1961- Space capsule Liberty Bell 7 crashes into the Atlantic Ocean and sinks in what was called an accident. But was it?

I love the Origin Series, the writing is great, the characters fun and the action is off the scale. Just what you come to expect from David Wood & Rick Chesler. This was a great match-up of authors. I would highly recommend these novellas. Jeffrey Kafer is on fine form yet again, his narration really brings the characters to life. Give it a listen.
Reading is supposed to be fun and relaxing, not stressful and demanding.
Splashdown is a book that I would listen to again. It has a film feel to it and like any good film I would want to watch it again. The same applies to this book. It's the perfect length to lay back and close your eyes and visualize the setting and the characters.
What I liked best about this story were all the fine details. I liked when they discovered the other ship. Finding the coins, the silver mercury dimes with markings on them was so descriptive. Trying to get to the Libery Bell and beat the Russians to the early piece of space tech. The whole story was brilliant.
I really like Jeffrey Kafer's steady paced performance. I like his vocal flexibility and professionalism.
My extreme reaction to this book was pure enjoyment. It was both entertaining and engaging.
I would love to hear more Dane and Bones Origins Stories. I also want to credit the authors David Wood and Rick Chesler for their superb writing. I received this audiobook free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.
