    Davis Bunn brings back the cast of Storm, Emma and Harry in "The Black Madonna" and sends them all over the world in chase of various ancient religious icons. It is full of international intrigue, mystery and suspense - who are the good guys, who are the bad guys? I was guessing through a lot of the book, Russia, Poland, England, America, who is behind the sudden outrageously high priced items at auction. Will it tear Europe apart when its discovered that the Black Madonna in Poland has been replaced with a fake? Who bombed Harry? Who wants Storm dead? This book will keep you on your toes to the end!

    This review was written for The Black Madonna - eBook.
    I love any book I have read by Davis Bunn, and this is no exception. Read Gold of Kings first, then this book. I will read this book again and again.

    Another exciting adventure by Davis Bunn. I believe it will reach all levels of interest and intellect. I love a adventure and a romance woven through it. This is a book that keeps your interest to the end.

    The Black Madonna by Davis Bunn is the second book in the Storm Syrrell series. 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 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. 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.

    Storm Syrrell returns from Gold of Kings for another thrilling mystery, penned by the "Gentleman Adventurer," Davis Bunn. She's still an antiquarian, this time desperate for cash. She should refuse to work with the mystery client who asks her to track down a non-existent antique with miraculous healing powers. But her desperation pushes her to take on the deep-pocketed client. There's grave danger, adventure, and international travel in a story crafted by Bunn with authenticity and action. And Romance. If she can live long enough.Bunn serves as Novelist in Residence for Regent's College at Oxford University. He also teaches creative writing programming for Oxford. He speaks at writers conferences around the world. Fluent in three languages, Dr. Bunn has done extensive travel in Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. He lives with his wife in England and Florida's West Coast.Review by Audrey Hebbert, M.A., author of Green Light Red Light
