Publisher's Summary

In 1939, a secret airship departed Nazi Germany in the dark of night filled with some of the most influential people of its time.

Its cargo: a complement of rich Jewish families carrying their most valuable possessions. One such item among them was as dangerous as it was priceless.

The airship never reached its destination.

In 2015, Sam Reilly, a marine biologist and wealthy son of shipping mogul James Reilly, discovers a missing clue about the lost airship, and what follows is a violent treasure hunt kept secret by the most powerful men in the world today, driven by their greed and need for that which all are motivated: the opportunity for unlimited power.

"You got it"

Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Airship to be better than the print version?

N/A - have not read the print edition

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

This book has the generic action hero of a rich white man saving the day, so it's not all that different from say, Tom Clancy or Clive Cussler. You've got your hero, your girl, your best friend, against a Middle-Eastern warlord controlling German forces that are arrayed against the American hero, Sam Reilly.

What aspect of David Gilmore’s performance would you have changed?

Gilmore did not have strong voicing, most of the characters sounded the same. Only the character with a thick German accent stood out as a unique voice. The review's title has a phrase you will hear very often, almost always with the same inflections despite being supposedly said by different characters.

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

Not particularly, because this book seemed to force cliffhangers at the end of chapters, by throwing a twist into a situation that just moments ago had survived another twist. I listened to this in 3 sittings the first time through, which felt more natural than when I marathoned this book in one sitting on the second 'listen-through'.

Any additional comments?

Good action adventure story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A fantastic action adventure story. I thought there was good pacing, character building and an interesting story line. The narration was decent. The narrator was a little limited in his voices but not so much as to keep me from enjoying the book.

Spellbinding!

Captured my attention from the 1st paragraph. Well-written.

David Gilmore did an excellent job bringing the characters to life.

Adventure, Intrigue, Action, Secrets

The Last Airship
Sam Reilly, Book 1
By: Christopher Cartwright
Narrated by: David Gilmore
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I love this kind of book! Something lost for the past, holds a secret, others are after it.... so exciting! I have another of this author's books and it got me hooked, like a Lay's potato chip, lol. It is full of action, adventure, mystery, and intrigue. You'll have to read it to see if they find what they are looking for without getting too many bullet holes in them!
The narrator was great, kept the action and emotions flowing well!
