot a humorous side with the more serious situations.

Although I found parts unappealing, at the heart, “A Dubious Position” is quite exciting and is one I enjoyed nevertheless. ( )

I received this book as an ebook free from the author through LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review. The author has done an excellent job of blending fantasy with history. This book is fast paced with lots of action. I found it very entertaining with lots of twists and surprises. Even though it is part of a series it is a complete story by itself and can be read as a standalone novel. This is a well-written book that let me escape for a few hours. ( )

Book # 8, in the Colton Banyon Mystery

Although the story continues the adventure of Colton Banyon and his team of unique characters this book works quite well as a stand-alone. No worries if you pick this one first in no way you will feel lost. The authors have done their best to immerse us from the start in a suspenseful blend of history and fantasy. But first, keep an open mind to see beyond the conspiracy theories, extra- sensory perception, communicating with the dead, evil curses….all that stuff you will read. After all this book is not to be taken seriously but is highly entertaining.

This story is well- written and very smooth to read so smooth indeed I hardly noticed being pulled into the action. Colton has telepathic powers and talks to his long dead friend Wolf who advises him on his next move. In “A Dubious Curse” we have Colton and his extraordinary team pinned once again against “The Effort” (a modern version of the Nazi Party) both seeking a book that contains the secrets of an ancient power (the Vril).

The plot’s vivid imagery is peppered with never ending action, numerous twists and turns and all the goodies that are well thought out. Colton and his team are a bunch of wacky dudes their adventures are so amusing it is hard to put this book down. Great characterization, excellent dialogue and all the ingredients needed to make this a heck of a great read. ( )

This was the first book I’ve read by Gerald Kubicki and the first in the Colton Banyon series, but you can be sure that I’ll be reading the others as soon as I can find the time! I thought it was great, totally my type of a book. I don’t know if it helps to start the series from the beginning, but I came in at this one and felt caught up to speed well enough. Some series you can’t do that, but this does work well as a standalone in my opinion. The chapters were short, which made the book seem to fly by. I’ve never read anything like this before, and there were loads of twists and surprises that kept me glued to my kindle. Colton and Loni make a great pair, and I really liked Loni’s character as a whole. Easy to read and makes for a great escape for a couple of hours. ( )
