While vacationing in Paris, Shari Cohen's children are kidnapped by Jadran Božanović, a Croatian kingpin who runs a human-trafficking cartel and is as deadly as the knife he wields. Few dare to challenge him. And even fewer dare to defy him. With time running out and her resources running thin, Shari calls upon the aid of Kimball Hayden and his team Vatican Knights - an elite group of commandos dedicated to protect the sovereignty, interests, and citizenry of the Church - and are once again reunited. But Kimball finds that his team is quickly outmanned and outgunned, the death toll climbing against forces that are the deadliest the Knights have ever faced. With his back against the wall, Kimball is forced to choose Justice over Law by taking on Jadran Božanović in a contest that only one man can survive. But Kimball soon learns that the Croatian is as ruthless as his legend and just as powerful, if not more so, than the Vatican Knight himself.

Critic reviews

"Ferociously paced and executed, Bridge of Bones is an all-out automatic weapons burst of an action-thriller following a secretive Vatican military arm as they help those who can't help themselves. A sinister human trafficking operation must be stopped - but where the letter of the law is not enough, will a higher justice prevail?" (Rick Chesler, author of Wired Kingdom and Solar Island)
"From a heart-wrenching abduction on the streets of Paris to a blistering gun battle on a yacht, Jones takes the reader on a fast paced ride of action and adventure while delving deeply into both the soul of a warrior and a mother's grief. The Bridge of Bones is a grueling look at human trafficking and possibly the best Vatican Knights thriller yet." (Kane Gilmour, best-selling author of Ragnarok and Resurrect)

Vacations can be hell!

Would you listen to The Bridge of Bones again? Why?

Yes, I really enjoyed the interplay of all the characters, while it does seem to lean heavily on the movie "Taken" for some of the plot lines it is still an enjoyable adventure again with Kimball Hayden.

What other book might you compare The Bridge of Bones to and why?

I've listened to other military thrillers and this stands right there with some of the Joe Ledger books from Jonathon Mayberry.

Which scene was your favorite?

If I give that away it will be too big a spoiler!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I never listen all in one sitting but it did keep me listening longer than normal at times.

Any additional comments?

Great narration, fast moving story with intrigue and a really nasty villain.
