Who knew that Chris Kuzneski—high school class clown and former University of Pittsburgh football player—would one day be an international bestselling thriller writer?  His grade school librarian, for one! She had his first work (THE MONSTER COOKBOOK) hardbound and placed in the school library for all to read.

When his football career ended due to a freak foot injury (and, according to him, “a severe lack of athletic ability”), Kuzneski went on to earn a B.A. in writing and an M.A. in teaching. He taught English and coached football in Pennsylvania, then—taking a leap of faith—he quit his job to write. Now, he has endorsements from some of the biggest names in writing:

“Kuzneski’s writing has raw power.” – James Patterson

“Not to be missed.” – Lee Child

“Makes you wish it would never end.” – Clive Cussler

Kuzneski is a NEW YORK TIMES and LONDON TIMES bestselling author, whose books have been published in roughly twenty-five languages (only one of which he claims he can speak) and with over one billion copies (give or take a billion, according to him) in print. His latest adrenaline-charged Payne and Jones adventure came out in August 2013 from Headline Books.


A lab destroyed.
An explosion in Stockholm claims the lives of an elite collection of scientists. Evidence suggests the blast was designed to eliminate all traces of their research.It’s up to Interpol director Nick Dial to uncover the truth about the lab and the attack.

A scientist on the run.
When Dr Mattias Sahlberg learns of the incident, he knows his life is at risk. He turns to the only men he can trust: ex-Special Forces operatives Jonathon Payne and David Jones. Together, they must save Sahlberg from the unknown forces that want him dead.

A miraculous discovery.
As Dial’s case intertwines with Sahlberg’s past, Payne and Jones uncover hidden truths and secret agendas involving the world’s greatest minds. But there are some who are desperate to keep such radical advances in the dark and will stop at nothing to have their way.

High-octane action! Brilliant characters! This book is classic Kuzneski!

And, best of all, he is also working on a new seriesin which an elite team—a soldier,an historian, a computer whiz, a weapons expert, and a thief—are tasked with finding the world’s most legendary treasures. The first book, entitled THE HUNTERS, received rave reviews when it was released in January, and he’s nearly done with the second.

Be sure and check out Kuzneski’s website for all the latest developments. I can guarantee, once you start reading his work, you won’t stop!
