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, Dan Brown and Clive Cussler.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

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.
