The Killing Curse (An Omar Zagouri Thriller) by H.B. Moore


Omar Zagouri should have known that the hunt for an ordinary art thief in London would end up being far from ordinary. Abducted and carted across several countries until he’s locked up in the middle of Jordan’s desert, Omar becomes the target of an underground crime organization that dates back to the Crusaders era. As Omar works to uncover the deadly secrets that connect centuries of deceit, he finds himself trying to prevent an honor killing from turning into another tragedy, while exposing the ancient crime organization for generations of lethal corruption.

Man, I am such a fan of Heather Moore.  I swear she can write any genre fantastically.  This is probably one of my favorite series from her.  I love the edge of your seat, fast paced nature of these thrillers.  I would recommend reading them in order just because there is a progression to the relationship between Omar and Mia that happens slowly throughout this series.  If you don't much care about that side of things (which is honestly such a minimal part of the plot) then I think you can read these book in any order and be happy.

One of my favorite things about this book (and the others in this series) is that it has two stories in one.  You have the modern day thriller going on- edge of your seat, action packed, full throttle- and in between you have a story from long, long ago.  Usually the stories from long ago are a bit less edge of your seat and more personal- full of rich history and intense emotion. The two stories always connect together and it just makes the book so fantastic.  I love the different feel to each side.

Omar is smart and edgy.  He's always in the middle of some dangerous game and sometimes it looks like there is no way out.  I love Omar's instincts and the way he always gets the job done.  Nothing comes easy for Omar.

I blew through this book so quickly.  I couldn't put it down.  It was full on from start to finish- heart pounding and exciting.  The story was so good!

Content:  Violence, frequent mild swearing (which I didn't love), mentions of a couple living together and having a sexual relationship but it's nothing more than a mention.

- I received a copy of this book from the author.  A positive review was not required and all opinions expressed are my own.
