As he follows a hunch from the dying confession of an emperor to the burial crypt of a medieval pagan hospel, Jack is chasing a conspiracy whose web stretches to the highest levels of international power—and he will have to risk everything to stop the controversial document from falling into the hands of a shadowy brotherhood determined to fulfill their murderous vows.

Though, if differing views of early Christianity bother you, dacid may not like this one as well, but it is fiction and I enjoyed the story. Who can say if it exists or not?

Now a fearless team of adventurers is about to unearth that long-hidden secret, and it will lead them to the most astonishing discovery ever made. What if you were the one who discovered this secret?

What if what was found there was a document that could shatter the very foundations of the Western World? His first novel, Atlantis, published in the UK in and the US in Septemberhas been published in 30 languages and is being davif into a TV miniseries; since then he has written five further novels, published in more than editions internationally. Though I did enjoy moments here and there, but the ending left me bummed out. He currently divides his time between fieldwork, England and Canada.


I’m still not sure. Unlikely objects were suddenly placed in the way and a late and improbable revelation involving a character so minor as to be a virtual nonentity set the next novel up, but gigbins nothing to this one. No trivia or quizzes yet. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. The ideas were fascinating, the plot intriguing, but I think it would have been told better in the hands of another author like Dan Brown.

Had high hopes for this but really didn’t like it.

The Last Gospel (The Lost Tomb)

Gopel I did appreciate the final flashback, I do not think the final “revelation” was ever fully revealed.

Refresh and try again. I wouldn’t have finished this one if I had had anything else to read.

Else rated it it was gkspel. Following the trail of clues Claudius has laid out, their quest takes them from Italy to London, California, and finally Jerusalem. However, I felt the book lacked just a little in the “danger” category. It was just sort of resolved. May 04, J.

This was one of the aspects that made the ending of the novel incredibly weak, although Gibbins did avoid the complete cop-out which I expected at one point. This page was last edited on 7 Octoberat I’m not sure if this book was a novel written in the margins of a boring history lecture or just a near plot-less way to show off historic research.

The narrative is simple with rather two-dimensional characters, up against a poorly executed plot and ‘enemy’. This book slams constant historical stories in your face.

And were then forced to confront terrifying enemies determined to destroy you to ensure it goes no further? Mass Market Paperbackpages.

This did leave me with a desire to learn more about the Pre-Roman Celtic Christianity, as well as Ethiopian Christianity. His novels form a series based on the fictional maritime archaeologist Jack Howard and his team, and are contemporary thrillers involving a plausible archaeological backdrop.

I did enjoy the flashbacks to Claudius’ life. OK, so with its carbonised centuries old bodies, secret tunnels, Vestal Virgins and a long lost document that not everyone is happy about being discovered this wasn’t lazt without merit its just that the expected ‘thrills and spills’ were too few and far between to maintain my interest, the author having an awful tendency to never run with them.

In order to get out of my slump, I decided to read the next book in one of my favorite series, and that was the 3rd book in the Jack Howard series, Lst Lost Tomb by David Gibbins. His many publications on ancient shipwreck sites have appeared in scientific journals, books and popular magazines. None of the discoveries made in this book were destroyed!
