What if you were the one who discovered this secret?
And were then forced to confront terrifying enemies determined to destroy you to lqst it goes no further? This is the story of one last Gospel, left behind in the age of the New Testament, in the greatest days of the Roman Empire, and of its extraordinary secret, one that has lain concealed for years.
Follow Jack Howard as he discovers the secret and must prevent others from doing the same David Gibbins pulls no punches when it comes to the depth of his research in any of his books, but The Last Gospel is something else entirely: His characters have already been established in his previous novels: Also, each novel is standalone, so you can immediately pick up on the various characters without much hassle. A lot of history is covered, a lot of exposition, but it serves to set the tone of the gibbbins.
It is an intelligent adventure story that is saved from being tedious by a plot that is tightly written and gpspel characters.
The Last Gospel : David Gibbins :
The author, himself a marine archaeologist, draws on a lot of his own experiences, so the scenes of discovery is made to seem very real.
My only gripe for this book is that the relationship with the mysterious Elizabeth is not delved into, nor her relationship with the mystery people who are involved in keeping the finds at Herculaneum secret. This is an intelligent archaeological adventure thriller written by an author who clearly enjoys throwing his two heroes into the midst of a quest and then sits back to find the best way to get them out it again, by any means possible.
The Last Gospel is very much a long lazy weekend read, either by the sea or on the couch, now that the evenings are drawing near. It is a meaty and satisfying read and ticks the right boxes for this genre, especially if you are a history nut and you enjoy picking up new information to research.
I really look forward to Mr. Find out more about David Gibbins, author and archaeologist here. The Last Gospel is published by Headline and is available at all good bookstores and online.
