David Gibbins – “The Last Gospel”

Publ: 2008 ISBN: 9780755335145
Rating: *** 3 stars

A typical archaeological adventure – heroes seeking a lost gospel whilst being chased by the bad guys who are trying to prevent its publication. Good but not spectacular. The third in a series about archaeologist Jack Howard but I doubt I’ll bother hunting for the two earlier ones.

David Gibbins, born 1962, has worked in underwater archaeology all his professional life. After taking a PhD from Cambridge University he taught archaeology in Britain and abroad, and is a world authority on ancient shipwrecks and sunken cities. He has led numerous expeditions to investigate underwater sites in the Mediterranean and around the world. He currently divides his time between fieldwork, England and Canada. Atlantis was his first novel.
