Sarah Broadhurst's view...

His first novel, Atlantis, was a natural for Dan Brown fans to move on to. This stars the same underwater archaeologist whom I imagine is the author’s alter ego. The background research is stunning adding real depth to a great gung-ho tale. It’s Indiana Jones territory, the most enormous fun.

Similar this month: None.
Comparison: Dan Brown, Clive Cussler, Matthew Reilly.

If you like David Gibbins you might also like to read books by Valerio Massimo Manfredi, Matthew Reilly and Dan Brown.

Crusader Gold by David Gibbins

The elusive Crusader Gold: the greatest prize missing from the final bloody conflict of the Crusades. For many it is the Jewish menorah, the huge golden candlestick looted by the Romans in AD70 when they sacked the Temple in Jerusalem and marched through Rome in triumph. It was carried off to Constantinople. Now, nobody knows where it is.

Some Jewish activists today think it survived and is concealed in the Vatican. Some think it took another altogether more extraordinary turn, at the beginning of history itself ...

Jack Howard is the only man who can find out. But the clock is ticking against him. Will ancient history give up one of its darkest secrets? The quest to find out takes him from the fall of the Roman Empire to the last days of Nazi power - and uncovers a trail more thrilling than anyone could have imagined.
