Another great adventure

Tomb of Eldorado :
Yet more great entertainment from Christopher Cartwright.
Sam and Tom are like old friends and it's always good to catch up on their latest adventure.
The book starts a little slower than usual , but the author cranks up the pace and the tension to its expected high level.
David Gilmore narration is superb as usual, he is the "voice of Sam Reilly books" and I can't imagine anyone else narrating.
Another great book in a great series.
I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this honest review.

Another terrific adventure!

The Tomb of El Dorado
Sam Reilly, Book 18
By: Christopher Cartwright
Narrated by: David Gilmore
I love this series! The adventure and characters always have a terrific myth or legend, a bit of paranormal, but lots of action and suspense! It's a cross between a Clive Cussler and Indiana Jones! Never boring!
The narration was excellent as usual!

Enjoyed this

If you enjoy reading Clive Cussler and Dan Brown, you'll enjoy Christopher Cartwright's Sam Reilly. He combines Cussler's treasure hunting hero and penchant for historic treasures with Dan Brown's intrigue. 



The book opens in the past with sea-faring explorers discovering strange animals and lots of gold. As is usually the case in these situations, getting back from these explorations is not as easy as getting into these explorations. 

Forward to present day, where Sam and his lady friend are enjoying the sights of Boliva when a tropical storm hits and when its over, Sam discovers a relic from the past. Now, Sam being an explorer himself immediately knows what this clue is and goes in search for more answers. These clues, to find the Tomb of El Dorado take him from Boliva, to Australia and to China, with the required bad guys on his tail.

Now, there were parts of the book where I was confused - whether it was because I was distracted and missed a passage or what I'm not sure, and I think there were times when my amateur editing ears seemed to catch things the author's editor didn't - and this is where a print edition of the book would be handy, to double check to see if I was right, or just hearing things - but overall I thought the plot was good, and the action was good. 

The narrator wasn't bad, although he has to work on his accents. However, it could have been my assumption of the characters 'voice' rather than what it actually was, so I could be wrong.

Overall, I quite enjoyed the novel, and look forward in going backwards and starting from the beginning to see how Sam's character developed, as well as looking forward to the next books out in this series.

Good Elements

David Gilmore did an awesome job narrating these 82-plus chapters. I was drawn by the sample and anticipated an exciting adventure suspense.
I loved the fantasy element for where the golden pearls came from but after that reveal the story structure failed. Sadly, I would have scanned through the remainder of the story had I been reading the book.

Another well-written, rollicking Sam Reilly advent

The Tomb of El Dorado (Sam Reilly #18), my eighteenth read from author Christopher Cartwright & the eighteenth book in the highly entertaining Sam Reilly series. A well-written rollicking thriller with captivating & well-developed main characters, probably the best in the series to date. Reminds me of the writings of Steve Berry, Dan Brown & James Rollins. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Outstanding Listen!

The Tomb of El Dorado by Christopher Cartwright pulled me in from the first cave. I so love the imagery the author writes, and the characters of Sam and Tom are so endearing. I love how they go from Columba jungles to Australia, Italy, to China in search of the gold man. The caves, waterfalls, sinkholes, catacombs all add to the story. I can visualize so much through the descriptions. David Gilmore is perfect performing this book. He brings the characters to life and adds the right emotions to the scenes. The book is full of action, treasure hunting, suspense, and harrowing escapes. I can't recommend this series enough and look forward to the next adventure The Labyrinth Key.

Exciting and addictive


Another great story, interesting and imaginative, if I was the hero I would have died on about page 9 but hey, that's the joy of stories

The narrator was excellent as usual, I always enjoy listening to him. He speaks clearly and with enthusiasm, he also had a good go at the accents.

I will continue to listen and enjoy this series of books

Sam Reilly never stops

Wow seriously this guy never stops. I wonder when he will finally say enough is enough and stop risking life and limb in search of treasure and adventure. This audio is exciting and full of drama and threat and I really enjoy the excitement of the old school treasure hunting adventure of these stories. Christopher Cartwright has an amazing way of writing these books so you feel like you are there with him under the water diving and risking his life even though in real life I don’t even like the sea very much lol. It does not disappoint at all.

El Dorado Is More Than A Myth For Sam Reilly

This is the eighteenth outing for Sam Reilly and his team yet the mystery and adventure does not diminish. In a fast paced tale of ancient legends, gold, lost cities and tribes we are treated to action, life threatening disasters, double crossing, global locations and riddles to solve. The characters are all developed well and scenarios believable, we become part of the adventure thanks to great writing and excellent narration. As always with this series we finish a novel gasping for more and eagerly awaiting the next fun packed adventure.
