In the treacherous waters off the rugged Sicilian coast, marine archaeologist Jack Howard and his team of scientific experts and ex-Special Forces commandos make a shocking find while searching for the legendary shipwreck of the apostle Paul. And when a second artifact is uncovered in the ruins of a buried city, Jack is on the verge of a discovery that could shake the world to its foundations: the handwritten words of Jesus Christ himself. As he follows a hunch from the dying confession of an emperor to the burial crypt of a medieval pagan queen, Jack is chasing a conspiracy whose web stretches to the highest levels of international power - and he will have to risk everything to stop the controversial document from falling into the hands of a shadowy brotherhood determined to fulfill their murderous vows.

Even though some material was fictional book was very interesting, and kept your interest. I love book you don't want to put down. Wish I was well enough off to explore England.
I have read other David Gibbins books and they have all been excellent, this is another excellent adventure across the world, across time, much of the fictional events have some type of true historical basis.
Never read the print version, so not a valid question for me at least.
It sort of petered out for me. Makes the listener draw their own specific conclusions.
JL is one of my current favorite readers, and is impressive in this offering. He is a consumate professional.
I came close actually! It's pretty compelling!
Continues the series forward, with consistency and professionalism. Worth the credit if you are into Mr. Howard and all his drama!
Narration. Inappropriate pausing between words, phrases. Done in a "sing-song" style.
Disappointment that there is now a catch to returning books. Two every six months. That will definately change my purchasing habits.n
