Short, Fun, And Typical Maddock-verse… Without The Full Team. If you’re looking for a short taste of an Indiana Jones / Dirk Pitt type adventure… you’ve found one. This is a very quick read at under 150 pages and features a bit more straightforward of an adventure for one Uriah “Bones” Bonebrake than is typical of the larger Maddock and Bones books with the full team. It will be interesting to see if at least one of the revelations here plays a role within the larger universe, but it is always fun to see Bones in his element, with or without the supporting cast. Just a great, fun bit of escapism to take your attention for an afternoon without demanding too much of your time. Very much recommended.
Another Fast Paced Thriller. If you like Indiana Jones type adventures, but set in the current era rather than the 1930s… you’re gonna love this one. In the end, it turns out to be a chase for one of the very same objects Indy himself sought, though revealing which one would be a somewhat significant spoiler. For those looking for action books in the midst of so many much-hyped books of… let’s say less shooting and more shouting… this is a book you’ll want to check out. Very much recommended.
Another Awesome Adventure. Once again, Wood manages to make a hilarious adventure that touches on some very dark subjects – including the Black Dahlia murder. Long time fans will love this new chapter, and even people new to Wood and/ or Maddock and Bones shouldn’t have any issues picking up the story as presented… so long as you don’t mind references to previous adventures and story lines (none of which are critical to the flow here). Very much recommended, particularly for those looking for some good, solid, Indiana Jones type escapism.
The Cerberus Group is back, and this time the stakes are even higher. Filled with high-octane action, a grand mystery, and enough adventure to turn even Indiana Jones himself into Roger Murtaugh (“I’m too old for this… stuff.”), Robinson and Ellis have outdone even their previous amazing outing with this group.
