Publisher's Summary

It's 1941, and Captain Alexander M. Riley and his crew of deep-sea treasure hunters believe they're setting off on yet another adventure - to find a mysterious artifact off the coast of Morocco for an enigmatic millionaire with questionable motives. Part-time smugglers, world travelers, and expats who have fought causes both valiant and doomed, Riley and his crew soon find themselves in the crosshairs of a deal much more dangerous than the one they bargained for. From Spain to Morocco to an Atlantic crossing that leads to Washington, DC, Captain Riley must sail his ship, the Pingarrón, straight through the eye of a ruthless squall and into a conspiracy that goes by the name Operation Apokalypse - a storm that only he and his crew can navigate.

    "I'd definitely listen to this novel again!"

    Captain Riley is the first book in this series. The book is an espionage thriller by Spanish author Franando Gamboa set in the early days of WWII a few months before the US entered the war. The publisher's sets up the novel superbly, so I shall not add to it. Captain Riley is an excellent novel with vivid characters, lots of action and suspense, and some nice plot twists. I am not a fan of narrator David Colacci, but he does a fine job of narrating this novel.

    The second novel in the Captain Riley series titled Darkness will be released in 12 hours. I have pre-ordered it. Tomorrow is a wonderful day for new releases with the new Captain Riley novel, a new Scot Harvath novel by Brad Thor, a new John Rain novel by Barry Eisler, and a new non-fiction book (Smear) by Sharyl Attkisson who is my favorite journalist. I'll start listening with the new Brad Thor novel.

    "Technical errors"

    The narration would normally get a 4/5 (wasn't perfect) but there were sections that seem spliced together where the audio quality wasn't the same. also, one of the chapters was missing. Also, the Kindle/Audible sync didn't work correctly.
