    Nostradamus and his 58 missing quatrains take center stage in this phenomenal thrill ride that is fit to last the test of time. 
    From the very start, to the very end you will immerse your self in this great action and adventure story. Yes there are hints political nostalgia mixed into the story, but I don’t feel they take away from the plot theme in any way. All of the characters are well developed perfectly with likeable personalities and the story flows smoothly making it a quick read that I was able to put down in a just a few nights. 
    There are times of suspense, times of emotional thrills, a treasure hunt and even a terrorist attack that is about to take place. I thought this novel to be original and unique in a well-written manner that left me wanting more. 
    5 Stars and cannot wait to read more from Author John Medler.

    First i bought Fountain from Medler now i bought Quatrain.His books are the best action adventures i have read so far .
    Quatrain has very interesting plot which is mix of several genres (action,adventure,mystery and conspiracy).
    The best part of the book is the searching for the quatrains in the small European cites then the bombing attempts and so on..
    I certainly recommend this book for anyone who is fan of this genre ..IT'S MUST READ :)

    If you're fan of Dan Brown's books this is a must read for you..The plot is mixture of action and adventure it has mentioned several terrorist attacks and also the presidential election ..The main characters trip to Europe for treasure hunting the Nostradumus's quatrains was the most interesting part for me.. The action starts when Morse (The main character ) gets back in the US and starts contacting the FBI about the attacks that Nostradamus predicted.I wont tell you more because you need to read it :) .Also this book is very addictive and i recommend it for every crime and mystery book fans out there . If wish i could give more than five stars to Quatrain by John Medler

    I love a good thriller story but to be honest, I approached this one with some level of skepticism. Now I am pleasantly ashamed, yes the author obviously gave this book all that was needed to create a gem. I loved it all the way through; these missing 58 quatrains certainly caused some stir. Now my sister and I enjoy chatting about how it turned out.  This Indiana Jones Type thriller is perfect for me.

    Captivating in every sense and totally natural, John has to be commended for this work of art. No time for relaxing when as the suspense hits this fascinating book. There are some books that just take you away without you even realizing, and this is definitely one. I loved every minute of it, a must read for any avid reader.

    Nostradamus is an intriguing historical figure. The idea that he could prophesize actual events hundreds of years before they occurred seems completely unbelievable. It goes against our logical view of the world.

    But it makes a wonderful foundation for the political thriller Quatrain, a sleek, edge-of-your-seat narrative bathed in history, with action that moves at the speed of light. The story is ripped from today’s headlines, looming terrorist attacks and the race to stop them.

    Medler writes like a more polished and scholarly Dan Brown, investing heavily on the details while plunging the reader through a race course of wicked twists and turns. I was surprised at the course of events at a few points during the novel, there are definite moments that you don’t expect. Especially if you are a religious reader of the political thriller genre.

    While this has been my first exposure to John Medler, he has definitely earned himself a place on my to-read list.

    Osama bin laden's sons terrorists?

    This is a fictional story about the prevention of a terrorist attack on the united states by osama bin laden's sons. Last night i finished this excellent book and this morning woke to the news that osama had been killed by navy seals! What a great way to end the book! Here's wishing peace and closure to all the victims of 9-11!

    Hire an editor!

    As the character Zach would say, 'Great thriller, but the typos are a killer!' As an English teacher, the many error in punctuation and missing words lessened my enjoyment of the book. I found it to be a well paced adventure with lots of interesting quatrains and would have given it five stars if the editing was better.
