Publisher's Summary

More than 200,000 copies sold. Number-one best seller in Spanish, Italian, and Russian. The best-selling novel in the history of Amazon Spain.

Diver Ulysses Vidal finds a 14th-century bronze bell of Templar origin buried under a reef off the Honduras coast. It turns out it's been lying there for more than one century, prior to Christopher Columbus' discovery of America. Driven by curiosity and a sense of adventure, he begins the search for the legendary treasure of the Order of the Temple. Together with a medieval history professor and a daring Mexican archeologist, he travels through Spain, the Mali desert, the Caribbean Sea, and the Mexican jungle. They face innumerable riddles and dangers, but in the end this search will uncover a much more important mystery - a secret, kept hidden for centuries, that could transform the history of humankind and the way we understand the universe.

Fernando Gamboa (Barcelona, Spain, 1970) has devoted most of his adult life to traveling through Africa, Asia, and Latin America. He has lived in several countries and worked as a scuba diver, a Spanish teacher, an entrepreneur, a poker player, and an adventure guide. At present he's the number-one best-selling indie author in Spain. His books have been translated into Russian, Greek, and Italian.

    "Shouldn't have bothered"

    storyline was disjointed at best, and the narrator is the worst I've come across yet.

    "Predictable and not great narration"

    I'm a fan of Templar stories. Of course this one caught my eye. Its easy to guess what's going to happen after you get the gist. I didn't enjoy the narrator at all either. Be sure and listen to a sample before purchasing.

    "A Most Difficult Story"

    The Last Crypt as a disappointment, yet I listened to the end (with difficulty). Joe Lewis is an articulate narrator, However, the youthfulness of his voice made this story unbelieveable, and a little bit like listening to a high school play. Gamboa, the author, uses old story lines sprinkled with historical legends to pontificate on his own philosophies of life at several points, which is distracting, to say the least. The adventures of the main characters are so improbable, it becomes distracting. The thought to three unprepared people just up and traveling into the Amazon jungle trying to follow a very tenuous set on "clues" placed conveniently within their grasp at just the right moment is so implausible, it becomes most difficult to suspend disbelief, and important part of story telling. I will avoid any further works by Mr. Gamboa or narrated by Mr. Lewis. The last news story at the very end of the book made me smile, but not much else.

    "Not a fan"

    The protagonist was irritating, he whined like a child and was argumentative at the wrong time. The story was ok, but hard to get into when you find that you don't care about the characters. I finished it, but found myself wishing I'd not started it in the first place.

    "Skip it"

    Thoroughly unlikable characters, slow story, terrible narrator. Will not buy another book by this author or narrator.

    "Terrible"

    Worst book I've ever listened to. Sounds like it was written by a six year old.

    "Surprisingly a great book."
    What did you love best about The Last Crypt?

    The book is never Boring. The storyline is complex but simple in purpose


    What other book might you compare The Last Crypt to and why?

    There really isn't another book to compare it to.


    What does Joe Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't read many books so I would say he kept my attention


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

    You can try and listen in one sitting but it really his impossible.

    Story
    "Reads like a Dan Brown Novel"

    If you like any of the Dan Brown novels such as the Davinci Code or novels such as National Treasure you will like this. It has many of the same themes such as the Templar knights, intrigue in the Vatican. and a vast buried treasure. Not wanting to spoil the book, I won't give away the ending. Instead of wandering around the cities of Europe, the action is diving in the Caribbean, travelling through Mali in Africa (I had to look that up because I had no idea where Mali was),and the Jungles of Central America. The book moves at a fast pace and is a quick guilty listen.
