Publisher's Summary

Anti-conspiratorialist author and lecturer Chasen Derrick has landed a lucrative but highly suspect teaching post at the exclusive Dysart Academy in Southern California. When the dean of students asks him to lead a field trip to England, Chasen reluctantly agrees, and the first few days of the tour go smoothly.

That is, until the mass abduction. The fire. The shootings. And the medieval torture.

Now the FBI, Scotland Yard, MI5, and a 500-year-old secret group known as the Apollo Society are searching the country for Chasen and the only student he's managed to hold on to: a kid as challenging and obnoxious as King Henry VIII himself.

With a debilitating case of OCD and a panic disorder that threatens to flare up around every British memorial, Chasen is forced to confront his beliefs about conspiracy theories...and his skewed understanding of guilt and forgiveness.

Propelled by plot twists and fast-paced suspense, The Field Trip takes listeners on a humorous adventure exploring what is true in a world where things aren't always as they seem.

Delightful

Would you consider the audio edition of The Field Trip to be better than the print version?

Having the narrator read with various accents certainly helps distinguish the characters. I'm not a big reader, so listening was the best option.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It was fascinating to see Eddie's character develop throughout the book.

Which character – as performed by Wally Schrass – was your favorite?

I enjoyed his performed of Coop. Good accent.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Conspiracy of Truth

Any additional comments?

I don't generally read novels, but certainly glad I picked this one. The story line was consistently original and engaging.

Buy this audiobook

Listened to this book to and from work in the car. Found myself sitting in my driveway more than once not wanting to turn it off. Entertaining. Clever. Hoping there's a sequel. Buy the book or audiobook, you won't be sorry.

Super first novel by Greg Elsasser.

Amazing story, full of intrigue and mystery. You really can't figure out the end until the end. Powerful message. Great job Greg! Look forward to your next book.
