Publisher's Summary

In the middle of the Pacific Ocean in 1962, at the height of the Cold War, the US military experimented with electromagnetic pulses created by detonating high atmosphere nuclear bombs. The project was code named Starfish Prime. The primary objective was to develop the ability to produce an EMP with enough force to knock out an entire nation’s communications, rendering a retaliatory attack impossible. The secondary objective, along with its consequences, was deemed too important to national security to ever be released. 

In 1983, an American B52 Nuclear Bomber goes missing somewhere near the Bering Strait while delivering a secret cargo at the express order of President Ronald Reagan to an unmapped island. 

Present day, in the Weddell Sea off the coast of Antarctica, a woman wakes up on a cruise ship to discover she’s the only person left aboard, despite no apparent fault with the ship. Sam Reilly, already on a rescue mission to Antarctica to save five French scientists, may be the only person standing in the way of the completion of The Cassidy Project.

Riveting!

Well-written! Held my attention throughout!

David Gilmore did an excellent job narrating. He kept the pace going.

Another Great Thrilling Adventure!!

The Cassidy Project
Sam Reilly, Book 5
By: Christopher Cartwright
Narrated by: David Gilmore
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
These Sam Reilly books just keep getting better and better! They are part Dan Brown, Indiana Jones, and James Bond but more grounded. Always lots of twists and turns, adventure, action, advanced science or a touch of science fiction, and wonderful characters. By now I feel like the crew is part family! Lol.
The narrator is great and it helps having the same one all the time. He does a wonderful job.

A 5* read/listen.

Suspend your belief in reality, and enter into a great adventure in a world of fiction. To be honest this story doesn't push the realms of science too far, and the storyline is possible.
It is another great read from Christopher Cartwright - this series of books keeps getting better. Lots of fast paced action with characters I've grown to love.
Wonderfully narrated by David Gilmore. (as Always).
Just impatiently waiting for book 6 now. This whole series is going onto my reread/listen shelf.

Another great entry into this series

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

This series has been really fun so far and I've really enjoyed it. The narration is good and the pacing is really fast and exciting. These books have a great action-adventure feel to them and are a lot of fun. I highly recommend them to anyone that is a fan of the genre.

Gripping!

Wow! I could not stop listening to this book. I was pulled into the story from the very beginning. Christopher Cartwright does an incredible job weaving the story. It is full of suspense, mystery, science, politics, and adventure. The Cassidy Project is a standalone listen that features the character of Sam Reilly. He is a larger than life action hero in my mind, that I absolutely love. David Gilmore adds to the enjoyment of this book with his wonderful performance. Without giving away spoilers, I never saw the end coming. Well done Christopher Cartwright. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Another great action adventure for Sam

I was provided with a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

I can't believe I now have to wait to find out what happens next. I haven't looked yet, but I hope book six is already out, or due out soon because I want more of Sam's adventures.

This book is as good as the first four. The idea behind the story is creepy in that you actually believe it is possible for the world to go that way. You have some sympathy for the bad guy at the beginning and by the end you have no idea who the bad guy is.

This is great if you enjoy the previous Sam Reilly novels, but you can listen to this one without the others. It is a brilliantly thought out idea and the action are of the usual calibre for the Sam Reilly novels.

The thing that sets this one apart for me, in a good way, I'm glad to say, it's that this one has more mystery in it. You know from the prologue that there is a particular thing Sam should be looking for, but you have no idea how that connects with the events and the people that he meets. Intriguing and very twisty, I think this is the best one so far.

Please keep them coming, I'm looking forward to learning what Sam does next.

A series similar to old style Adventure Novels

I love these books.

To me, the style these books are written in is reminiscent of the old style adventure novelists like H. Rider Haggard - who wrote King Solomons Mines and its sequel plus many other novels.

The author kindly gave me a free copy of book three and I was only halfway through listening to it when I knew I had to stop and read the first two before I finished it and was very happy to find this compilation.

If you want an adventure story that is just that without the gory bits that often are added to modern novels just to colour it but don't actually add to the story.

I have now listened to all six available on Audible and am sad the rest of the series so far is not available via Audible. I hope they read this review and consider adding them as listening via Kindle is just not the same.
